Below is the link to an interesting article from TIME magazine written by Susan Scafidi, "a professor at Fordham Law School, founder of the nonprofit Fashion Law Institute, and the author of Who Owns Culture? Appropriation and Authenticity in American Law"

It's about the fine line between inspiration and appropriation, taking as its jumping off point the recent Pharell faux pas.
