Attorneys for artist Richard Prince say his use of photographs by Patrick Cariou in a series of collage paintings is protected by the fair use provision of copyright law.

Cariou sued Prince, an art gallery and a book publisher in December over Prince's "Canal Zone" series. Cariou claims Prince illegally copied photographs from his book Yes Rasta. The lawsuit accuses the defendants of copyright infringement and seeks unspecified damages.

No one disputes that Prince used Cariou's work, but Prince, Gagosian and Rizzoli argue that the use is protected by law.
