Re: SCIENCE VS RELIGION

ezra, i do share what i perceive as your sentiment; All we have of comfort and compassion and of love is each other. i agree that compassion and love can help soothe discomfort, indeed lack of love can be most devastating. certainly our hearts are often the best guide of our hands. but our drive to ...

insufficiently specific law , by not shedding light into every nook and cranny, under every slimey rock, allows parasites to flourish.

Re: Copyright vs Copywrong

I'm a little confused by the Underground's argument. It seems they're saying that the image isn't copyrighted and is in the public domain, but that they're entitled to own it because they've been using it for all these years. It's either in the public domain, or they can assert ownership. In this c...

Re: Copyright vs Copywrong

i think someone here did bring up warhol's use of trademarked images, altered or not, as with the soup can work. odd landscape is created in the attempt to find "justice". although the opinion i linked is just opinion, and the history of the case might need completion or correction, it see...

Re: Copyright vs Copywrong

#1 sounded (smelled?)a little fishy. It was Warhol's "art"work. Whether the remaining foundation retains control of a depiction of a banana is as surreal a notion to me as that said depiction actualy HAS value. if it's iconic value was due in part to the connection with the VU, that value ...
