Kind of business related. An artists was paid public money to create/stage an exhibition (so I guess that makes him a professional artist - even if he then turned out to be unprofessional).
He photographed and interviewed local people and then displayed blurred versions of their portraits as part of the exhibition..... except he didn't. Instead he took a bunch of images from the program for the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe Festival of comedy and used those instead.
Points to ponder
1. The internet is watching... the internet will find you. Why do people think they will get away with it.... or do they simply not think.
2. By taking images of public figure (minor ones maybe but still) surely he greatly increased the chances of getting caught.
3. It could well be claimed that the nature of the work makes it transformative and as such could be considered fair use/fair dealing. Had he been honest about what he was doing the project might have been OK. Taking public money and lying about what you are doing.... not so much.
