Apple, Saw, and Sorry: dramarising Dear artists.. No, Fm not going to link back to your page. I edited out your ugly signature too I paid for the art. It is mine. Don't worry, this does not mean I take credit for drawing it. When people ask if I drew it, I say "Nope." When people ask who did, I say, "Sorry, I don't remember. Just because I bought your art does not mean our profiles have to be linked forever. It's the same if I buy an apple from the grocer. I don't have to keep the sticker on it or tell people where it came from. I'm not a walking advertisement for your shop. If you want credit so badly,then I should get a cut of your tuture profmts for my part in the advertising I know I'm probably going to get the wrath of whiny, entitled artists for this, but I don't care. I won't be making a shrine around their art dedicated to them. I paid for a service, and now we should go our our separate ways! littleliongod: hkluterman: toyourliking: I saw this post on my dash (with commentary, dw) and there was one thing that I didn’t see addressed in the comment chain that I really feel needs to be Once an artist creates a work, they own the copyright None of this “I paid for the art. It is mine.” bullshit, unless the artist actually sells you the copyright (something which has to be stated and never assumed, and something you would have to pay extra for) you can not claim ownership over the piece, even if you paid for it. And yes, this means you can not alter the work in any way, you can not use it for banners/advertisements/etc., you can not print it, you can not sell copies unless agreed upon with the artist and artists are also protected under moral rights meaning that the artist has the right of attribution (the right to be identified and named as the creator of their work), the right against false attribution, and the right of integrity. (Source) so fuck off with your “I paid for the art. It is mine.” crap, it doesn’t stick legally Reblogging for important information. Artists, you have legal rights to your work by default. Don’t let your clients bully you. Buying art is not buying the rights to the art. You CAN sell the rights to art, but I’m sorry to say,op,  it involves a signed agreement from the artist to waive all rights. It also adds another zero to your price tag. As much as op wants to think commissioning art is like buying a bowl at the dollar store and prying the ugly flower off the side, the world isn’t quite that fluffy in your favor.

Community, Facts, and Hillary Clinton: Mikel Jollett @Mikel_Jollett Number of people who go bankrupt every year bc of medical bills: Britain: 0 France:O Japan: 0 Germany: 0 Canada: 0 USA: 643,000 liberalsarecool:Talk about obstruction. What if Republicans really cared about health care. During my stint with my economics degree I did research on homelessness. A lot of temporary homelessness is caused by something economist call ‘income shocks”, in other words unforeseen costs that are incurred that break your bank so to speak.  57% of Americans cant even afford an unexpected price tag of $500 and often non-chronic homelessness is caused by simply not being able to afford a car accident or a medical expense or a relatively small expense that wasn’t planned for. The reason why I mention this and mention homelessness is because it is incredibly sad that in this country, you can literally die on the streets if you can’t afford a medical bill, yet our neighbors in Canada treat their citizens with cancer, auto immune disorders, MS, Aids/HIV etc. virtually for free. Another thing that infuriates me is that even Democrats and their leadership and even Hillary Clinton who ran last year as a “progressive” called Universal Healthcare and Bernie’s single payer plan “pie in the sky” despite the fact that these plans work, are less expensive, and give better health outcomes than our system- also despite the fact that the majority of Americans and the majority of Democrats want universal healthcare.  We need to fight for Universal Healthcare now and until we get it. People’s lives and purses depend on it. The tumblr community should do more to push this. THIS  is a major social justice issue and one that can be easily won since the facts, science, and economics or on our side.  We need this, and we need it now.
