Hey mr man this is probably a whole new topic I'm starting but, I really don't understand about watermarks and copy-write....
I think if it has an original signature then it's an original right?
just the same as is/in our birth certificates or death cert's...
everything else is a copy and to me thats fine, it's like downloading music anyone can download a CD and burn it to disk and thats fine
but they're not going to be able to get the original quality audio only MP3.... and shouldn't ALL art be free anyway? really?
unless it is personal, and if it's personal why is it personal?
for me if a piece of art has sentimental weight I'd want to share it as much as I could, in the hopes it evokes the same emotion in others it gives to me.
may be 1 day 100s of years from now they'll look back and say " HA! look how in the past they quibbled about ART - ART!!!!!!!!!!! of all things
Or may be Government doctrines will overrule basic human instinct to restrict unauthorized beauty?
take the most famous piece of art in the world to date the Mona lisa, millions of people have copies but there is only One.
As I've said great paintings especially the boat....either way I'm open to debate
