I just came across Inkscape and have been enjoying playing around with it (it's a drawing program that's good for vector illustrations).

One of the sample images on their website was a vectorized version of Michelle Trachtenberg. That made me wonder... what kind of legal issues are there with making vectorized versions of copyrighted photographs (in this case, a photograph of a celebrity)? Is the vector version considered a new piece of art that can be sold without regard for the original photograph?

EDIT: I just noticed the copyright on the bottom right of the vectorized Michelle. I wonder if that belongs to the photographer or the person vectorizing the photo.

When building an application, when is the most important time to consider the User Experience?
They are the ones we write code for, right?
