This will be a long rant about my personal thoughts that were brought up due to the recent drama between SongjiKyo and Zen-kun.
Note that these are my own opinions about this, and if you're only going to comment to add fuel to the hate that has been brought up because of this absurd situation, just don't waste your time.
Since always, we see posts on the internet about artists trying to stand up for themselves, explain their copyright policies and try and protect their creations from thieves, tracers and so on.
And since always, there are those who feel entitled to step over an artist's rules with claims such as:
"if its on the internet, I have the rights to use it."
"credits to 'whoever' drew this"
"it's just a drawing, it's not important"
"how DARE you try to make money with some drawings? ANYONE can do that!"
and worst of all:
"Don't post your drawings if you don't want people to use them. It's YOUR fault."
This had always been in the back of my mind as something simply hateful, sad
