I want to thank everyone who has contributed comments to yesterdays post and for all of your supportive words to Lauren. It turns out the saga continues. Thanks to BBIC reader Katie who recognized another stolen piece in Samantha’s collection and Isaac for figuring out the original artists: Lizzy Stewart and Jez Burrows (who have been interviewed on this blog before!).
I have been getting quite a few emails from readers wanting to know what the copyright laws cover. I’m going to do a follow-up post after I do some research, since I don’t know enough myself. Some of the topics I hope to cover: using photos for reference,”transformative use”, how long before something is public domain, where the line is drawn on “inspiration”, how to find a lawyer if you need to sue.
Please leave any other questions concerning copyright below and I will try get some information.
