Some of you may remember the Gaylord v. U.S. copyright infringement case, where the U.S. Post Office used an image of a Vietnam memorial on postage stamps without the artist’s consent.

Now we have more good news for tax-payers: The same U.S. Post Office lost another copyright infringement case for using, get this, the wrong image of the Statue of Liberty. To add salsa to your Cheerios, this one’s gonna cost us more than $3.5 million.
