Posted by Joe Edit | Thu Mar 29th 2007 2:29 a.m.

Posted March 29, 2007.
Internet and New Media Star Cory Arcangel was arrested by the FBI today. The exact charges are now on public record. Apparently Arcangel had graduated from stealing code to stealing the work of living artists. It all began after his talk at Columbia in 2004.
see pix of the arrest and the FBI transcript.

    He can't have been there long, they haven't had time to Photoshop a decent
    arrest photo of him yet.

    yup. i didn't look at the webpage. given we have had rhizomers and
    other nyc netactivists arrested before, i didn't look at it as a hoax.

    I am QUITE sure that these photos or genuine, and stand by all our sources. Our legal department is more than adequate.
    It's insulting to think that we would perpetrate a hoax or otherwise skew data to meet out anything but the pure and honest goals of our business plan.
    We have been informed that 25 of Cory's friends all chipped in to free him from incarceration (2 bucks a pop). He now awaits vindication or conviction pending the results of his up-coming trial.
    As an aside, we have been informed by the defendants defence that he is planning to steal the entire Rhizome Artbase and claim all the contents as his own ("steal modify, publish", and aesthetic of means).
    After all, he is *Cory Arcangel* to paraphrase T. Whid.

    Genuine news, genuine Barthesian //fait divers// (an artist arrested stealling
    art works) with the required commentary and repercution. Nice work.
