Art theft vs. Sharing and basic copyright

mikikoponczeck:

Hey everyone,

Even though the issue with the art thieves is not yet resolved, I got a few messages that made me think this post might be useful/necessary for all you artists out there. It’s just a short summary but hopefully it will clear up some questions.

What’s copyrighted on the internet?

"The devil can cite scripture for his purpose."
William Shakespeare (Antonio), The Merchant of Venice (via greatliteraryquotations)
"Believe only half of what you see and nothing that you hear."
Edgar Allan Poe (via words-and-coffee)

A Message to All Boys:

Wearing eyeliner doesn’t make you “girly” or “gay” a lot of girls actually find it attractive. If you wanna put concealer on that pimple go ahead. It doesn’t make you less of a man. Makeup is not intrinsically feminine. Don’t let society’s screwed up gender roles stop you from expressing yourself.
