Richard DeDomenici gives a PowerPoint presentation on various examples of plagiarism drawn mainly from the pop music industry, television and the print media. In all of these activities he can draw on personal examples where he feels his ideas have been adopted but he has not received due recognition.

 He widens his lecture style out to exemplify his ideas as an experimental expression artist and again he appears to have had an idea appropriated, this time by the advertising industry, without him receiving any kind of recognition. There is no doubt in our culture we are bombarded with so much information that pure originality is hard to achieve but he does make a good case for intellectual copyright.

Interesting and amusing as his talk and visual examples may be, I would question whether this is an hour of Theatre. To me, it is clearly not and it should be classified as a Fringe Event?
