Re: [Yasmin_discussions] ARTISTS AS INVENTORS ON YASMIN ---Moderator's Introduction

Thanks for the helpful response Robert and look forward to the discussion

With respect to design, perhaps it will be useful to discuss this at some
stage responding to the initial question:

4. How is an art-related invention different from an invention that is not
tied to the conventions of art? How is an art-related invention
different from invention in other fields?

As the month progresses a topic that will be of interest to me would to see
if the conversion or integration of what you are calling art-related
inventions into systems of law have involved the redefinition of the work as
a piece of design (as of course art is constrained by copyright not
patenting or design/trademarks). So the question would at what point does
the shift in terminology also change the nature of the work?
all best
