I understand that big companies stealing work off the web or plagiarizing other people’s work hasn’t been something new, I’m sure plenty of artists have been the similar position and been told “you shouldn’t share works on the internet cause then people can take it”
With that, I reacted with: Do you take food from a store just because it’s there?
Robbery is robbery… and when you dismiss people for taking other people’s work you’re saying it’s okay.
While the internet has definitely given us infinite possibilities of instant sharing and connecting, it definitely has it’s downside, which is this, artworks being stolen from artists to use freely.
I’m sure that whatever I’ve thought or felt has been expressed before, so I won’t continue to go on a lengthy rant.
