38_fullOriginality doesn’t mean creation from nothingness…..it can also mean reusing something in a very creative and innovative way… if we took the standards of how people create that are implicit in a lot of copyright law cases, that basically say ‘you can’t copy’, most of what we consider to be great classical works couldn’t have been created…” by  Ruel B. Balabis  aka..Editor

In Copyright on Catfish Row she discusses the work of George Gershwin and through this example, examines how estates come to control creative works and (in some cases) end up hindering the ability of future creators to build on past works. She examines the complexities of appropriation, from the influences on Gershwin himself to the work that he would later influence.
