Are you thinking critically about your intent or are you stealing from the internet?

Pat’s talk explores how small businesses and independent artists deal with an environment that feels incredibly stacked against them. With the speed of our communications tools, the context of every creative person’s work is often stripped instantly, and their ownership of it erased. Have you thought lately about how you’re using stuff you find on the internet?
