Prince Settles with Cariou

After more than five years and a decision from the Second Circuit favoring appropriation artist Richard Prince, the parties settled last week. Cariou agreed to withdraw any claim he had to the works in Prince's "Canal Zone" series, which appropriated images from Cariou's Rastafarian photographs. It appears that each party will pay its own legal fees.

According to theartnewspaper.com:

Cariou's lawyer Dan Brooks confirmed the case had been settled but said he could not discuss the specifics or his client's feelings about the outcome. Prince's lawyer Josh Schiller said that the artist "is pleased to have this settlement and be able to focus on his work without further distraction". He added: "It is important that artists know they need not justify their new expressive work without first ensuring compliance with legally constructed statements of purposes of intent." A spokeswoman for Gagosian Gallery says, "Gagosian Gallery is very pleased by the Second Circuit's decision and that the matter has now been finally resolved."
