Chris Follows kindly excerpted Rob Storr's talk from my panel at SVA in February. (Feel free to copy the embed code, as I did here, and distribute where appropriate). The video recording of the full panel (and Q&A) can be viewed on SVA's iTunesU site.

Rob Storr provides a clear introduction and overview of the historical and contemporary issues around artists and appropriation. These are similar tensions to what the open educational movement in terms use are reuse and open educational practice are experiencing in teaching practice and general OEP practice.
Please see ( http://process.arts.ac.uk/content/egoer-and-ip-oer-case-study-example-open-arts-practice ) where I talk about EGOER (not worrying about being/practicing online, just go for it) & I give a brief example of an IP, IPR case study/experience.
Rob Storr is an artist, critic, curator and in 2006 was appointed Professor of Painting and Dean of the School of Art at Yale University. He was curator in the Department of Painting and Sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, from 1990 to 2002. Mr. Storr has taught at the Institute of Fine Arts, NYU, at CUNY, the Bard Center for Curatorial Studies, Rhode Island School of Design, Tyler School of Art, New York Studio School, and at Harvard. He has written numerous catalogs, articles, and books, and is the recipient of many honors and awards, too many to name here. He is currently Consulting Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and in 2007 was chosen commissioner of the 2007 Venice Biennale, the first American invited to assume that position.
