Don’t steal my art – you rat!

Dead Rat in Roof Guttering by This Window

There are people out there who will steal, copy and adapt your art for their own gain – this is not plagiarism it is theft.

Plagiarism is defined in dictionaries as the “wrongful appropriation,” “close imitation,” or “purloining and publication” of another author’s ” language, thoughts, ideas, or expressions,” and the representation of them as one’s own original work, but the notion remains problematic with nebulous boundaries.

These thieves are vermin, they are annoying and like their namesakes rats – they belong in the gutter.

They always say that imitation is a form of flattery.

A  rat’s ability to learn, has been investigated to see if they exhibit general intelligence like larger or more complex animals…the one in the above photograph wasn’t, it is now food for the flies.

Death by Sushi' Fish can kill me.

He was a grocery shopkeeper who specialized in wet fish. I think I am an artist (?)
