How would U.S. copyright laws govern online distribution of photos of public art? Does the artist own the copyright in the work?
In some cases, copyright duration can last more than a hundred years. Some say that stifles creativity for other creators. Should copyright protection last so long, or was it merely fueled by corporations trying to make more money from their intellectual property?
While taking photos of other people art may seem ordinary and even helpful from a marketing perspective, it is also a copyright infringement. And is a good example of how copyright law needs some updating.
