[tcb] Re: Crazy!

I am not a lawyer, or even a caveman lawyer so you need a more educated opinion 
than mine on this matter.  

I would think that photos of something in a public place would have little 
protection.  I'm guessing photography of the MonaLisa is prohibited and the 
image has a copyright, but I don't understand the complex laws I'm just a 
caveman.
