VIOLATION OF ARTISAN RIGHT OF AUTHORSHIP

as jewlery and folk art collections with the National Institution of the Rights of Authors

jewelry designs are registered with Northamerican Indigenous Artisan Community

Notice to Copyright Violators:
The tianguis is an open air market where handcrafted jewelry is bought and sold. Rights of authorship is NOT something the commercial dealers lose sleep over.
On the contrary, as usual, the intermediaries are laughing up their sleeves at the artisans!
Nonetheless the indigenous craftspeople of these villages do intend to enforce their rights.
