COPYLEFT / CREATIVE COMMONS

RECENTLY I CHANGED MY VIEWS ABOUT COPYRIGHT, LARGELY DUE TO THE PERSUASIVE AND INTELLIGENT ARGUMENTS OF THE ARTIST GWENN SEEMEL.

SOUL FOOD 7 ZENI AGREE WITH THE COPYLEFT MOVEMENT, WHICH IS THAT COPYRIGHT HAS GONE TOO FAR AND HAS STIFLED AND FRIGHTENED FOLKS FROM INSPIRATION, DISCUSSION, AND INNOVATION, ALL THINGS WHICH ART SHOULD STIMULATE. I NOTICE THAT ARTISTS WHO USE A PHOTOGRAPH FOR INSPIRATION ON A DRAWING NOW MUST GIVE THE PHOTOGRAPHER A NOD OR HAVE TO PAY TO BE INSPIRED BY THEIR IMAGERY. AS A FORMER ARCHITECT, I THINK THAT WITH THAT LOGIC, THE PHOTOGRAPHERS SHOULD HAVE TO CREDIT AND PAY ALL THE ARCHITECTS AND BUILDERS IF THEY HAPPEN TO TAKE A PICTURE OF THEIR BUILDINGS, AND SO IT GOES, DOWN THE LINE.

IT IS NICE, OF COURSE, TO GIVE CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE, IF YOU ARE MOVED, OR TO DONATE (AND I DO WHEN SO MOVED) AS ALL ARTISTS NEED TO MAKE MONEY TO LIVE AND CREATE MORE ART. AND, I DON'T WANT TO STOP A YOUNG ARTIST FROM BEING INSPIRED! ALL WORK IS DERIVATIVE! THERE IS NOTHING NEW, JUST WONDERFUL NEW HEARTS AND MINDS AND VIBRATIONS INSPIRED IN THEIR OWN WAYS TO BRING THEIR VERSIONS OF HORSES, BUILDINGS, HEARTS, ET ALL TO THE WORLD.
