OBEY your art

Obey the Art

This morning I just felt the need to OBEY the suggestions of
fellow artist Jafabrit. If you follow the "obey" link you will
discover an ongoing dialogue concerning "fair use" in
artistic expression. Of course if you follow Jafa you will find
more disobedient links. It's a very slippery slope if either individuals
or corporations are allowed to copyright words or phrases
in common usage. Free use has many ramifications. It only remains
for critics to give lawsuit art a name, perhaps "The New Hypocrisy". I can
respect Fairey's art but can't understand why he is concerned
by copyright infringement in this case.
