I really don't think that girl knows what she has done, she emailed me this:
Have you ever seen how many copies of Van Gogh's, Dali's, Pollocks, etc are on Ebay by the way...?
That is not copyright infrigement, even if their families hold rights to their originals. I took the painting down , but I still think you should reconsider because if someone can copy a van gogh and sell it, then someone can copy one of your paintings too. It's not illegal. If it was, then ebay would have 3396 less paintings at the moment"
LOL! I don't know whether to laugh or cry - do most people really not know this much about copyright law? Expired copyrights? Public domain? Living artists? The depth of ignorance regarding the subject out there is darned scary sometimes.
It looks like she has a suggestion for the rest of you too: http://www.livejournal.com/users/jasminetoad/238335.html?thread=1721087#t1721087
Um, I'm just going to leave this one alone......
