: : They are very nice at the Library of Congress wher the Reister of Copyrights is. I think the number is 12027079100. You can get if from Washington DC information if that doesn't work. The copyright laws are very strong but copyright owners cannot catch all infringers. I believe that taping off a TV screen is probably an infringment. The taper will not get in trouble unlese they try to sell and get caught. Many photocopies are infringements. It is too hard to police. There are efforts to find ways of dealing with this type of infringement. There are even stong criminal statutes involved with copyright infringment. Casual infringement is har to trace. ASCP polices music and licences its use. That is well organized.

: Yes it is hard to catch those that infringe on the coopyright laws. But as a professional portrrait photogrpaher the only money that i make is on the resale of reprints of those portraits that the client likes. If they are copied it is stealing my ideas and using it for their own pleasure without me making the intended proffit. That in the eyes of reasonable people lis stealing and i am protected by the copyright laws.
: lI just came from K Mart and had one of my images copied on their scanner. The sales girl told me to just go ahead and do it. I am going to make sure that this never happens agaii
I am an artist, and I specialize in painting portraits. Is it against the copywrights laws to paint a portrait of Madonna from an actual picture in a magazine? Am I stealing anothers person idea? I had an art teacher who said that as long as it's not a photocopy that I am taking of the real picture it is not against the law. As long as it is a paint that I am doing with my own hands then it is not problem. Is that acurate?
