George Zimmerman Sent Cease-And-Desist Over Painting
Like his last “painting,” George Zimmerman’s latest effort appears to be lifted from another source. This one targets Angela Corey, the prosecutor at his trial for second degree murder. It’s based on a photo by Associated Press photographer Rick Wilson.
Paul Colford, the AP’s director of media relations, says they sent the artist a cease-and-desist. “George Zimmerman clearly directly copied an AP photo to create his painting of Florida State Attorney Angela Corey,” he told ANIMAL. “The AP has sent a cease-and-desist letter asserting its copyright in the photo to the lawyer who recently represented Zimmerman. That lawyer has responded, and though she no longer represents Mr. Zimmerman, she will be forwarding the letter to him today.”
