Okay, I’m not a genius, but I am a genius. I’m also a liar so I don’t know how true that last sentence was, but I’m also a robot, so….you decide.
Great start, carry on.
So the other day I got a public comment on a random picture I posted for one of my Pictures of Win series. Posted below:
Now, I was a history major in college, so I understand the concept of plagiarism, but does that apply here?
I’m genuinely asking. The comic I posted not only had the author’s name and a website link on the photo, I also featured it in things I thought were funny. That’s promotion, right?
Or is this like one of those things where you buy the clothes that promote the brand of clothes that you just paid money to wear and promote? Dang clothing, you’re smart.
No, I didn’t get this dude’s permission. I Googled funny birthday pictures, and thought it was ok.
Maybe this sounds complainy, but guess what, complainy isn’t a word. No, I don’t care, just thought it was something. Not sure of the something, but it was.
I contemplated a few snarky replies, but in the end, I went with “wow”. Not offense, just…reactionary?
