Google drops Miro
As Joan Miro died in 1983, it was a bit late to wish the old boy a happy birthday yesterday. (Just testing.) But that's no reason for the Artists Rights Society to get stroppy over Google's celebrating the anniversary of Miro's birth, in 1893. Google has rightly rejected any allegation that it infringed Miro's copyright with its fond parody of his style, but has politely removed the offending doodle. Coxsoft Art is all aquiver. Will it get a rocket from the loopy Artists Rights Society for showing Google's doodle?
