Neri v. Monroe, 2014 WL 793336 (W.D. Wisc. 2014). The plaintiff Neri designed a blown glass sculpture that was installed in the foyer of its client. The client also hired the defendant, an architectural design firm, to redesign the foyer. The defendant’s website featured images of the finished foyer, including the blown glass sculpture, and noted a series of awards the firm had won for the design. The website credited the images only to their photographer.
