gorbachev’s birthmark copyrighted

I was thinking about doing a series of paintings of Gorbachev’s birthmark (I was going to paint different patterns within the shape or put the birthmark shape on different simple items.) I was doing some research on the net hoping to find a photo and much to my surprise I found out that Gorbachev copyrighted his birthmark earlier this year!

didn’t you make some art featuring Gorbachev in college? how about a link? if i’m wrong, then obviously disregard my link request.

I have the parsley leaf from Gorbachev’s taco salad when he was at the Hard Rock Cafe in Chicago.

you still have the leaf? or you have a photo of it? i hope you don’t still have the leaf. that’d be gross.

the leaf is sealed in a lucite frame. it is quite happy and preserved.

The real question is WHY do you have the parsely from Gorbachev’s Hard Rock Cafe Taco Salad?

so basically you have a piece of Gorby’s rejected food. he says “i don’t want this old piece of parsley” and you say “great! i’ll take it!” it’s definitely not your typical souvenir.

does this happen to Gorby everywhere he goes? perhaps you should check eBay for other atypical Gorby souvenirs, like the ones you have. you could start a club.
