Alessandra,

As usual, you have done a very thorough job of researching this topic. My opinions were entirely without legal foundation. I am removing my foot from my mouth.

I will say this, though: Recently I discovered that one of my beach rock paintings is popping up frequently on MySpace. It usually is attached to the phrase "You ROCK!". At least one member is using it for wallpaper on her home page. No attribution given to me, the artist. Am I upset? Not at all. I take it as a compliment that they like my painting. (Maybe they don't like it; it's just become a sort of visual adjective. At any rate, they are welcome to use it.)

OK, I would be a little ticked if they were selling reprints. Would I sue them? Probably not.

This is a topic that I'm afraid will loom ever larger in the future. Thank you for the links you and Rob provided above. Maybe I'll read them. I admit, I'd rather go to the dentist.

Did I just put my foot back in my mouth?

Phil
