I'm sure everyone has heard of Luc Tuymans, a wonderfully talented Belgian Traditional Artist.  Recently he has come up in the news though in a highly publicized plagiarism case in a Belgian court, a case which he has lost.  It all stems around his recent painting entitled A Belgian Politician in which he used a photograph belonging to Katrijn van Giel of Belgian MP Jean-Marie. 

The two works are shown below as they appear on a newsletter I subscribe to called PlagiarismToday.  It is very obvious they are the same image, though one is a painting.  Despite Tuymans insistence to the court that his work was a parody and was not intentionally infringing, the Belgian court ruled that the painting was a copyright infringement and ordered him to stop exhibiting and reproducing the painting or failure to do so will result in a $580,000 fine (€500,000).

Here's a link to the article on  PlagiarismToday



This case brings to mind a lot of works I have seen here on DeviantART.  Paintings & drawings of photographs from right here on DeviantART where people have not done the polite thing...  ASK FIRST!  There are a lot of "artists" here on DeviantART who think that copyright is a joke, and carelessly flaunt infringements all the time.  It is not a joke, it is serious business, and can end up costing a LOT of money to an unsuspecting artist in the long run. 

Opinions anyone?





Anyone need commissions on any work?  You can find me here:
