Copyright Infringement as Fine Art

Artist / pop-culturist Perry Hoberman is also a programmer. And he's fascinated by the chilling effects of modern copyright wars. For his piece Infringement Series, Hoberman created a set of Mac OS X dialog boxes which imagine a future in which saving a document from your word processor forces your text through a built-in copyright scanner. If you've been so negligent as to use copyrighted phrases such as "Like nothing else" or "Because you can," you'll be automatically prompted for payment.
