Artist Miro's family upset with google doodle | news | CNET News.com

Artist Miro's family upset with Google doodle | News.blog | CNET News.com This is a real shame. The Artists Rights Society has no call to claim copyright violations, after all artistic styles are not copyrighted nor should they be if they were, art dealing in styles such as paintings and drawings would dry up. I myself am an artist and have studied various styles, the movements that went with them, and the artists who started them. So, unless this artist, who died in 1983 actually created the logo, he nor his family have any kind of copyright of it. As for works derived from another I really have no idea how the law reads but from my experience in college art classes works derived from others were never called on for copyright infringement.
