Good-grief, steal my stuff!
Take it all.
Quote me if you can – but listen – it is not required.
I mean, if I could ask one thing, it is that you share any of my stuff that you like.
Share it by email, or on social media, tell a friend, or even print it out.
And if you don’t want to pay me, give me a dofollow-backlink if you can.
Like every other artist: Just let me be known…
The publisher and technologist Tim O’Reilly puts it well: “The problem for most artists isn’t piracy, it’s obscurity.” In other words, we spend a lot of time insisting that nobody steal our work or get it for free . . . but we forget that being unknown is a far worse fate for an artist than being underpaid.
