AP Threatens Zimmerman with Lawsuit Over Finger Painting; George Returns Fire

 

George Zimmerman is being threatened with legal action over his latest painting featuring Prosecutor Angela Corey.

The Associated Press have accused him of copyright infringement because his finger painting resembles a photo that they own the rights to.  That said, Rick Wilson/AP and the photographer behind the infamous photo, are  demanding paid damages.

This photo, snapped by Associated Press photographer Rick Wilson in 2012, clearly resembles Zimmerman's latest painting. If he seeks a profit off the artwork, the AP is demanding paid damages.

I’m so sick of the clown and his shenanigans.  Since George’s last painting was auctioned off on Ebay for $100,099.99,  Rick Wilson and AP are duly owed a cut.

Daily Mail states, though the painting may be a work by his own hand, the threat the AP poses is a very real one; so long as he seeks a profit from it.

His brother Robert Zimmerman Jr. suggested in a tweet early Friday morning that they may skip a public auction and accept a private offer instead.

“We’ve received pvt offers via social media b4 planned release of sale details. Considering all options, incl. affordable prints”
