As an artist and a media practitioner, this issue of theft of property and intellectual rights is much of my concern. We people who do art especially for a living must know the very limitation of our craft through propriety reasons. We ourselves are the police in preventing plagiarism. We can’t avoid being inspired through artwork of others that is a dilemma. Surely, we know ourselves if we imitate an artwork in particular or even in a percentage scale. We are artist, we creative people and we don’t deny reality. We are not stupid to accidentally copy an artwork, we are artist because we know and understand further because we are ALWAYS AWARE. Stealing an idea, owning it and taking profit to it is not the way of an artist. You have no right to call yourself an artist then, you must be a patron!

I believe blogging it this way is the best thing you can do, you made us know what is yours.
