and obviously, if you were to follow the LAW I'd expect that almost each and every artist has been breaking the rules and/or the law...
Truly fascinating. Thanks for rounding up some info about the law. This is where it starts getting good, (as Sunset said in the other thread, SOMETHING WITH TEETH!)

Since there are sides to every tale, my side sees the ambiguity and lack of specificity in the law as a large loophole which, if closed, could terminate the circular arguing which has been taking place.

I note in the Kaufman article that, according to the author, using overruns is acknowledged as an inappropriate and common practice, but not an unlawful one. It's not Illegal, 'cause as my 8th grade algebra teacher would say, "AN ILL EAGLE is a sick bird".

:shock:
Though the statutes do not specifically deal with this issue, one that often comes up, is overruns. In many commercial printings of prints overruns are part of the process. Overruns, if they are not mentioned in the Certificate of Authenticity may not be sold, however, what they might be used for is replaced disclosed prints which are damaged. The overruns might be used to replace the damaged prints as long as the overrun print number matches exactly the damaged print number and the damaged print is removed from circulation or destroyed. Certain purists might argue that you shouldn’t use overruns for these purposes. As part of the value of the limited edition is that it is limited and with time prints do get lost, damaged and destroyed, thus, there is a natural attrition in the size of any limited edition and that is part of the basis of the value. Thereby using overruns to replenish depleted edition is inappropriate.
How 'bout that?!?

Speaking of back from the dead ;P
Not dead or gone, just not an online presence anymore really. Hasn't been here actively in ages, but have seen a post of three over at GP...
