Imitations of Faireys poster

Shepard Faireys Barack Obama "Hope" poster has been appropriated many times already, mostly in humorous ways but also for other purposes such as newspaper articles and clothing etc. I've also seen it in an episode of Futurama when Richard Nixon's head (president of Earth 3010) where they replaced the word "Hope" with "Despair".

On the link below you can listen to Shepard Fairey talk with Lawrence Lessig and Steven Johnson about what is the future for art and ideas in an age when practically anything can be copied, pasted, downloaded, sampled and re-imagined.
