Associated Press, the fair use litigation in which Associated Press accuses artist Shepard Fairey of copyright infringement in connection with a painting he did based upon a portion of a photograph which appeared in the AP, the actual photographer -- Manuel Garcia -- has now moved to intervene in the action, claiming that he -- and not the Associated Press -- is the owner of the copyright in the photograph.
