ABSTRACT
The article looks at a legal dispute between Long Island, New York property owner Gerald Wolkoff and a group of graffiti artists known collectively as 5Pointz. Wolfkoff gave the artists permission to paint on and inside his unused buildings in 1993, but later decided to destroy the buildings and replace them with an apartment complex. Artist Jonathan Cohen filed an injunction to stop the destruction of the buildings, citing the U.S. Visual Artists Rights Act (VARA) of 1990.
