Against Copyright? Why?

“Why do people do it? Because they have no fear of reprisal. Sure, some of them pay me after they are confronted or take the image down, but why should I have to find them and confront them? I guess it shouldn’t be so surprising since modern journalists call aggregation “journalism,” when really it’s just slapping your name on someone else’s work and sometimes adding a snarky couple of sentences. People say that they will link to my site. Oh, really? That’s great, but I prefer cash.”
