Interesting Thought on Copyright

Great thought I found online, copyright is an interesting thing, especially digital copyright. Here’s a different take on things:

“ I look at my photography like this. When I make an image it belongs to me. It belongs to me while I take the photo. It belongs to me while it sits in my camera. It belongs to me while I process it on my Mac. It belongs to me while I let it sit in an archive folder waiting to be uploaded to the Internet. Then I upload it to the Internet and it’s like I’m taking a bird and opening my window and letting it go. Off she goes. Her song to be enjoyed by the entire world — certainly no longer mine.
