(AP) A New York appeals court has ruled artist Richard Prince did not violate copyrights with most of the paintings and collages he based on a photographer's published works.

Photographer Patrick Cariou had sued after discovering Prince created art based on photographs he published in a 2000 book. The pictures were taken during six years he lived with Rastafarians in Jamaica.

Prince altered and incorporated several of the photographs in a series of paintings and collages titled "Canal Zone." The art was exhibited in 2007 and 2008.

The appeals court calls Cariou's photographic images "serene." It says Prince created "crude and jarring" artworks.

The appeals court decided Thursday that 25 artworks made fair use of the photos. It sent five artworks back to the trial-level judge for rulings.
