Hmm … I tend to think this particular Founding Father would NOT be happy with Glenn Beck using his image … but he’s been dead for a long time. I bring that up for legal reasons, because helps to define what we call the “public domain.”
So actually, even though Shepard Fairey’s Obama art is legally problematic, I do wonder if Beck can do this under “fair use.”
Legal scholars, your opinion is welcome. (And those who have something to say about Glenn Beck…)
P.S. Glenn Beck “paints”?!?
