This opening chapter focuses on the sorts of culture clashes that are at the core of our more interesting issues of authorship, ownership, and infringement, examining the role that copying and copyright have played in artistic practice, the psychology of ownership, and what seems to be an increasingly accelerating ideological shift, fueled in part by technological advances, bringing about a widening of the gray area between artistic making and artistic taking. Case studies include Shia LaBeouf’s film HowardCantour.com, the early blues recording of Blind Lemon Jefferson, and the Amen Break.
