Hi There !

This discussion is not in my field of expertise, so I will
just throw some questions and remarks :

- what is the difference between creation and creativity ?

But you also mentionned that it was different in the US and
the UK. It is also different in France.... and probably
elsewhere ... The very notions of copyright and patents are
not exactly the same in different countries. What does it
mean regarding this idea of artists as inventors ?

Well ... no ....
Art as making something new is a recent vision.
Many, many, many artworks have nothing to do with "neweness"
... and a lot with the mastering of doing something within
a genre or a style or an aesthetics.
