"It's Better than 'Barf Bag'..."

I was assigned to whip up a poster for my job, encouraging patrons to copyright their work (and to respect everything else that has been copyrighted).

I didn't always feel so strongly about this kinda stuff (copyrights, not cavemen)... but then my wife started recording music (check it out here) and now I realize how important it is to respect someone else's livelihood. Lots of people hearken to "thou shalt not steal," right? Well, taking something that isn't meant to be free is stealing.

Sorry to get all preachy on you. To make up for it, here's a picture of what I would look like if I were a rodeo princess (which I'm not).

I totally agree Aaron! It completely changed the way I consume media to recognize that people could just as easily be stealing MY art without asking or thinking twice about it. I would be livid if I ever found out. And since...I figure we're going to have meet just about everyone who affected our lives (including the producers of our favorite media)in the afterlife, and I never want to have to explain to them why I felt justified in stealing their work.
Plus it destroys the industry of whatever you're taking from - basic supply and demand.
Sorry to be long-winded. I support, though. Good to know you do too. :)
