AP Settles Dispute With Obama Hope Artist

The Associated Press has settled the lawsuit against street artist Shepard Fairey, who is known for creating the Barack Obama HOPE image.

AP sued Fairey because they believed he violated their copyright of the original photograph. But they have resolved their differences!

A statement from the media organization reads:

"Mr. Fairey has agreed that he will not use another AP photo in his work without obtaining a license from the AP. The two sides have also agreed to work together going forward with the Hope image and share the rights to make the posters and merchandise bearing the Hope image and to collaborate on a series of images that Fairey will create based on AP photographs."

The financial terms remain confidential.

A federal judge dismissed the AP's complaint on Tuesday at the "suggestion of settlement" between the parties.

We're excited to see the future collaborations between the two!

New Details Emerge About Katy & Russell's Wedding

new details emerge about katy and russells wedding

Sounds like Katy Perry and Russell Brand had quite the wedding!

Here's what an insider had to say about the event:

“The wedding was so fun that it was almost exhausting!”

More from the insider:

“They put everyone up at the Aman-i-Khas and even had saris and turbans sent to everyone’s rooms so they could wear them to the rehearsal dinner.”

The insider said that the wedding party was orchestrated by Beverly Hills party planner Mindy Weiss. The Indian themed party included a hookah lounge tent, dance tent, and many daily activities for all the guests.

Here's what the insider had to say about the wedding invitations:

“The invitations were really cool because they were done by the same guy who made the Barack Obama ‘Hope’ election posters."

As for family, the insider said that Russell's mom was his only family member in attendance.

Here's what the insider had to say about some less-than-awesome aspects of the wedding:

“The only bummer to the wedding is that it was so hot in India and they had all the tents air conditioned, so a lot of people got sick from going in and out of the heat and cold."

“They had no band and no performer at the wedding, just a deejay."

And here's more wedding awesomeness, according to the insider:

“One of the cutest things is that Russell rode into the ceremony on an elephant, but there was another elephant walking beside his because apparently they’re fraternal twins and can’t be separated or else they’ll both have panic attacks.”

Those elephants sounds adorbs! And overall, it sounds like it was a wonderful wedding!

Would U want to have a wedding in India? Where would your dream wedding take place?
