Banksy on advertising

Nice little rant on the advertising biz from Banksy.

Rumour has it he's a graphic designer by trade.

So it could be a case of the pot calling the kettle.

Regardless of that he makes a fair point.

Interesting thing is the trademarks, copyright and intellectual property he talks about don't belong to agencies.

Nor do they belong to the creative people who originated the ideas.

No. They belong to the brands and the companies that own them.

Which means the person who coined Have a break, have a Kit Kat back in the sixties has never ever received any royalties.

Now that's a real problem in my eyes!

Thanx to Mona for the pic
