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!

Cyberspace law for non-lawyers
One thing has been made clear from these responses: copyright law is complicated!

I can't offer you a definitive answer (I'm not an attorney), but I can point you towards some more information so that you might better understand how copyright works:

Good luck!
