I know that you can't copyright a quote, but I have a question about using a quote in a design.
Do you consider the content of a large piece of text part of a mural design? For example:
The above text was copied and submitted for a mural design competition. There is nothing to the new design besides the words, and a repeating grid pattern in two colors. Would you consider that a "unique" design, despite the fact that the idea and text were copied from another mural?
