IPA/GAG Lawsuit Update
posted: April 28, 2009
As a reminder to the illustration community, the Graphic Artist Guild (GAG) is still persuing its lawsuit against fellow artists of the Illustrators Partnership of America (IPA). Dan Vasconcellos and I launched a petition asking GAG to stop this action. Many of you signed this petition (tyvm!) and the number of illustrators signing has topped at 699. There is still time to support our friends at the IPA and sign the petition. The illustrators being sued are spending vast amounts of money and time building their defenses. Your support would brighten their day.

Thanks for the update, Rich. I hope the list of names continues to grow.

Ditto, thanks Rich. I had hoped this lawsuit would not still be going on draining our colleagues' bank accounts. To read the "VII. Conclusion" on the last page of the Interim Order (no. 20 at the end of the list of documents) is scary... and to imagine if you were one of those being sued.

It's up to 702 this morning.

This law suit is beyond belief. I hope that the support for our colleagues continues to grow.
