Who Owns Andy Warhol?

Andy Warhol would have been 80 years old today. I went to Warhol’s Wikimedia Commons site to get some pictures for this post as I normally do, but there were only some publicity shots and this legend:

Works by this artist are not in the public domain. They are protected by international copyright laws at least until 70 years after his/her death. Please do not upload photographs or scans of works by this artist, except those covered by freedom of panorama.

I don’t know what “freedom of panorama” is nor do I care, so fuck Andy Warhol and his art. Even pictures of his pictures are about consumerism and ownership.
