    Even if you were to use quotes from an anonymous author, you still attribute the rights to "Anonymous" + where you found said material, and when.

    Wal Mart is selling someone else's work without a) giving credit for the artist's intellectual creation and skill, and b) without paying them royalties.

    Usually when a company sells art, it's because they bought the rights from the artist first. And this material is well known enough and new enough that finding the artist wouldn't be difficult at all.

    Gentlemen, congratulations. You're everything we've come to expect from years of government training (Zed, MIB).
