copyright

.........buying a work of art is a different thing to buying the copyright for that work.... so even if you buy a painting you do not inherently have the right to produce copies of that painting on a website or catalogue if you are a gallery or a t-shirt or anywhere else...to do that you would need to also attain the copyright or at the very least, permission to use a particular image and this may or may not require financial remuneration depending on your intention...check with the Australian Copyright Council and/or Viscopy to be clear on the legalities involved so we may all avoid paying solicitors and wasting time that might otherwise be spent at the beach....
