Blog / 2015 / Open Discussions and Public Shaming: Talking About Someone Who Imitates Your Art
May 27, 2015
All of which is to say that, when an imitator is shamed by having their imitation revealed, it’s mostly only because they didn’t feel 100% awesome about the way they were working in the first place. I don’t understand why this happens, because it’s easy to know when you’ve copied too much from another artist.
The creatives featured in this post are Sarah Greenman, Adrienne Lewis, and Cindi Oldham.
For more about all this uncopyrighting stuff, check out the Rencontres Mondiales du Logiciel Libre this summer in Beauvais, France. I’ll be speaking (in French) on 8 July.
