1. It's distressing.

I just started a digital painting class and was informed that the college can use any work done in that class without permission.

3. As some of the discussion in the article suggests,

your college or whoever informed you of this may be wrong. Don't just accept it as a given.

2. So there could be an assignment to create a commercially viable piece of art?

4. Well

if anyone who creates imagery or written materials attaches a copyright before it's submitted or even visible... And I can smell a lot of taxpayer $$ being wasted on legal defense of these institutions...

As an artist, I object.
