Walmart Selling Occupy Wall Street Posters Online

Yet another illustration of how reproducibility rips images from their original context and makes them available for any use whatsoever. Walmart is selling Occupy Wall Street posters online. 

"As an OWS Organizer, I am disturbed but not shocked that Walmart would seek to commodify and corporatize products of an anti corporate movement" said Yoni Miller, a veteran of the Zucotti Square protests that caught the world's attention.

"They also recognize, the immense popularity of Occupy's narrative, so rather than explicitly oppose it, they're seeking to historicize and mythologize the concept of occupations and income inequality."

As of this writing, the posters are sold out.
