ongoing copyriots

'we weren't born just today. there have been masters before us. [..] putting them all together they create a new product, a new project, a reflection on a new society.
- philippe starck

Who controls what we see in public ?
Who owns our visual heritage/language/symbols ? 

If children learn by doing what their parents do, if information and skill is being shared through copy, if good artists copy, if everything has been done before and originality seems to have been replaced by authenticity, if advertising has changed from selling products into selling an identity and wants us to become active generators of content......
Can we still justify such a monopoly on copyrights as we have now ? 
Should we accept the stiffling of innovation and creation because of Intellectual property laws and ongoing confusion about it's scope !?

Maybe not
