Knock Off Chihuly?

By: Diy maven Apr 04, 2007

If you’re a fan of Chihuly ‘chandeliers’ but haven’t scored the lottery yet, check out Robert Kuster’s designs, available through the Glass Artists Gallery. Although not cheap–Kuster’s very Chihuly-esque chandeliers will set you back anywhere from 2K to 20K–they’re certainly more affordable than an original Chihuly. Of course, they don’t carry the distinction of the Chihuly brand, either.

It's unfortunate that some people who call themselves artists, like Kuster and Kaindel, simply have no ideas of their own. They are not artists at all - they are business owners.

Medusa, or a frozen orgy of worms? And people pay thousands of dollars for these? Geesh.

OMG, an illuminated Flying Spaghetti Monster! LOL!

To ward off any infringement issues, all they have to do is cite the above and claim it's an expression of their religion.   ;o)

Oh Chihuly and his copyright-infringment lawsuits!! Read this Seattle Times article for some juicy details!

Is there some kind of intellectual-property infringment here? Can you copyright a distinctive artistic style? Just curious...
