Creative Commons is now in on the NFT scam. The tech industry has really lost any moral compass it may still have had. (via https://twitter.com/davidgerard/status/1463950773570654218?s=21)
Thanks for sharing,
@thomasfuchs I don't think the tech industry had much of a moral compass, even back in the day. What this tells me is that there is no longer any intellectual or ideological character to the CC organization and that they're just chasing whatever currently seems trendy and monetizable.
@thomasfuchs Just because something claims to be about something doesn’t mean it is. The technology isn’t to blame here, if anything a government would be the one to enforce anything, otherwise it’s just an image on the internet ????
As a means of donation to the original artist with almost nobody in the middle.
As a means of collecting things that almost “can’t” be lost.
“Why would you want to collect some jpgs?” Why do people 100% games? Why do people collect achievements? Why do people collect soccer/simpsons/animegacha cards? I’m guessing fun but it’s not my business.
I could easily snatch some JPEG off an image search and re-upload it to my own website with a CC license and claim it as my own. If it’s some rando shoop-job from n imageboard, who’s going to prove me wrong? CREATIVE COMMONS IS A SCAM, YOU GUISE
Adding to the cc by scamming anonymous lmao that’s genius
@Alex one is to allow people specify how their work can be reused, the other is to scam people out of money by pretending they own something
@thomasfuchs @TQ genuine question: how is CC reporting on NFTs as a cultural phenomenon (in this case, observing how traditional cultural institutions are engaging with them) shilling for/joining in on NFTs?
This doesn't seem like an endorsement to me. It certainly isn't CC selling or participating in NFT bullshit. It seems like them just talking about things that are happening in digital cultural space, which is kind of their thing. What am I missing?
@thomasfuchs Yeah, that's not even a square peg in a round hole, but more like a fitting a sphere into a square.
@thomasfuchs Maybe I should create an NFT for each line of code I release under Apache/MIT/BSD license... Hmmm? A line, file, project? I think a line is good, people can put it on a T-shirt.
