Now, in regards to copy-write issues since you seem to know so much on... and i am fairly ignorant off it.. How did you go about being able to show this pano and asking the artist permission to show it since this is obviously going to be an issue for me since you pointed it out, and I am not expecting the copy-write laws to be much different in here in Oz... I realise this is a job of the galleries to resolve with the artist but how do you go about showing a VR like this one outside of the boundaries of the gallery. I get a bit confused on this issue since there is so much Art Work on the internet providing no recognition to who made the artwork.. It is my hope that if I were to make a VR Tour +3D-VR that I will be permitted to showcase it on my own web site.... I am guessing I will need permission to do so as well as include artist details etc... ...
This was the first exhibition of a completely unknown artist. The gallerie asked us to to the pano. The artist isnÂ´t a member of an organisation which take care for their copyrights an fees.

The "VG/Bild-Kunst" is such an organisation. They trace wherever an image containing art of their clients is published.
Newspapers as example are treated legally different because they represent a "comon interest" of the society.
But any time you show something for commercial reasons - and be it in your own business presenting yourselves as a photographer or as a gallery/museum - youÂ´ll have to pay a fee. This might not be much - but itÂ´s complicated to handle it all buerocracy-wise.
In your place i would take good care about how these things are handled in your country!
