Same Question Different Artist

Today I heard a story on All Thing’s Considered about the controversy surrounding Bob Dylan’s new art show, which brought up many of the same issues of recognition, acknowledgment, purchasing rights, and so on and so forth. NPR blogger Alva Noë made the direct comparison between Beyoncé and Dylan in the post I referred to in my earlier post (read Noë’s post here).

Do you think different media can/should handle borrowing and reproduction in different ways?

    I didn’t know Dylan made art! I’m not surprised there’s controversy–he’s been accused of ripping lyrics (though I do think it’s a slippery slope in art–at what point does inspiration become copying, and how do we separate subconscious memory from personal creation?)
