>I agree with you that these conversations are rediculous. They serve no useful purpose and do nothing other than scare the new woodturners and make them afraid to post a picture of something they made.

Nobody here will ever have to face the problem because none of us will ever turn anything in our lifetime that will have enough value to cover one days worth of legal and court fees in a copyright action. Comparing our turned wood with Chihuli is equally rediculous. His art sells for 100's of thousands of dollars, and that is worth suing somebody over. It is the rare piece of wood that will rise to anywhere near that kind of money.

When somebody asks, I tell them to turn what they want, and forget about it. It really is much ado about nothing.
