DEAR BROKE READER...
Author Sarah Madison picks apart the arguments of those who want enjoy creative content without supporting it....
Read her rebuttals here in her post "Dear Broke Reader, Your Sense of Entitlement is Killing Me"
1) "I'm broke and I can't afford to pay for my entertainment"
2) "Creative works should be free -- the purpose of creativity is to tell stories and share them, and there shouldn't be a monetary component to the process."
3) "Writers (artists) already make enough money"
Sarah's replies are thoughtful ... and good tools for other artists who are being ripped off.

Artist David Revoy takes the educational route...
Think fans and users don't need to know about license agreements and fair use of content??? Think again. The more we all know about the rights of artists... the better the situation is for everyone.

Take a look at these resources.
Artists have a right to be angry.
Fans have a responsibility to creators. Nurture what you love.
