Arts & Entertainment "Beauty in art is often nothing but ugliness subdued." The written word, the spoken word, performance art, visual art. What is "Art?" From television advertising to opera, comic books to classic literature, vacation snapshots to the Sistine Chapel Frescoes; we are exposed to art every day. What is art to you?

Lara Is Not A Porn Star



When Lara placed a self-portrait taken at age fourteen on deviantART, she never expected it to be stolen by TVX Films and placed on the cover of the DVD porno "Body Magic." Lara asked the President of TVX Films to remove her photo and compensate her for the theft. He responded with the following email:

After a three-year legal battle a federal court in Tampa awarded Ms Coton 82,000 ($132,000) in damages for copyright infringement, misappropriation of her image and damages to her reputation.
The court found that Ms Coton suffered personal and professional humiliation, harm to her career, and damage to her physical health, The Tamworth Herald reported.

if the president of tvx had responded to her initial request in a responsible manner, admitted his error and offered apologies and some small amount of compensation, then i doubt if it would have gone to court.

serves him right for his arrogant reply.

With regard to the person who typed the above, I read it as if a woman had responded with that smug response.

Anyway good result for the plaintiff and with regard to the defendent (man or woman), he/she deserved to get their bum spanked and it could of been a lot worse.
