An artwork which is suitable for being represented in a digital format, as information, can be identically duplicated in unlimited numbers and shared on P2P networks on the Internet by the artist without the intermediation of the culture industry. If this work of art is also suitable for being experienced independent of space and time and without the help of any particular
sophisticated apparatus, it can communicate the ideas of the artist to everyone who has basic tools for and knowledge of using the Internet.

This study suggests and introduces the concept of “digitiple” as a model for the construction and distribution of such an artwork as a “digital multiple” to be shared on P2P networks as a copyleft “digital gift”. “Digitiple” is just one example of many potential political uses of information technologies in contemporary art.
