   Great question. As art teachers, how are we to ignore the easy collection
and viewing of virtually all digitally captured imagery? Tread cautiously?
Ignore it? Issues of ownership of the image dictating the level of corporate
recrimination. Does anyone own the rights to the image of King Tut? Versus the
image of Bambi. Also I believe it is an issue of distribution of the image,
and I've read "one time use". Haha.
Of course the obvious issue of stealing another's work by accepting credit or
money is criminal. I think the masters' works of photography however need to
be shown to visual art students, particularly photography students frequently
and pervasively.
