Unfortunately this article via The Art Newspaper mixes trademark, copyright and patent IP protections, but that may not be their fault. The problem is most likely caused by the inability of the Emperor Qin Shihuang Mausoleum Site Museum in north-central China to figure out just how the heck they are going to argue that they own the intellectual property rights (or all rights) to the famous Terracotta Warriors. As the rock band Genesis once said, there must be some ...

Art, Surveillance, and Privacy, is an exhibition of visual art, public art, film, performance, interactivity, public discussions, and spoken word, exploring the prevalence of surveillance and its impact on the way we lead our lives.[/caption] Mass government surveillance and corporate data collection have become the new normal.

Prince copyright infringement case.[/caption] The Federalist's Robin Ridless takes some clean power-punches at the "ivy-cloistered radicalism" of the "all-appropriation-is-fair-use" jihadists.

“Solving [the mystery of capital] requires an understanding of why Westerners, by representing assets with titles, are able to see and draw out capital from them. One of the greatest challenges to the human mind is to comprehend and to gain access to those things we know exist but cannot see. Not everything that is real and useful is tangible and visible.”
