Are you concerned about copyright issues using found objects?

I recently wrote a post on my blog ASK Harriete about using post consumer materials and a concern about copyright infringement.

The artist featured in the post was crafthaus artist Charlotte Kruk whose wonderful sculptural clothing is constructed with trash, specifically candy wrappers.

Your welcome to read the post and the entire series about the concept of Fair Use. There are upcoming posts in this series. Leave a comment about your experiences.

Wow, very scary.
Seems a little extreme reaction from this site about the Lego issue. There are lots of people using Legos for all kinds of things jewelry to robotics. There are whole clubs revolving around Legos. As far as I know, Lego as a company seems very supportive of these new applications.

Leggos is very supportive of this kind of artistic effort with their product, Harriete. They have made this part of their marketing strategy. But lets not get distracted by facts because the Fairy Tale continues.

It seems that this particular attack site was so egregious and cavalier in its self-anointed crusade that Wordpress took the entire site down. But that's not the end of this story. This morning the same people mounted the same site on another blog network, and this time FEATURED our Leggo friend as the epitome of all things evil in this world.

Clearly, the agenda of this site has nothing to do copyright or anything right. The owner is engaged in pure vindictive retaliation. Normally we would consider such ilk minor pests at most. The truly disconcerting part of this is that this person sees fit to "inform" retailers that this artist is doing business with of the purported legal transgressions. And remember, this is all being done anonymously.
