I.   INTRODUCTION
     Copyright law  can be effectively compared to the life cycle of a
painting. Both begin with an original work that then experiences changes
throughout its lifetime caused by damage and aging.! Depending on the
materials used and the amount and quality of alterations the painting has
undergone, the damage can cause a distorted view of an original painting.2
However,  if a museum that has greater resources and access to technical
equipment realizes the value of a painting, then an opportunity may arise
for art historians, conservators, and scientists to restore the painting and
essentially bring it back to life.
