Telephones, 1995 - Christian Marclay vs. Apple 2007 "Hello" iPhone Commercial

The affair of the Swiss photographer, Sabine Liewald, who sues Apple for copyright infringement, reminds art world bystanders of another copyright dispute in which the artist involved said he was approached by Apple in seemingly good faith, and then burned. Back in 2007, a blogger noticed a striking resemblance between a commercial for Apple’s new iPhone and the Christian Marclay video montage “Telephones” from 1995. Marclay later confirmed to Radar Online that this was not by accident. “They approached us [about using Telephones] and I said no, and then they just went ahead,” he said. “The way they dealt with the whole thing is pretty sleazy.”   Apple "Hello" iPhone Commercial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=mmiWTKZzBLY

Hugo Jaeger's photographs of Nazi-occupied Polish town of Kutno, 1939-1940

Hugo Jaeger's photographs of Nazi-occupied Polish town of Kutno, 1939-1940 | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it
Why would Hugo Jaeger, a photographer dedicated to lionizing Adolf Hitler and the “triumphs” of the Third Reich, choose to immortalize conquered Jews in Warsaw and Kutno (a small town in central Poland) in such an uncharacteristic, intimate manner? Most German photographers working in the same era as Jaeger usually focused on the Wehrmacht; on Nazi leaders; and on the military victories.
