    What are the moral rights of the artist in this case? Does an artist have a right of non-attribution? Has the artist deliberately devalued a collector’s asset and what are the implications of that act?

  • Hi Louise,
    These are great questions, which I will answer shortly.
    Let me give them some more thought and I will post.

    Great questions!
