Question

So I've heard different answers to this question. If you buy a commissioned piece, or an original can you resell it? Or give it away?
What if you purchase a print and sell that off? Should you be required to ask the original artists permission? I personally don't think so. It's like when you buy a computer from bestbuy, I don't ask bestbuy if it's ok for me to give the computer away or to sell it to someone else. I'd really like to get more insight into this though so all responses are appreciated!

I think re-selling is okay, personally. That is - a lot of the time - how art accrues value as it goes from seller to seller and becomes highly desirable work. If it wasn't okay to sell off art that you'd brought, there'd be no art going off in the auctions. :)
