A rejection of copyright, copyleft, as originated by Richard Stallman and the GPL protect the freedoms of use and modification,​ frequently including a viral clause, meaning any work that utilizes work under the licence, also must be covered under the licence. While this "viral clause"​ has been criticized in software for lack of practicality in business [citation needed], it works considerably better for art. Because most commercial art is not based on utilizing sections of prior works (outside of sampling which is already in shaky legal territory, and is seldom planned for in the creation of the original), the lack of compatibility between copyleft art and the business world causes less conflict for creators.((1 [[http://​works.bepress.com/​cgi/​viewcontent.cgi?​article=1035&​context=severine_dusollier]], //Columbia Journal of Law and the Arts//. January 2003))+Copyleft, a term that originated with respect to software, also has meaning in the realm of art.
