Nix on Google/Miro remix

Summary: Just as Google celebrates its ascendent quarterly earnings release, the family of artist Joan Miro cites copyright violations for remixing the artist works in a Google logo (on Miro's birthdate). "It's a distortion of the original works and in that respect it violates the moral rights of the artist,'' said Theodore Feder, president of Artists Rights Society in a Mercury News story.

Just as Google celebrates its ascendent quarterly earnings release, the family of artist Joan Miro cites copyright violations for remixing the artist works in a Google logo (on Miro's birthdate). "It's a distortion of the original works and in that respect it violates the moral rights of the artist,'' said Theodore Feder, president of Artists Rights Society in a Mercury News story. At least, they weren't asking for money. Google complied with the family's wishes, apparently not willing to fight the remix legal battle. Nice logo though, and it might help sell some Miro reprints...or may the Google billionaires might run up the price on Miro orginals.
