Sculptor Robert Davidson has won a copyright battle with the United States Postal Service for $3.5 million. Mr. Davidson created a replica of the Statue Of Liberty for the New York-New York Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. The U.S.P.S. used an image of this sculpture for the 2011 First Class “Forever” stamp. These stamps were sold from 2011 through 2014. The United States Court of Federal Claims ruled that the U.S.P.S. did not have Robert Davidson’s permission to use this image on their stamp and ruled in his favor. The Post Office is implementing new procedures to ensure this type of mistake does not happen again. To read the full article, visit the Ars Technica website.
