Theft & Plagiarism Vs. Creative Inspiration in Music
The Rock Star Branding Podcast
Join Brian Thompson, Michael Brandvold & Steve Jones as we toss off another 15 min. episode talking about good theft and bad theft in creative works, branding implications, and what can happen when proper attribution and co-writing and publishing credits aren't given to their due sources.
In this podcast we discuss the recent Jonah Lehrer incident at The New Yorker, author of the book Imagine: How Creativity Works, and how we was forced to resign after admitting to lying in his book by making up quotes from Bob Dylan.
We also talk about the book, How to Steal Like an Artist, from author Steve Kleon.
