Lawsuit Over Guervara Photo

NPR's Julie McCarthy reports from London on Cuban photographer Alberto Korda's lawsuit against a British ad agency for using his world famous photo of Cuban Revolutionary Che Guervara to sell vodka. Korda snapped the picture in 1960 and later gave it away to an Italian publisher. The lawsuit argues that Korda's copyright has been infringed, even though it seems as if the photo is in the public domain.
