The head of Tesla Elon Musk reached an agreement with the artist Tom Edwards of Colorado, whose picture with a farting unicorn he used without permission. Edwards said this in his blog.

Edwards did not specify the terms of the agreement, but noted that the solution to the problem is “like everything”.

I’m happy to report that we have reached an agreement with Tesla, and everyone likes it. It is clear that we have a misunderstanding that led to a heightened conflict, but I am glad that everything has been resolved.

I’ve always been a fan of Tesla, and I’m looking forward to being able to make mugs and sell them again.

In February 2017, the head of Tesla Elon Musk published on Twitter a photograph of a mug depicting the unicorn’s emitting gas. Due to the approval of the entrepreneur, the sale of mugs with Edwards’s design has increaseddramatically .

In March, Musk published a photo of the unicorn image to promote the drawing function on a tablet in a Tesla car. The artist accused the entrepreneur of using the image without permission for commercial purposes.

Edwards with the help of lawyers appealed to Tesla, but stressed that he did it not for “extortion”, but for “discussing and finding a mutual solution.” The artist suggested that Musk not abandon the unicorn, but conclude a pre-trial agreement and continue to use it.
