Different Definitions

While Croatian judiciary apparently considers 11 Minutes That Shook The World as the art worthy of copyright protection, other forms of expressions aren't greeted with same amount of enthusiasm.
Few days ago Split witnessed spectacular opening of Moulin Rouge, strip joint that used to be known as American Go Go Club. But the opening was marred by labour inspection raid. As a result, 8 exotic dancers – Slovakian citizens - were brought towards magistrate because they lacked work permit. They tried to defend themselves by claiming that they were artists and, as such, didn't recquire work permits. But magistrate apparently didn't consider "exotic dance" to be art and had all eight of them fined and deported from Croatia.
