Copyright and Intellectual Property Theft
by Rineke de Jong, 1 Febr. 2016
Coincidentally, this morning I talked about copyright and intellectual property theft with a student. I’m going to share this discussion, because it is very useful and topical information. A good tip is: join Pictoright in defense of your copyright.
Pictoright does a very good job. They guard and defend intellectual property and the copyright of artists. They do so not only in the Netherlands, but they go far beyond our borders.
What is allowed and what is not?
Below is a link to a very informative article on what is and is not permitted to copy and distribute the work of others.
and the very brutal action of someone who calls himself an artist, but literally shows off in other people’s feathers and still gets away with it too. Hopefully this will not take too long.
It is often confusing. We are all inundated with images, texts, impressions and so on. You can take stuff literally make copies. The word says it all, then it is a copy of another person’s work. Put your own name on it, then it is theft or plagiarism. This seems to occur much more frequently than expected. You can also use it as a source of inspiration andgive it a twist of your own. Your own creativity is changing it in something else. Then you can speak again of your own work.

Film on Youtube
I recently saw a video on Youtube titled: Steal Like An Artist: Austin Kleon at TEDxKC
Starting in February 2016, this can inspire you. Something beautiful on your wall to increase your appetite. And the recipe of it, and knowing how something is made or built up.
This Youtube filmp was published on April 24, 2012. Below is the introduction to the movie of Austin Kleon.
Austin Kleon’s talk “Steal Like An Artist” is a creative manifesto based on 10 things he wish he’d heard when he was starting out. Austin is a writer and artist. He’s the author of Newspaper Blackout, a best-selling book of poetry made by redacting newspaper articles with a permanent marker. Austin’s talk was delivered as part of the TEDxKC presentation of TEDxChange.
