Ugh, are you still on this? Since you brought up da Vinci in such a condescending fashion, I'm going to have to point out the error in your ways.
Did Leonardo da Vinci charge admission to see his artwork? No, he did not. He got paid because patrons comissioned him to make art for them.
So when you go and see the Mona Lisa, do you pay royalties to da Vinci's estate? Nope, and you wouldn't have had to do so even the year after it was painted. Viewing art is not stealing it, STEALING art is stealing it. If you view the Mona Lisa, everyone else can still go and see it. If you STEAL the Mona Lisa, no one else can go and see it. Do you see where this is going?
