: There are a lot of graphics email groups that 'tube' parts of art. These 'tubes' are made in Paint Shop Pro. Some of these people are putting their own watermark on copywrighted art, what is the law concerning this? They take a Jonathon Browser Goddess pic and take out the background, then they 'mark' the Lady as their own work. Isn't this illegal??
The original creation of a work including infringing copyright matter or public domain matter is entitled to a copyright even if it may be in trouble as an infringment.
