Legal resource

As artists, we know that sometimes the law can either help us out, or really get in the way. Plagiarism and copyright infringements can be clear-cut when discussing literature or commercial situations, but what about fine art? After all, Shepard Fairey is in a world of trouble right now for using an AP photograph for the basis of his Obama Hope posters. While it can't take the place of a really good lawyer, I did come across a decent website with information for us. StarvingArtistsLaw.com, while the design is primitive at best, actually provides some really good information.
