Which of the following is most accurate:
Choice 1 Charlie’s painting only infringes on Artie’s if Charlie meant to copy Artie’s work.
Choice 2 Charlie’s painting could infringe on Artie’s even if Charlie did not realize he was duplicating a painting he had recently seen elsewhere.
Choice 3 Charlie’s painting will not infringe on Artie’s unless he actually used the original as a template to create his own.
