"It's yours to take, re-arrange and re-use"

"It's yours to take, re-arrange and re-use" - Wall and Piece by Banksy

These words could be talking about taking photographs.

Yes, but it's that what is usually forbidden... And not so many seem to care... And even less explicitly publish their image under a Creative Commons license.

Mary Ann, not to forget "re-take" ;-) In fact, I was thinking more about the tools behind the window glas. They haven't been touched for decades.

Markus, this is banksy's definition of brandalism:

"Any advertisement in public space that gives you no choice whether you see it or not is yours. It belongs to you. It's yours to take, rearrange and re-use. Asking for permission is like asking to keep a rock someone just threw at your head."
