Re: Celebrity Portraites Question

I agree - a photo is just as much a work of art as a painting...just using different tools.

I think that a work is copyrighted for the life of the artist plus 75 years, and then the descendants of the artist have the option to renew a copyright at that time as well.

If I could recognize my artwork in someone else's digital artwork, I don't think it is ok.

Copyright is important to all of us and following the rules will help ensure protection and creation of original ideas. Respecting each other's rights is all of our responsibility.
