Stupid verdict.

The building owner did fuck up in one respect:
Quote:
Wolkoff had allowed artists to paint murals and graffiti on the buildings he owned since 2002 and over time, the location evolved into a New York City cultural landmark that appeared in tourist guidebooks.


I'm not an attorney but I have watched episodes of Perry Mason and Matlock. ;-)

He allowed a precedent to develop by not treating this as "graffiti" and removing it or painting it over earlier.
By allowing it to remain, the graffiti sort of gained its own "easement" rights

Quote:
In general, the easement must be in written form. However, if someone uses part of your property over time without your permission, the person may claim a prescriptive easement. Legal action would then be necessary to determine if an easement was created.

Meme Alert: Japanese 'Have No Idea' About PyeongChang 'Penis Men' at the Olympics

I'd say the 'Dancing 'Penis men steal the show.

What's this got to do with the Obama family portrait?

Graffiti can be art; course not ALL graffiti IS art, but then neither is all the stuff that is called "art."

I thought "graffiti" ... a.k.a. "vandalism" ... was a crime ...

Quote:
... Damage to another person’s property in Kansas can result a criminal charge known as “criminal damage to property “. It can be a charge related to fraud, vandalism, arson, or other situations where you willfully or recklessly damage something that doesn’t belong to you.
... Intentionally injure, damage, deface, destroy or impair the use of property which you have no authority to do so


I guess they changed the rules and I didn't get the memo.

Orwellian terminology transformation in full swing still.

Be on the lookout.
