And I was so self-righteously RIGHT, too! My righteous indignation was RIGHT. And indignant!

Goddamn facts.

(I still think that once you place your art in a public space you invite comment, parody, discussion, analysis, interpretation, etc. Jimi Hendrix said he didn't really like doing albums because it codified one version of a song as the "official" version, when, in reality, he rarely played them the same way twice. So Arturo needs to be accepting of all commentary on his piece, regardless of whether that commentary is paid for, is statuary, or is in written form.)

You can perform music all the time, each of them - different from another. You can't place another bull at another New York City's corner. It's easier to sell fanfiction as work of its own.

Honestly, you can't sell fanfic. It's illegal. (Copyright infringement.)
