Copyright Copyleft

Copyright? Copyleft? Left by Rights? Wrong? Right? Write. In this Group, founded for anyone who feels the need to discuss about it.

Who does feel honoured when others use his/her art work? (I do, to a certain extent.)
Do we have to wait for 25 to 80 years after our death until our art work is free to be copied and spread?
And in case we feel honoured already now, where's the border? Not-for-profit versus commercial use? Use of the complete art work, or can others tear it to pieces and reuse?  Only free use with credits mentioned, or 'really' free? Or copyrighted? And why?

Regarding 'copyright' and famous painters:

"Artists learn by copying old masters" - see this article.
It's not only today, but I read an other article years ago, about how the art painting used to be taught from master to pupil/trainee. Since the old masters are gone, why not still use their paintings to be taught? As Sun Wengong says: "To be here copying the masterpieces of these painters is the best apprenticeship you could have."

An other real master who apparently didn't mind his pupils copying his work, of course is the late Bob Ross.
