Hmmm, Russia isn't famous for being a place where they obey copyright laws, on the other hand Banksy is not known for asking for permission before he starts to paint on a public surface. ^_ ^

A point he seems to admit himself, by the way:

Quote
The exhibition is the first time Banksy’s work has been shown in Russia. VIP tickets allow viewers to skip the line and join guided tours of the work.

Urged to put out a press release disavowing the exhibition, the artist did see some irony in going public, saying: “Hmm – not sure I’m the best person to complain about people putting up pictures without getting permission.”

It sounds more like he's upset they are charging money for it, than that they didnt get his permission.

I can't help but really really really like this sentence:
“If you’re going to have one religious monument up then it should be open to others, and if you don’t agree with that then let’s just not have any at all"
