    Its the owner's building so he has every right to what he does with the building. The only right I can see from the artist is if the building owner makes money off his art work. The next time before this situation happens,both parties need to have some sort of binding contract to sort out the clauses

    The story is not as simple as is laid out in the OP. The artwork was done with permission and the owner of the building did not give the artists any opportunity to save their work before painting over it. The artwork was apparently very well known and could have been removed and put in a museum.

    I'm not saying they should sue, but there is apparently an actual legal case here based on an established law.

    In this brave new woke society they just might win. Depends on how many virtue points it's worth.

    Yes it is that simple. It’s not their building, so fuck em. There is this thing called private ownership.

    There's also laws, and apparently they might have a case based on one.

    There's also something called "the law." He didn't follow it. So fuck him.

    I won't argue there is a case. They're just not going to win this. Owners rights are paramount when it comes to their properties.

    How do you remove graffiti from a wall to relocate it?

    I'd guess the building owner gets to do whatever the fook he wants.
