birdsite: Intellectual Property is Theft
Intellectual Property is Theft. There are numerous examples of corporations just stealing from individuals or smaller companies, both in tech and in art with the excuse of "just be glad you are getting some exposure".
@GI_Jack This is a fun substitution game:
"Licenses don't apply when code is used as data"
"Copyright doesn't apply when code is used as data"
"Copyright doesn't apply when movies are used as data"
I'm still trying to reconcile how digital data can be used as anything other than digital data, though.
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
