‘If somebody’s going to profit from this art, copyright may be just the tool for ensuring that that somebody is the artists themselves.’


On the heels of my blog entry on why copyright, applied properly, benefits visual artists, there’s this article in The Atlantic on graffiti artists leveraging their copyrights against large commercial corporations who appropriate their graffiti images for commercial gain.

The more interesting question, to me, is whether the same graffiti (not commissioned murals) also garners moral rights protection.
