Mr Brainwash

The Oscar-nominated documentary Exit from the Gift Shop detailed the incredible rise of Thierry Guetta from an amateur documentarian to an art world sensation known as "Mr. Brainwash." But now Guetta, whose work has set off a number of debates about the nature of originality in art, is in serious legal jeopardy thanks to a California federal judge who has determined that Guetta's work on one of his showcase pieces -- a manipulated image of the iconic rap group, Run DMC -- was outside the bounds of copyright law. - Eriq Gardner
