And in a reductio ad absurdum the argument could be applied to *any* kind of representation, by whatever means, of *anything* where someone feels they have some "intellectual property rights".
Even when artists have not appropriated they have always stood on the shoulders of others, for techniques, for subject matter, for an appraoch to that subject matter, for materials, for everything. Human beings are irredeemably social in all they do and art is no exception.
