    That’s always been the nature of finger pointing. 

  3. The bitterly delicious dessert: they took it down rather than license the image.

      Arguably, the “wasn’t me, it was the cut-price content monkey who I contracted out!” defense also suggests a… deep and abiding… respect for the labor of the ‘content creators’.

    “Our collective goal is not to sue everybody…”

    Well, that’s nice.

    They all know it’s wrong and they’re still doing!

    That “sense of entitlement” is so infectious it even contaminated these brave warriors as they fought against it. Damn yon, sense of entitlement!!!

    Just, um, incidentally, ‘Canipre’ may be Canadian; but .com is a TLD administered under the jurisdiction of the United States. It would be a… pity…. if the DMCA were to become involved.

    I have no sympathy for the entertainment industry. None. Some companies (Apple, Amazon) have adapted to the internet. Others haven’t. Those that haven’t will die off. That’s it. I’m not gonna feel guilty about it, why should I? The entertainment industry has spent the past 15 years since Napster complaining in the news and financially ruining the lives of private citizens. You don’t win hearts and minds by suing grandmas, teenagers, single moms, and dead people. You don’t win them by issuing illegal takedown notices on content you DON’T OWN. You certainly don’t win them hypocritically stealing artwork for your website and not doing your due diligence. Face it, Canipre, you have already lost. We are immune to your message of guilt, because we know that the people you work for don’t feel one iota of guilt over the people and families they have destroyed in their quest for a slightly more inflated bottom line.

    Its only a crime when you little people do it, not when we do it…

    Maybe if you wanted to change the world you’d make sure you were following the rules first.

    “but to change the sense of entitlement” A lofty goal! Not just for governments anymore!

    I only wish the photographers would have given these scumbags a little taste of their own medicine – like takedown notices or a nice lawsuit.

    Ignorance is usually not an excuse when the proles are caught “stealing” intellectual property, so why should this douche nozzle get off scot-free?
