Kat Von D Draws Infringement Suit

To prevail in this lawsuit against Kat Von D, the photographer will have to prove that the tattoo artist had access to the copyrighted Miles Davis portrait and copied it.  Based on this article, Kat Von D wasn’t hiding the copying.  I don’t know all of the facts, but there is probably some merit to this case.  A copyright owner has the exclusive right to reproduce the work, even if skin is the canvas. https://www.msn.com/en-us/music/news/kat-von-ds-miles-davis-tattoo-draws-copyright-infringement-suit/ar-BB1dxZ7I
