Bulgaria: Bulgaria's Musicians Say Naked No to Intellectual Robbery Famous Bulgarian actress Tsvetana Maneva poses in front of her poster at the exhibition's opening on Thursday. Photo by Nadya Kotseva (Sofia Photo Agency)

Famous Bulgarian artists have taken off some of their clothes for a photo exhibition in protest against intellectual piracy opened Thursday by Culture Minister Stefan Danailov.

The photos display 29 Bulgarian artists, half-naked and with a warning notice across the chest saying "Piracy Robs".

The first stage of the initiative to fight with piracy found expression in all media. The second stage is about to be launched soon.

The campaign billboards have been decorating Bulgarian major cities' streets for months. The first celebrities who were seen on the posters were mainly artists and architects.

This was considered an awkward start because many didn't see the point in architects and painters protesting against intellectual robbery because Bulgaria's music industry is the one that is most affected by piracy.
