  1. Copyright should be unnecessary.
    In practice … eh. I run a couple of online POD stores, one on Zazzle, one on Redbubble. They feature my original illustrations and designs. There are quite a few stores that feature old public domain images. I’m cool with that. I’m not cool with the many, many other stores that feature images that are straight up stolen from current, living artists.
    I would prefer that no one make money off my work without sharing it with me.
    Once I’m dead, I don’t care what happens to my art and stories.
    I have a problem with parasitic middlemen who, having created nothing, bleed the creative work of others.


    • I agree with you 100% on this one.
      Copyright should protect the creators, not the middlemen, but it is usually the middlemen that act as enforcers on some pretty dubious copyright issues.
