Intellectual Property Blindness

People are oddly blind to intellectual property rights even when they ought not to be. Software developers downloading music and movies, and so on.

Today I ran across a bit by a photographer who is one of those Z-list senior session types who would be appalled at the idea of shooting for free. She's an obnoxious bitch.

And today she's ever so pleased to have her words and pictures on petapixel (a terrible click bait web site aimed at photographers).


It is vitally important to protect IP rights in my domain, but IP in your domain, eh, who cares.

If you're one of those photographers who's big on My Copyright (I am not), then at least try to be consistent. Intellectual property rights aren't just for you. They're either for everyone, or no-one.
