prada sunglasses report,As part of the deal, New York artist Shepard Fairey has agreed not to use another AP photo in his work without first obtaining a licence.

The two sides have also reached a financial settlement, the terms of which have not been disclosed.

The case relates to a picture of the US president taken in 2006.

Street artist Fairey used the photo, taken by Mannie Garcia, when he created his Hope artwork during Obama's 2008 presidential campaign.

Fairey sued AP in 2009, seeking a declaration he did not violate its copyright with his iconic image.

AP then counter-sued, saying he did through his uncredited and uncompensated use of its picture.

The deal calls for both sides to work together with the image and share future rights to merchandise based on it.
