Marilyn Last Sitting - Stolen?

Nearly fifty years later, photographer Bert Stern might get back his "Last Sitting" Marilyn Monroe photos. Taken on assignment for Vogue, Stern lent them to Eros magazine (a fine publication, if I do say myself), but never got them back. After years of tracking down the originals, he found them in the possession of two New York guys. The guys asked for a bunch of money for their return, which, inevitably, resulted in lawyers getting involved. There's lots of issues here (wouldn't they belong to Vogue? Does the Visual Artists Rights Act mean anything? Any documentation on how Eros was supposed to return them?) but greed is, of course, the driving force behind the conflict! .
