If you can, track down the February issue of Harpers. Inside are two related articles that will interest contemporary artists. “The Ecstasy of Influence: A Plagiarism,” by the novelist Jonathan Lethem and “On the Rights of Molotov Man,” written by the artist Joy Garnett, and photographer, Susan Meiselas. Both articles grow out of the blog Comedies of Fair U$e, A Search for Comity in the Intellectual Property Wars: symposium at The New York Institute for the Humanities at NYU, April 28-30, 2006. There you can find more about the Molotav Man as well as the full audio archive of the symposium.
