Well, I turned on my computer today only to find an email from RB:

It’s not RB’s fault, I know, but the piece of work in question was clearly marked as fan art and not only that, it wasn’t even for sale!!! I am fully aware of the copyright laws, worldwide, but it seems to me that someone sitting behind a desk at Marvel HQ is bored and has got nothing better to do.
Fan art is a big part of RB’s community, and for Marvel to get so petty about a leather jacket painting, that wasn’t even for sale… well, it’s pathetic really!
Ok. Rant over : )
