what a time to be alive.
please give me this and I will be endlessly amused
Sweet mystery of life, at last I’ve found you
Anonymous asked: I’ve got to agree. You didn’t create these images, you scanned them. You don’t own them. Vogue has a right to complain about you. You have no grounds to complain about Tumblr users.
Actually Vogue and other publications do not own the rights to any of the advertisements found in their magazines now or in the past. Per copyright law the advertising images that I use in my blog are public domain. The images that are under active copyright such as Vogue or others I follow the “Fair Use Act”. Vogue has no complaint with me I know this because I have spoken with the head of the copyright department at Conde Nast. I take archiving and what I do very seriously and have learned a great deal about copyright and usage. That isn’t really the issue here the point is in tumblr users should re-blog not re-post.
This was a pretty major reason (among many others) why I got tired of my videogame blog - anytime something caught fire, some rancid, keyboard-fondling fucksocket with 5 times the follows I had would repost it and swim naked in the notes.
Trouble was is that since I was mainly just news and shit, I felt that I had zero domain over what I posted - after all, it was mostly just gossip and press releases. Very frustrating, but whatevuh. For some people, tumblr is life; mine is being a creep and annoying people.
On the other, the situation is far more readable when a person showcases their own property (be it a personal item, or some of their craft like a gif or a sketch) just to get reposted and if you’re that person, you’re that purse of pusillanimous ballsnot then you haven’t excuse uno for doing. Everyone already knows who that content belongs to, so who the hell are you going to convince? And why would you dig such a shit-laden trench for yourself to lie in, anyway?
What’s the fucking point? What does it even do for a person that does that crap?
Good on you, MVV. I were you, I’d turn the fucker over to the dogs but then again, I never saw much advantage in playing fair.
