suspect instance, mention of the n word, highkey racist ass shit, possible anti-Semitism Show more
There's this highkey suspect instance called kneegrows (plural of negro 😒. They thought they was clever. Try again musty bitch) I just ran into. I asked if they were Black and they said were not. Suspect. The instance considers antifa as a terrorist organization LMAO even more suspect.
One of the user's name on the instance is "nigger." SUSpect. That same "nigger" account posted a pic of the klan chillin on ferris wheel. SUSPECT.
So yeah lol I hope they choke.

@theartguy False dichotomy. It is not enough to only abolish IP without abolishing all private property. No one should have to "earn" a living, artist or otherwise.
And I certainly don't seem to understand how any revolution that abolishes capital (including private property, including intellectual property) would leave wealth intact.

@metapianycist @theartguy That's mischaracterizing it. My argument is that litigation simply is not viable or sustainable for the majority of independent artists, photographers or otherwise. IP is *already* the uneven playing field that you are worried will arise by abolishing IP. Which indie photogs can afford lawyers? Do you really want to leave justice in the hands of whoever can afford better lawyers?

@theartguy really misplacing your ire and sarcasm there, maybe? intellectual property is invalid because all private property is invalid. it makes no sense to use the "starving artist" as a human shield of sorts to prop up a contradiction. and even then, any money made will be from cultivating relationships and patronage, not from litigating or defending IP, which is actually a huge *loss* of time and money for the "little guys". "little guys" don't benefit from IP.
