Here we go again.

Nordstrom and Urban Outfitters have found themselves in a legal battle with the Associated Press and it's all over a picture of Barack Obama.

The AP claims in each lawsuit that both retailers "had engaged in willful and blatant violation of the AP's copyright to a photograph that artist Shepard Fairey's HOPE image was based on.".

For those not keeping tabs, Shepard was also sued by the AP for using the picture without permission, but eventually settled out of court earlier this year.

Urban Outfitters wouldn't comment, but Nordstrom said: "We're aware of the lawsuit and are reaching out to our vendor to determine next steps".

The Associate Press HOPES to receive unspecified damages from all involved.
