“We really don’t own our stuff anymore (at least not fully); the manufacturers do. Because modifying modern objects requires access to information: code, service manuals, error codes, and diagnostic tools. Modern cars are part horsepower, part high-powered computer. Microwave ovens are a combination of plastic and microcode. Silicon permeates and powers almost everything we own. This is a property rights issue, and current copyright law gets it backwards, turning regular people — like students, researchers, and small business owners — into criminals.”—
Current congressional debates about the legality of unlocking cell phones are missing the larger point – Wired’s Kyle Wiens argues we should be allowed to unlock everything we own.

What is "Art Theft"? Mirre shares her thoughts
Many people, especially on dA, have this idea that if one artist shows any signs of similar elements from one of their art idols, it’s considered “art theft”.
Sorry but copying for example a pose, or happen to draw eyes the same way, or have an OC with the same color scheme is NOT ART THEFT.
I’m just gonna explain with examples of what is and what is not art theft:
This is NOT art theft.
“Why? Sources claim that yuumei traced from the pic to the left!”
Whenever it’s traced or not doesn’t matter. The technique used never matters as long as the final result is original enough on it’s own. Yuumei changed a lot in the final result here. Yes the color scheme in the backgrounds are similar, but you cannot claim copyright on a color scheme.
Now THIS is art theft. Basically 98% of ALL of these kind of pokéball-art use copyright material without permission. DO NOT SUPPORT THIS.
“Why? The artist credited the stock artist in the description!”
The problem with this is that the so called “stock” IS NOT STOCK AT ALL.
The stock artist they referred to is breaking copyright law by taking an artists artwork without written permission, remove the background and make it a transparent “png”.
These kind of traps are called “renders” and is a HUGE problem on deviantart. the render category is made for stock material that have a transparent background.
So ppl take coprighted artwork, both from tv-shows to freelancing artists, make the backround transparent and then upload it as a “stock”:
This is copyright violation in it’s glory. And the mods don’t do anything to this issue apparently. Which makes ppl believe it’s okay to make stocks out of other ppl’s art. This isn’t tracing, this is straight on using 90% of the original artwork and fool people to believe it’s okay to use it.
So can people please stop flaming the wrong artists for once.

I am NOT FUCKING HAPPY.
Yahoo is fucking deleting blogs with NO PRIOR NOTICE?
This is a bag of dicks. Fuck. Expletives. Ugh.
What’s going to happen the vintage blogs? The people who post excellent content, always cite photographer and sources - are we infringing copyright too? Will we be deleted? I have spent FAR too long building up this blog to let some bullshit company who thinks we have no right to enjoy anything we didn’t personally create or photograph delete it.
I didn’t take all those photos of Marilyn. Obviously. But I bought the books, I scoured the web for photos, I carefully sourced them, cited the photographers, edited them and made them just that bit different. Is this not acceptable? Is this really what blogging is coming to? Are we not allowed to share material that could otherwise be lost?
This is ridiculous.
I'm going to write a book
And call it “Texts I Never Sent: A Journey to Not be ‘That Girl’”
It will be a compilation of texts I’ve typed out and never managed to click send on because despite the well-deserved sentiment (anger, sadness, fear, heartbreak) I refused to be “that girl.”
Chapters will include “come over,” “really? You’re not going to answer my text?,” “stop being an asshole,” “I miss you and think about you a lot” and more.

5 Famous Online Copyright Crusaders Who Are Total Hypocrites
Shortly after the Vice.com story broke, the congressman’s team had his website taken down, just like a dirty, copyright-infringing criminal would deserve, according to Smith’s own proposed legislation.
