copyright jackass

so i remember standing in the louis vuitton shop at the © MURAKAMI exhibit at MOCA, thinking is someone really going to pay this much money for a left over piece of purse on stretcher bars? well they did..and they're pissed.

i loved this exhibit, and have thought of it often. i now love it more since this story goes along with it. [what the gloominati says.... what the man says...]

this jackass is just a highend flipper who has fallen on rough times in the economic climate and needs cash. turns out he should have actually understood, or at least liked, the art he invested in.

and as it turns out i learned something about the CA fine prints act [civil code section 1740-1745.4]. which should come in useful... and found this..
