Follow the link below to an article on the dark side of posting art on social media by San Diego photographer Paul Koester.
There is always someone (or a group of people) behind the content on any platform and it is always wrong to copy it and use it for commercial purposes or worse, claiming ownership, when it is clearly someone else’s work. It is unfortunate that artists still have to deal with copyright issues. Educating companies, and the public at large, that things are not free is the key.
This is a great first-person narrative and well worth the read.
