    Wall Mural Copied

    Jurisdiction / State: Nevada

    I painted a wall mural and just found out that it has been copied exactly and painted elsewhere. I was told that it was projected on the wall, traced, and painted. What steps can I take to have it stopped and removed?

    Thanks

    Did you copyright your work?

    If not, all you can do is admire the copycat's work.



    Even if you had copyrighted your work, there is little more you could do for FREE!

    Now, if you're rich, I mean FILTHY, 1%, RICH; get thee to your lawyer.

    You know, the lawyer you have on a $100,000 a year retainer, ready to do battle for you.

    If you're a 99%er, forget about it.

    As some folks say, FECES HAPPENS!
