Copyright Law: What Are Copyright Laws Concerning Portrayal of Decorative Outdoor Sculptures

I intend to create a mixed-media work that portrays a local garden area. This garden area includes many decorative garden structures of unknown origin, such as stone floral mandalas, filigree elements, mosaic designs, animal sculptures, and a gazebo. I am wondering about any sort of copyright on the garden structure designs that I should consider before creating this portrayal. The work will not be a straight-forward representation of the garden, but rather an expressive reinvention of the space...

"Speak truth, sis!" — said Rashida Tlaib to fellow congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

"Some might say it was 'Shine Theory' in action — a term coined by the feminist podcasters Ann Friedman and Aminatou Sow to describe women who make a concerted effort to support one another. (In Ms. Sow’s words: 'I don’t shine if you don’t shine.') In fact, in an exchange of mutual admiration on Twitter on Wednesday, Ayanna Pressley, Massachusetts’s first African-American congresswoman, thanked Ms. Ocasio-Cortez for 'living #ShineTheory out loud.' (Ms. Ocasio-Cortez had tweeted that she was 'so ...

Settling a Debt: Can I Get Out of Bad Credit Jail by Doing Nothing

My question involves collection proceedings in the State of: Oregon Since 2003, when Social Security declared me permanently disabled, I have been unable to afford health insurance to supplement my basic Medicare coverage (in spite of the useless ACA). Nor can I even pay the onerous co-payments I incur as I am passed around from one medical "specialist" to another. Consequently, I have virtually papered my home office walls with unpaid medical bills. I tried making partial payments until I disc...

"Outside Mr. Walker’s Capitol office, protesters marched and drummed and chanted fury at what they saw as an effort to weaken unions and diminish Democrats."

"But Mr. Walker pushed through the measure, survived a recall election and went on to guide Wisconsin on a conservative path, adopting a concealed-carry law, expanding private school vouchers, enacting so-called right-to-work legislation, passing voter identification rules and setting work rules for Medicaid recipients.... The final package of legislation that Mr. Walker signed on Friday came after defeats for Republicans in Wisconsin, a swing state that Barack Obama and Donald J. Trump both won...

Podcast excerpt: Listen to TX Court of Criminal Appeals consider when it's okay to electrocute defendants at oral arguments

James Calvert is a mentally ill capital murder defendant who allegedly murdered his ex-wife on Halloween night in 2012. He represented himself at trial in Smith County, Texas and was sentenced to the death penalty. Among other remarkable elements of the case, Mr. Calvert was shocked with a 50,000 volt stun belt during the trial for refusing to obey the court's demands.

Virginia House of Delegates asks justices to intervene in redistricting dispute

Last month the Supreme Court announced that it would, for the second time, review a case from Virginia challenging the legislative districts drawn in 2011 for the state’s House of Delegates as the product of unconstitutional racial gerrymandering – the idea that legislators relied too much on race when drawing the maps. Today Virginia legislators were back at the court, in the lower court aimed at coming up with new maps for the 2019 election until the Supreme Court can rule on the dispute. Th...
