Its a real fine line between inspiration and plagiarism, but where does that line live? In this video, I look at where I feel the line should be drawn, what is acceptable, what is rude, and what is simply wrong.
This video came about after a lot of direct messages on Instagram where I was told that various people had copied my work or where my work had been seen published in various places and folks wanted me to know in case it shouldn't have been. All of the above were from very well-meaning people, which I appreciate.
Unfortunately. I have no idea where my work should be; that's why we have agents to manage this sort of thing. But when it comes to people copying my work, that is different, and I have a few views on this and things that I do in order to keep everything nice.
In this video, I discuss when and why an idea switches from inspiration to theft, as well as look at how I deal with extreme plagiarism and also when photographers have taken my images and passed them off as their own on stock sites or in their portfolios to try to gain commercial clients.
