Good Afternoon All,

I was talking with a friend today about how a digital artist designated an
electronic image as an "original". I haven't considered this issue yet,
and was wondering what perspective those of you reading might have about

What do you do with the file after the "last edition" of a print is
reproduced? Are you/we expected to erase it as is expected of a
lithograph plate for traditional art?

Thanks for you time!
