Singer Pink and her label Zomba have been sued in the SDNY for infringement by artist Vladimir Kush over alleged unauthorized use of his painting, "Contes Erotiques" in a music video for "U + Ur Hand." In the video a book opens up, revealing Pink dressed as a car mechanic. Wikipedia has a lengthy entry that tells you more than you want to know about the song and the video, here. Here is a link to the video, which begins with a toy figure of a woman, mostly nude, mounting the spine of a book and opening it up. Through the video, the book opens up and shows pictures of Pink as well as various text.
Vladmir Kush is a Russian emigre. (See his own story of himself here). Kush's painting (link here to his site to see the work) depicts a naked woman mounting a book's spine with a quill sticking through pages. Other than a rather trite metaphor, the meaning of the painting is lost on me, but then so is Pink. That said, I far prefer the painting.
In my opinion, it is extremely likely that whoever created the image of the woman that opens the video (and I would be surprised if that was Pink herself), did so after seeing Kush's work. But Kush doesn't have a copyright in the idea of a naked woman mounting the back of a book even if he was the first to come up with it (something I have no way of knowing). Moreover, after the quick initial showing of the toy woman in the video (which doesn't much look like Kush's anyway), the scenes with a book opening bear no resemblance to Kush's work.
