Use your own imagination and craft a unique project. Your original piece of art then becomes protected under the law. In the United States, copyright protection automatically exists from the moment the work is created.
Copying someones artwork and misrepresenting that it is your own is wrong; it is against the law. It is an infringement-- a violation of the rights secured by a copyright.
Showing an Internet audience how to wrongfully copy original artwork is an unethical practice.
I am in love with Jonathan Adler, his life story and his store. I work hard for my money and I'm very particular where I spend it. He sells colors, I love colors. His quilted line of pottery is inspired by Chanel. I love Chanel, and so on and so on.
After noticing a trend of four colors in last Sunday's Target ad, I decided to take a look at the Jonathan Adler store to see what color groups he is selling. I clicked on NEW and fell for the colorful, geometric square paperweights AND round crystal coasters. This is my Jonathan Adler inspired coaster project. It's not crystal and it's not round, but it's colorful and mine.
I am not a symmetrical designer but wanted to use the 9 buttons for a geometric look.
