Richard Prince & Patrick Cariou. Copyright Infringement?

A fantastic report from NPR on a trial in the New York federal court system about a painter using bits of a photography book in his paintings and selling them... for $10 million.  Listen to how artist Richard Prince got in trouble for using photographer Patrick Cariou's images from his book Yes Rasta, and people's opinions of whether it is fair use.  I think it more appropriately called "fair game" in this case.
