    Copyright infringement, is it a problem for new artists?

    While strolling through a Comic Con, people may notice big name artists adjacent to newer artist throughout the main racetrack, known as artist alley. The bigger name artists are protected by the company they work for. An example would be Jim Lee, currently working for DC comics. He can draw Batman and make prints to sell at these conventions without facing legal ramification. How does a newer artist trying to get to the level of Jim Lee, make art without facing copyright infringement or similar legal penalties? They need to get their name and brand established by making work, but if it is copyright protected how can they get away with making prints of it anyway?

    • This is a really interesting topic. Do copyright restrictions get in the way of artists being creative and channeling their talent? Does this mean that the quality of comics are decreasing due to artists fearing that accidental similarities could be deemed a copyright infringement? – Courtney 3 years ago

    Thank you for going into detail the history of tattoos. I greatly enjoy hearing that they have been around so long. That length should make them less taboo. I have one and agree that it is a personal communication of myself to others, however I agree with the point that it can also be personal for the artist. Great article!

    This article is a refreshing approach to how toys should be viewed. I feel today most people are wanting to incite some kind of deeper understanding of things rather than enjoy something for its purest form. Toys is a subject that pretty much everyone has encountered and with these encounters helps us to learn.

    I really enjoyed this article. I have very similar sentiments to being called childish for liking comic books. Some have even told me that I am too obsessed. But your analysis on the community is spot on. I find that there are people who constantly put down people for not reading a character and to me adds to the childish stigma.
