Hmmm, I have a feeling I'm opening a whole new can of worms by returning
to this old discussion, but I bought this really cool-looking stone
figurine of an otter recently.  I've found a site that sells them on the
internet, just so people have an idea of what it looks like: (for the record, I have
the one called Oprah; it looks much cuter "in person" :-D).

Now the question I have is simple: I know the otter itself is copyrighted
artwork, but what about the photographs?  Does the copyright belong to the
artist, or to whomever took the photograph?  In other words, if I snapped
a picture of that otter, could we use it?
