We should probably take into account of the two different definitions of culture as described by Herbert Read. There is on one hand culture defined as the way people live. The way a people talk, cook, dress, make brooms and pots. And then there is the definition of culture as commodity where "culture" is a thing to be owned, bough, sold and consumed. When we talk about cultural appropriation we probably mean to say appropriation of "culture" as in a form of intellectual property. That is to say that the damage being done is not necessarily due to misrepresentation but due to the enclosure of culture.

Or I'm just typing out of my ass, I guess we'll never know :P
