Is Artist Barred from Selling His Own Artwork?


But more importantly who will win the BCS title? And a quick note and correction out there, the game between the Texas Longhorns and the Alabama Crimson Tide will be on January 7th, at 8pm EST, not January 8. I strongly believe the Longhorns will surprise again as they did in 2005 against USC. Any takers?

Now the legal part. The artist who made paintings inspired by the Alabama Crimson Tide football team was sued by the University of Alabama for trademark infringement. The Tide lost. Now the artist, Daniel Moore, objects to a “part of a judge’s order that says he can’t reproduce his artwork for things such as calendars.” It seems pretty clear cut. If Moore owns the copyrights to his own paintings, and they don’t include any Tide logo or trademarks, then it seems to me he’s in the clear. We’ll see.
