: I was hoping someone can help me get an answer to a question I have and make sense of the finer points of the Copyright Act and laws.
: If a person creates a painting, and is recognized as the artist of the picture, can someone else duplicate the picture by looking at it and resell it?
: What if the duplicate is not an EXACT copy? What if it's changed in minute ways... let's say the duplicate is 90% - 95% of the original? And then is sold?
: Is this legal?
: Sometimes these dupes are called "After-Market" paintings? What are the legal ramifications? Are these painting legal?
