Kienitz sues Sconnie Nation, Underground Printing

According to the Wisconsin State Journal, photographer Michael Kienitz has filed a federal copyright lawsuit against Sconnie Nation and Underground Printing over a T-shirt sold earlier this year in advance of the 2012 Mifflin Street Block Party. The shirt features an altered version of Kienitz’s portrait of Madison mayor Paul Soglin. The mayor has been critical of the event where hundreds were arrested or cited this year.

Kienitz is seeking an injunction to halt further sale and production of the shirts. The suit also demands all profits from what has already sold.
