An embarrassing mistake involving a Statue of Liberty stamp could come back to haunt the U.S. Postal Service.

The "forever" stamp design released in 2011 was not based on the statue in New York Harbor, as intended, but on a replica outside the New York-New York casino hotel in Las Vegas.

Now, the sculptor who made the Lady Liberty of the Las Vegas Strip is suing the government for copyright infringement. (AP)
