Chutzpah

So I just found out that, on Amazon, if you search for “robertlovespi,” you’ll find an enlarged image of a meme I made, and blogged, sold as a laminated poster. If you choose to buy it, that’s fine with me, but I won’t get any of the money, for this poster-project was not my idea. Here’s a screenshot of the item listing. Someone took my blog’s Copyright-Free Notice, and ran with it!

If you’d like to see the original blog-post (for free!), here it is, all the way from mid-2014: https://robertlovespi.net/2014/05/03/galileo-galilei-on-the-language-of-the-universe/.

  1. Congratulations! All of your graphics creations are beautiful enough to be posters

  2. Dear Robert, you don’t know me but I am a huge fan of your work, and an enthusiastic fellow geometer, amongst other things I am better known for such as architecture and writing (as you’ll see if you visit my website below.) I am so sorry to see that someone has taken it upon themselves to rip off your wonderful meme for their own profit. Chutzpah indeed! Have you let Amazon know that they are not the owners of the image? I suspect they would take it down if you were to tell them.

    Your making this the subject of your latest blog though has brought this wonderful quote to my attention, and the attention of many others, and perhaps that is the larger value of this transgression. Not only do I heartily agree with Galileo’s words, but it has also given me the impetus to write and thank you personally for all that you share. Your 3D visualizations and associated writings are of enormous value. Spectacular work!

    With warmest regards,
