We might be experts on the law, but just human when it comes to artists.

1. Page 135 incorrectly states that the paintings of Grandma Moses are in the public domain. The sentence should read "For example, the paintings of Leonardo Da Vinci are in the public domain." We apologize and hope this causes no inconvenience.

2. And just to prove that errors bunch up like cars on the freeway, page 136 incorrectly states that "The Wizard of Oz" is a classic Judy Garland film by Warner Brothers. While it is certainly a classic and Judy did a fine job, it was produced by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. We apologize.
