Copyright infringement is everywhere. A few years back, John Tehranian wrote a paper and then a book about just how much copyright infringement happens incidentally on a daily basis. The conclusion, from a back of the envelope estimate, is that an average person is likely liable for $4.544 billion in incidental infringement in a normal year. And that's not for sharing music and movies and what not, but just doing the normal everyday things you do.

The Western art world's hegemony is on its last legs, or at least so it would seem according to a recent report showing the extent of the Chinese art market's fantastic boom.
