    What Egypt is trying to do makes no absolute sense at all and it goes against the real purpose of the copyright law worldwide.

    It would be better for Egypt to start calling it something else, charge a fee for reproducing their pieces or something of that sort, because clearly a piece that was made 4000 years ago is certainly not copyrightable by law in many, many countries and no government could get a hold of a copyright that never belong to it in first place…. if Egypt would progress with this project it could mean countries worldwide would have to maybe change their copyright laws? I hope not.

    If Egypt succeeds with this “law” then the Mona Lisa and every single masterpiece would need a valid copyright too… this could translate in art institutes, colleges and universities would have to change the way they teach, as the way they instruct by copying the master, would be against the law.

    I hope the lawyers see the impact this could cause…

    The copy write laws are confusing to me – I often take images from the newspaper – or magazines to use in my drypoint engravings. I always free hand draw them –
    I would consider it a compliment if someone did the same with one of my images.
