Thievery in its’ truest form, we’ve seen them all in movies and what~not. Sometimes even happening in front of our eyes and sometimes, actually more often than not; we turn the other way~because that ‘theft’ that occurred a few seconds ago did not involve us directly cause nothing was stolen from you just that it happened to someone.
Yes, a weird subject to ‘re-boot’ a somewhat dead blog… but hear me out; no wait, actually hear him AND her out. You really should. Trust me, especially to all the professional and/or aspiring amateur photographers out there.
A li’l help from the Websters’ dictionary of what the word ‘theft’ means :~
“Theft, in law, is usually the broadest term for a crime against property. It is a general term that encompasses offences such as burglary, embezzlement, larceny, looting, robbery, and/or criminal conversion. Legally, theft is generally considered to be synonymous with larceny.
In the common law theft is usually defined as the unauthorised taking or use of someone else’s property with the intent to deprive the owner or the person with rightful possession of that property or its use.”
A…. more shorter version from dictionary.com would be ~
“–noun, plural thieves. a person who steals, esp. secretly or without open force; one guilty of theft or larceny.”
If you’ve went to their blogs, you’d understand why I write about this particular word or act. A columnarius for a subject is weird indeed; actually ‘re-booting’ this blog is an even weirder act in itself~but we’ll get to that another day; funny, I had 17 readers on monday…who would still be reading this blog..hmm.
Anyway..back to my subject..what I don’t understand is, why would you go out spending so so much money for your event to officiate your clone website but you can’t even afford to hire your own photographers?
So much so that you’d stoop down to stealing images from other sites’, even worse is that you DENIED any responsibility, knowledge, collaboration and/or intent of said act of theft. Compared to the original , its’ still a pretty terrible cropping.
Deny – from Websters’ Dictionary~ (the words in ‘blue‘ are my own ok, they would never put ThAT in their dictionaries..duuh.)
1. Declare untrue; contradict; ‘Hell NO, I wasn’t drunk or half asleep when I myself saw the image!’
2. Refuse to accept or believe; ‘If I stuck a 10,ooo volts cattle-prod up your arse, I’ll make you a believer!
3. Refuse to grant, as of a petition or request; ‘Oh, why not eh? Stolen so many from other people why should you start paying now right?’
Yes, yes… images are stolen from photographers for the benefit of such companies and/or corporations is quite rampant on the net…BUT in this particular case it is very, very, VeRy~PersonaL to Me. There are reasons why it is. Sometimes some people are so full of life and try living it with style; sadly they fail with epict proportions that in the end they are more like living life filled with shit.
I wouldn’t want to turn this ‘re-boot’ into a screwed-up dictionary~blog so that’s all for the definitions.
And as a last note. To the traitors that jumped my ship and went to join the Enemy; know THIS ~
Karma; is NOT what you will get in return for screwing other people.
Karma; is what WILL happen to YOU when you decide…
