    the artist unless compensated for it..or gets part of the merchadising

  2. The actual mural belongs to the owner (the town, individual or company that paid for the mural), however the image belongs to the artist who may agree to reproduction for any purpose stated in the contract.
    The artist may deny the use of the image for any use of reproduction. The artist may demand additional fees for commercial use.
    The owner can not alter the image, or cover any part of it.
    The artist may ask that any small trees or movable objects that block the public view be removed.
    The end game is an agreement by both parties, and either side may cancel or re- negotiate the terms.
    The artist owns all drawings, designs, and research material that that was not given to her/him by the owner. Use of this material may be given or sold to the mural owner.
    The last word is NEGOTIATE.
