Richard Prince may find himself back in court and maybe a loss this time around for appropriation. This time Donald Graham has issued against Prince for infringement. The possible reasons for a win this time around: 

1. the work may not be considered transformative; and

2. the market for both artists are very similar 

these being the two main reasons the court found in favour of Prince in his defence of the claim brought by Patrick Cariou – see my earlier posts on this of more details.
