So you’re an artist or a graphic designer. You create amazing images that capture the human experience. You may even help create websites, logos and other art for everyone from entrepreneurs to school football teams. You also like to be paid for your work, but sometimes you worry the agreement between you and your client over who owns what is unclear. Other times you find that someone takes your work and puts it up on the internet without your permission or any sort of payment. This gets you really mad… but you’re not entirely sure what to do about it.
You might even be a remix artist, taking existing content and putting together something completely new and different. Or at least you think it’s new and different, but the DMCA takedown notice in your in-box seems to say otherwise. And you’re not entirely sure what to do with that takedown notice.
You also may wonder if there is any content online you could use without the need to pay a fee, hire a lawyer, or fear a copyright takedown. Content you would only need to attribute and say where you got it from, now that would make your life so much easier.
