Spidey, You Sellout

From the Winter 2008 Pottery Barn Kids catalog:

Reminds me of when I was a kid: I had Spider-Man bedsheets, and my parents covered my toy box in Spider-Man contact paper. I remember thinking it was cool when I was able to match the image from my bedsheets to the image in the comics. Now I look at it and think about how much it sucks that those artists aren't getting compensated for their artwork being used over and over again. For example, how much do you think Steve Ditko would have made if he had been paid every time his artwork was appropriated for something like this?

And how bad is it that I'd still like to install that mural in my own room?
