Knocked It Out of the County Where The Park Resides

Some of you wondered what I was referring to in my intentionally vague post the other day.  Linoge has put together a very well researched explanation. I highly recommend you take the time to read it.

I have absolutely no problem with anyone making some cash from their work. I do it myself.  Those ads on the side?  Not free. Yes, the more eyes that land here, the more wheelbarrows of sweet blogging cash roll in*. Occasionally, I’ll even land a sponsor for a specific post. I have no problem with anyone doing that. I know I have bills to pay, some of which keep this little empire of ones and zeros running.  That income helps offset those expenses and maybe a bit for my time.

What I do have a problem with is making the profit from someone else’s work and depriving them the credit/compensation for it. That’s stealing, plain and simple.  People invest their time and talent into the photographs and content put out there on the web. That should be respected.

*very tiny wheelbarrows.  Blink and you’ll miss them.  There’s a reason I’ve still got a day job.

  1. Hey, if you are going to do something, you might as well do it right. I am honestly a little surprised we got it done as quickly as we did.

    And, yeah, likewise, I have absolutely no problems with people being mercenary – Lord knows I am from time to time – but I am only selling myself, not other people against their will or without their knowledge.

    Thanks for the link!

  2. Stopped reading his site quite a while back; just too much “I’ll use your stuff, and then call you names if you say anything about it” crap.

    ‘Too much’ as in not a slip, or an occasional ‘I forgot to mention’, but deliberate use of other peoples’ stuff. Throw in the other crap, and I have no need to spend time over there
