Artist copyrights land as artwork and saves it from development

artist copyrights land as artwork

When oil companies continually pestered artist Peter Von Tiesenhausen to drill on his land and wouldn’t take no for an answer and made it clear that he only had rights to the top 6 inches of soil and they had the rights to whatever was underneath, he threatened to sue them if they disturbed his 6 inches of soil because he has developed artworks all over his property and therefore the entire property is an artwork.  Nice going, Peter!
