Not so infallible

Imagine this: a street artist is suing the Vatican for copyright infringement!

Street art in Rome for anyone who has been there is a force to be reckoned with: there you find art everywhere from San Lorenzo to the Piazza di Spagna. Among crumbling apartment blocks, disused warehouses and decaying railway stations you will experience what is essentially a decorated city. Apparently, some bright spark from the Vatican saw Alessia Babrow's painting of Jesus near the Ponte Vittorio Emanuele II, not far from the Vatican and decided to put it on a stamp from the Eternal City which was issued over Easter.

Now, Alessia is suing the Church for copyright infringement. It seems that even the papal doctrine of infallibility does not get you very far when it comes to taking other people's work. If someone has taken one of your creations – whether it be a piece of music, art, sculpture or writing and used it unlawfully, contact us. Our motto is: if you created it, then it's yours.
