Such as copying a painting or sculpture. :-)
*If* the work satisfies the originality requirements for an artwork (and
these vary internationally) then an artwork fixed in the form of a
sculpture or painting gets copyright as soon as it is created.
Copyright can therefore be infringed on such work, whether through
digital, analog, mechanical or manual copying, and a copyright license
can therefore also be offered.
