Richard Prince vs. SuicideGirls

Unless you're living under an art world rock, you might have heard that the latest artist copyright feud is going down right now. And this is something that applies to every creative and essentially anyone with an instagram.

Here's the gist: Artist Richard Prince took instagram photos from @SuicideGirls, blew them up and sold them at Frieze for a $90,000 price tag. And this isn't the first time, re-appropriating is kind of his thing. This is digging up all sorts of heated debate on artist and ownership, copyright, especially in the internet age (did you know that you don't technically own your own instagram pics?)

Here's the Twist...
Turns out, that one of the girls Prince stole from, didn't even take the picture herself. Well shit. Now this is getting interesting.

What's your take? Where does ownership begin in art? And is this still art? Today, anyone can play "photographer" behind those instagram filters, how might this change the photography world? We'll be talking about this is Twitter so follow or join the conversation there! @CreativeEmag
