Like taking flowers from babies

Albuquerque’s Georgia O’Keeffe Elementary School, opened in 1988, has come under written attack from the Georgia O'Keefe museum in Santa Fe for copyright infringement — even though the museum’s acquisition of the artist’s name came years after the school was named. E-mails from the museum warned of possible trademark infringement and suggested that fees may be required for some uses of the name. Even though the school has never used the artist's work or images, the museum believes that just using the name means that the school should give them a cut of any fund raising done to benefit the kids of the school. This isn't the first academic attack launched by the museum since taking control of the O'Keefe IP.
