Street-Artists Beware

Tough to compete with this collection:

Music and movies have fallen prey to the digital pirates roaming the internet, but galleries are now being warned that fine art may also be within their sights. All 2300 paintings owned by the UK’s National Gallery have now been digitised in exquisite detail, as part of a print-on-demand reproduction service. The image files will be sent to other printers via the internet, giving pirates the chance to pounce. But the images have no digital copy protection at all.
