On Plagrism, Stolen Artworks and Sharing Your Work On The Internet

rocketrictic:

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.

One of my favorite things about Wonder Woman, truly, is that she isn’t some isolated solo bad ass. 

There is no brooding, Bat Man like “loner” streak in her. She has no Supermany “Fortress of Solitude.” No, while Diana may sometimes be separated from her fellow Amazons, she never shuns them in self inflicted monkery. 

Rather, spectacularly, Diana revels in her sisterhoods. Whether with her fellow Amazons, or with other heroes, or with her human friends, like Candy. Wonder Woman’s enduring sense of Camaraderie, of fellowship, of solidarity and sisterhood is truly noble, and it’s one of  my favorite things about her.

She’s not concerned with being better than other women. She is not jealous of other women’s successes and strengths. She has no deep broody desire to prove herself worthy. She is filled to the brim with self confidence and  EAGER to embrace other women as her sisters. 

Self Confidant, dedicated to justice, and embracing sisterhood with all other women: All feminists should aspire to be as wondrous as Wonder Woman.
