After the Aug 18th dismissal of my copyright infringement case, the Federal Court has left every artist in America open for corporations to steal by refusing to acknowledge the similarities and pattern of infringements that Mr McGinley has continuously utilized to create his Levi's advertisement-work for hire- and so called art works. My copyright infringement case was dismissed by a judge who became the expert, the layman the judge and the jury using the "casual observer" test or layman, which is a standard New York Federal Court procedure, and can be applied narrowly if a judge so chooses. Click on the images at http://www.thing.net/~janine/Site/HOME.html and see the bigger picture, and that this is one a commercial artist who is repetitively borrowing from a fine artist. I am requesting you to sign a petition if you feel that as an assumed a casual observe or a layperson person, do you think that McGinley's work is substantially similar to Gordon's ? We believe the judge did not apply the casual observer test correctly or fairly and it is obvious in such a large amount of blatant thievery. As of today the US Government is providing no protection for my hard work and creative endeavors, ignoring the fact that the advertising world and ethical lacking art dealers involved made a pretty penny. This is a blow to the creative community . In attempt to intimidate me from filing an appeal, Mr. McGinley and et all are now suing me for their lawyers fees , an impoverished artist on food stamps, struggling to survive. I filed a notice of appeal so our rights to create freely without the fear of a giant corporation monopolizing on culturally important works of art. Please send this to your friends ! Fight for our Rights one Signature at a Time - peace Janine "Jah Jah ' Gordon - thank you !! peace !
