Copyright and Watch Duty. Rob Scholte’s Work. Part I.
Keywords:visual arguments, Rob Scholte, watching pictures, copyright
AbstractImage right is maintained by comparing the outward appearance of pictures, not their meaning. But images are made to make people watch them. Logos are a clear example: people must watch these images, and must answer to their persuasive force. With the right to protect an image from copying, the copyright, comes, therefore a duty to watch. But a duty to watch goes against our freedom of perception. It is unclear how the law protects that freedom. Rob Scholte's works address such issues by making art of pre-existing images.
