    Bob Dylan accused of plagiarism

    On CBC today. Looks to be the start of another derivative/transformative debate.

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    The highway is for gamblers, better use your sense
    Take what you have gathered from coincidence
    The empty-handed painter from your streets
    Is drawing crazy patterns on your sheets
    This sky, too, is folding under you
    And it’s all over now, Baby Blue

    - Bob Dylan

    There is an article on the New York Times as well; it seems he had a fondness for some of HCB's work.

    http://artsbeat.blogs.nytimes.com/20...20dylan&st=cse
    Once a photographer is convinced that the camera can lie and that, strictly speaking, the vast majority of photographs are "camera lies," inasmuch as they tell only part of a story or tell it in a distorted form, half the battle is won. Once he has conceded that photography is not a "naturalistic" medium of rendition and that striving for "naturalism" in a photograph is futile, he can turn his attention to using a camera to make more effective pictures.

    Joan Baez has been warning us for decades about Dylan, but does anyone listen?
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    Who gives a toss about "celebrity" artists? Usually a bit oxymoronic anyway, no?

    There is a long (and sometimes nasty... ) thread over on LFinfo about the guy who pixelized Jay Maisel's Miles Davis portrait. Much of the argument revolves around the difference between "derivative" and "transformative" use of someone else's art. It appears that Mr. Dylan has planted himself firmly beyond any shades of grey in the debate.

    But he's still Bob Dylan and you're not.

    IT IS FAR FROM DERIIVITIEVE... it's damn plagerism.

    Derivative, I know that ain't good...Warren Buffet said so a long time ago...but I still like Bob's hat in the picture

    .....Anyway...

    I know a guy that can sing Dylan better than Dylan, and he's a lot more fun.
