Is This a New Wrinkle for Copyright Infringement?
The designer of the “Lady Liberty” forever stamp released in 2011, apparently didn’t make use of New York Harbor’s Lady Liberty, as model for rendering the stamp’s image; but chose the Davidson’s sculpted work, occupying space outside of the New York-New York casino hotel in Las Vegas instead.
It certainly brings to light a potential problem for bloggers, who often take photos of artwork, and sculptures, prominently displayed on public property, and then posting them to blogs.
Recently, the Postal Service in a similar incident, was made to fork over a half million dollars in copyright infringement damages, to the artist who created the Korean War Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C.
