This was not a complaint from the heirs of the victim (who died in London long after her departure from Austria), but from the US prosecutor, who claimed that the painting was submitted to the US government, which could then hand it over to the jewish trader`s heirs. The Federal Court in New York initially dismissed the case because the Austrian museum showed that the painting had been recovered by the U.S. armed forces from Nazi merchants shortly after the war, so that when it was imported to New York for the MoMA exhibition 60 years later, it was no longer “stolen” property that had fallen into disrepair. The dismissal was replaced by a subsequent lawsuit, and after years of litigation, the case was settled and the property was returned to the Vienna Museum. The case received a lot of attention when it was filed, including lengthy articles in the mainstream press. Note: Copyright laws are subject to change.

677 (2004). Street artist Alessia Babrov sued the Vatican, claiming that the Philatelic and Numismatic Bureau of Vatican City State copied her work without her permission and reprinted it in stamp form. The art was a nineteenth-century painting of Jesus by artist Heinrich Hofmann, to which Ms. Babrow had added the slogan “Use it” In addition to not getting permission from Ms. Babrow, the Vatican would have credited only Hofmann and not Ms. Babrow for the derivative work.

The works are all located in Europe, where a procedure for the transfer of restitution requests has been established.

In 2017, the Supreme Court decided to rule on another art-related case when it considered the copyrighted subject matter test when the copyright relates to a feature embedded in the design of a useful article. The case, Star Athletica v. Varsity Brands,[27] involved two cheerleader uniform companies fighting over whether the designs are copyrighted, separate and separate from the uniform they form.

The court has held that a feature is protected by copyright if (1) it can be perceived as a two- or three-dimensional work of art separately from the useful article (not incriminating that the court can recognize the art) and (2) would be considered a protectable image, graphic or sculptural work – alone or fixed in another tangible means of expression, that is, if it was thought separately from the useful article in which it is integrated. [28] This second part was controversial and the Court held that imaginary separability, not physical separability, was the norm. In reviewing both designs, the court ruled that the designs were protected and that the imaginative separability of Chevrons` design from the advantage of the cheerleader uniform did not necessarily have to be physical, but could be conceptual. The fiercest disagreement referred to Marcel Duchamp`s ready-mades and van Gogh`s paintings of old shoes to say that there had to be a physical separation; van Gogh obviously could not obtain a design patent for real shoes and Duchamp`s shovel could not be physically separated from utility.
