Rightyright then. NIGHT WATCH on its way. In the opinion of The
Committee, the improvement you have shown in perceived perception merits
the disposition of not only this treasure, but you will also receive (2)
Imperial Eagles (heroic), one Sadam (rampant), and a generous supply of
polish. Your home is also being considered as a storage/staging are for
the entire works of Christo.

All the best,
R.A. Cantrell

In the U.S., he can use the First Folio for even more outrageous
purposes, as: (1) F1 is not a work of "visual art" and (2) the author is
in no position to protest.  17 USC sec 106A

As a practicing librarian, I'd just like to clarify the question of
"moral rights".  This wouldn't ban the destruction of any item.  What it
bans is the republication of an item either without crediting the true
author, or with alterations  which the author does not approve of.  An
interesting recent example involves the exhibition by Jake and Dinos
Chapman of Old Master prints defaced in various ways.  Had the prints
still been in copyright this would be a textbook breach of moral rights.
