A Picture's Worth How Much Again?

Over on NPR's news blog, The Two-Way, David Gura writes about the lawsuit filed against Vampire Weekend by the woman whose photo graces the cover of their latest album, Contra. Ann Kirsten Kennis is asking for $2 million from the band and the photographer who took the picture in 1983. Kennis says she didn't know the band was using her image, and that someone forged her signature on a release form.
