班克斯指責服裝品牌Guess竊取藝術作品

他在Instagram上寫道。"他們不問青紅皂白就幫我的藝術品,你對他們的衣服做同樣的事怎麼會有錯呢?"

在這位藝術家發布信息鼓勵入店行竊(一種刑事犯罪)之後,Guess關閉了這家商店,在外面安排了保安,並遮蓋了櫥窗的展示。該店的工作人員拒絕接受BBC的採訪。

版權律師Liz Ward是Virtuoso Legal的創始人,他說Guess "似乎是通過第三方,即Brandalised,合法地獲得了班克斯的藝術作品,他們說他們有權利將班克斯的藝術作品商業化並用於商品上"。

她說。她說:"不知道班克斯是否同意或者甚至知道這筆交易。如果他確實知道,那麼他的評論也許是為了創造某種游擊式的營銷活動。如果他不知道,那麼他一定很惱火,尤其是這樣的主流公司和品牌並不符合他的反體制觀點。

鼓勵入店行竊是不對的

"簡而言之,班克斯應該起訴Brandalised和Guess對其作品的侵權行為。然而,鑑於她/他想保持匿名,這很可能是不可能的。"

本周早些時候,班克斯贏得了上訴,允許他在歐盟知識產權局保留其最有名的圖像之一--一個穿着三明治板的錢的商標。


He wrote on Instagram: "They've helped themselves to my artwork without asking, how can it be wrong for you to do the same to their clothes?"

After the artist posted his message encouraging shoplifting, a criminal offence, Guess closed the store to the public, placed security outside and covered up the window display. Staff in the shop declined to speak to the BBC.

Copyright lawyer Liz Ward, founder of Virtuoso Legal, said Guess "appear to have legitimately sourced the Banksy artwork via a third party, namely Brandalised, who say they have rights to commercialise and use Banksy's artwork on goods".

She said: "It isn't known if Banksy approved or even knew about this deal. If he did know about it, then perhaps his comments are there to create some kind of guerrilla marketing campaign. If he didn't know about it, then he must be quite annoyed, especially as such mainstream companies and brands don't accord with his anti-establishment views.

'Not right to encourage shoplifting'

"The short point is that Banksy should be pursing Brandalised and or Guess for infringement of his work. However, given she/he wants to remain anonymous, that may well be impossible."

Earlier this week, Banksy won an appeal to allow him to keep the trademark of one of his most famous images, a money wearing a sandwich board, at the EU Intellectual Property Office.
