The slippery slope gets slicker.
Say that five times fast. Then take as many photos of the bean as possible. Post them in all their hi-res glory. Give ’em away. Don’t sell them.
“Christo says: don’t photograph The Gates!
From an email by NYC activist Robert Lederman:
Christo’s publisher claims a vast new degree of copyright and trademark protection. They claim they will prosecute anyone who sells their own original photos of The Gates; who makes and sells a drawing of The Gates or who even uses the words, The Gates, without their permission….They also claim to have an agreement with the media that media sources may only use news photos of the gates for the period the installation is up. That after that the media will only be allowed to use “official” photos of The Gates.”
