Maybe “Asking Permission” Means Something Different In Romania?

Nagy’s illicit version of Whetzel’s work

“Dude, I ASKED FOR PERMISSION, you acted like a prick! Hope you will be able to sell your work to other like you did to me. Stop making a big fuss about it! What are you, twelve? You can’t afford a legal agent, let alone a legal team and stop act like Jackson Pollock. No one has ever heard of you. If anything else, I was doing you a favor! F off!” [Whetzelnews]

When someone identifying herself as “Ana-Maria Nagy” contacted artist Chris Whetzel asking to use a (slightly altered) version of a poster he created for a Romanian film fest, Whetzel said “no.” But, apparently, no did not mean no to Nagy.
