If you’ve been following the sports, economic or photography news, you’ve probably heard about the photographer suing Nike for violating the copyright of one of his Michael Jordan images, while creating the famous shoes and athletic clothing brand.
Obviously the lawsuit made headlines due to it involving one of the most powerful sports brands and the greatest player to have held a basketball. I mean, such violations occur on a daily basis. So strip the story of the big names, and aren’t we left with just another boring copyright case? Absolutely not, and that’s what I believe most photographers have been missing.
