The Biter Bit

"The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts has filed a lawsuit against a company for selling unlicensed reproductions of Warhol's famed artworks."

Ironic, considering the pop artist made his name by ripping off artworks of Campbell's soup cans and photographs of Marilyn Monroe.

The wider context, however, is that the works come from Thailand: "The country has rampant piracy, mostly of books, video games, computer software, movies and TV shows, according to a special 2005 report from the International Intellectual Property Alliance."
