Author Dee Willson joins Wits and Pieces TV Host Jody Matheson and Social Media Expert, Trevor Cherewka in a discussion of copyright and ownership issues
Recently, the visual artist Richard Prince launched an art show composed entirely of blown-up photos taken from his Instagram feed. The photos, mostly of young women in seductive poses, come from multiple sources. The installation, New Portraits, launched in a New York art allery in 2014, but resurfaced in the public sphere when the photos started selling for as much as $100,000. What Prince is doing isn't new. He's a hugely successful artist who has built his entire career on appropriation.
