Susan Roux 's comment on Making a Mockery of Fair Use and Creative Freedom: Artist Shepard Fairey pleads guilty to criminal contempt over fake evidence

I have been nicknamed the art police for exposing artists who steal the works of others, only to sell it as their own. It turns out, I have zero tolerance for this type of behavior. After all we call ourselves artists. The very nature of an artist is to create, not pirate.

I posted about a fellow blogging artist who was doing just that. Here is the link to that post. The comments are a testament to how artists really feel about this ongoing situation.

Thank you for posting this information. Artists have a much larger voice than ever before with the help of the internet. If we speak loud enough as one, perhaps we can get this type of copying to stop.
