    Metalsmith BenchTalk: artist Harriete Estel Berman on copycats & artistic piracy

    in Art

    My guest on Thursday, March 27th at 3 p.m. PDT on MetalSmith BenchTalk will be artist Harriete Estel Berman, who joins us to discuss the critical topic of copycats and artistic piracy in the arts and craft communities.


    About: The craft community is under assault by copycat thieves in the “Age of the Internet.” BAD and UGLY behaviors proliferate within the craft community. International pirates steal images and retail giants raid the craft marketplace for ideas. Naïve and enthusiasm cloak unethical behavior with "I love your work and want to make one for myself.” Do you recognize the problems? Recognize the behavior? Understand Fair Use? Need recommendations? Join this important and topical conversation with Jay Whaley and Harriete Estel Berman.

    Our hot topics include:



    How to establish value for your artwork;
    How exactly does the secondary market work;
    Facts about collecting metalwork within an academic setting or guild;

    World Call In

    in Energy

    Dennis, Jeff and Susan discuss the probability that there is Life, beyond Earth, in the Universe.


    How smart were we 2,000 years ago? Or 4,000 years Before Christ (B.C.)? Yes, we’ve come a LONG way in just the last 200 years, when we were just riding horses, to today, when we have cars, airplanes, and spaceships.


    Now, just think how long our universe existed. It started, with the Big Bang, about 14 billion years ago. Now compare that number to how young human beings are on our planet, the Earth.


    Astronomer Bob Berman confirmed that our Milky Way Galaxy contains 400 billion stars, including our own star, the Sun. NASA is now able to detect the other planets, like this planet Earth, revolving around those other stars.


    Furthermore, our Milky Way Galaxy is one of a hundred billion galaxies.


    Where does the TRUTH lie ? The laws of probability suggest there is Life, beyond Earth, in the Universe. 
    Just imagine a planet way out there with creatures living there MUCH longer than we've controlled this planet.  Instead of 6,000 years evolving on our planet, imagine residents of older planets over the last 14 billion years.  They could have gone WAY beyond planes & spaceships like ours.  They could have even visited our planet thousands of years ago.  Imagine if they were hoping to move to a better planet had they hurt their own planet with problems like climate change or global warming.


    They could have landed on our planet thousands of years ago hoping to relocate here but our atmosphere may have been much different than their's.  If we didn't have the right amount of nitrogen, helium, or oxygen for them, they couldn't take off their spacesuits and breath our air.  Of course, before they went back up into space, they could have been Godly enough to bring our planet beyond homo erectis (apes, chimpanzees, orangutans, etc.) to homo sapians (we the people).
