  • This is a powerful way to reframe the creation of seemingly new works and and interesting way to look at copying and stealing. He does not seem to address the issues of copyright infringement and really opens up a questioning of “intellectual property.” So if Apple “stole” touch screen technology, what about the fellow who demonstrated it a year earlier at a TED talk? What about the developer of it several years before that TED talk? What about Chinese “entrepreneurs” stealing , copying and selling Hollywood films the week after they are released? George Harrison was fined for stealling the 60’s pop tune “He’s So Fine” and turning it into “My Sweet Lord.” Should the writer of the 60’s tune receive anything from George? -or was it simply a new thing created on the foundation of the old?
