    You know, there was a pretty good conversation about VARA through this thread a while ago. I'm not going to repeat myself, but it's there if anyone wants.

    The panels and the rest of the building are the building owners property, not the artists.
    You can't tag something that someone else owns and then go take that property claiming it's yours.

    Is this entire conversation starting over now? Lol.

    Summary: There is a federal law called the visual rights act of 1990 that actually does give the artist some rights to their art even if they do not own the art itself.

    You can criticize that law, or even disagree with that law, but you cannot claim that the law does not exist.

    Well I guess I am mistaken on where it came from, but it’s still a POS law. And no, I’m not a party supporter of any type and, no, Bush being a Republican doesn’t be make me support him. He was never a true Republican/conservative.

    Hilarious.

    Lesson? Never agree to any ‘artist’ painting graffiti on your wall. If you do, form a written contract, retaining ownership of the ‘art’ without limitation.

    Although the jury’s decision is a boost for the 5Pointz artists, the issue is not yet resolved. The judge in the case will now make his own decision, Baum said, which will take into account the jury’s verdict, but could reach a different conclusion.

    I used to live in LIC. Hipsters bask in amateur art there. It began a weird process of gentrification and faux liberal sympathies.

    Sounds like the jury was huffing paint.
