Shepard Fairey Copyright Battle

There has been a lot of talk online about the now infamous Shepard Fairey Obama poster that was produced with the help of a picture made by former AP Photographer Mannie Garcia. While I have held back from posting anything on this debate I think Stephen Colbert moderates a debate between David Ross, the former head of the Whitney Museum and founder of Artist Pension Trust and Ed Colbert, Stephen's lawyer brother. I am not sure where the legal case is with this issue I did notice that on Mannie Garcia's Hope Page he states:

In a telephone conversation on the 17th of February, Shepard Fairey acknowledged that my photograph was used and that credit should have been given as such.
