What is Copyright and Licensing?

Copyright and Commercial Licensing for Businesses. What is not okay.  February 13, 2013 – 03:46 pm

Hello again….. It’s been a stressful past couple of weeks as my back had gone out again and we are remodeling the studio, but now I’m back to normal activities – one more time of "going out" and I’m going for the cortisone injection

Okay, so…. I thoroughly admit to being emotional, so this hits me at a bad time.   There are a few images of my daughter, Erynn, with horses that have gone viral for years.  Unfortunately, they started to go viral before I was putting proper watermarks on my images.  They are quite a few years old.   Some are forwarded and shared with awful cheesy quotes on them, etc.  *sigh*  Not a lot I can do about that.   Rest assured, these images are copyright protected of course.

Well, I hadn’t seen the one image of Erynn sitting on a fence for a while, so I did a reverse search on google images.   Up pops an Etsy seller using my image.  Was she selling my image?   At first, I thought so, then realized she was not selling my image, but using my image to sell her card designs.  Is that legal?   No, it is not.

Quotations from the Freedom Crowd

'I never intend to adjust myself to the madness of militarism.'
- Martin Luther King Jr.
'However sugarcoated and ambiguous, every form of authoritarianism must start with a belief in some group's greater right to power, whether that right is justified by sex, race, class, religion, or all four. However far it may expand, the progression inevitably rests on unequal power and airtight...iners, the weavers, the chemists, the carvers, the dyers, the designers, the machinists, where were the hands, the people who made?

Interview with Chomsky from India

Chomsky In First Person
In this exclusive interview, Noam Chomsky speaks to V.K. Ramachandran about the 'new war against terrorism', imperialism, the media and the role of intellectuals.
November 15, 2001: there is a break in the North East monsoon, and it is a clear, cool day in Thekkady. Noam Chomsky is on the second day of his first holiday in many years, a five-day break from pu...tle illegitimate authority and expand the domains of freedom and justice? The task, then, is not to 'speak truth' to the king, or even to the king's subjects, but to learn from them, to contribute what we can, and to participate with them in common struggle for values we discover and uphold. It seems to me that those are the directions in which responsibilities of intellectuals should be sought.

Nowhere is rollback more evident than in U.S. policy toward the Third World. Third World rollback has come to be named the Reagan Doctrine.
