Associated Press says Zimmerman painting is copy of AP photo, asks that sale be stopped

The Associated Press has demanded that George Zimmerman halt the sale of one of his paintings because the news agency says it directly copies an AP photo.
Zimmerman's painting depicts Jacksonville-based prosecutor Angela Corey holding her thumb and fingers together. Text on the piece that is apparently made up reads, "I have this much respect for the American judicial system."
Corey's office prosecuted Zimmerman for the 2012 shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman was acquitted last summer.
