You know, only you can create an original, insert your name here.
I was recently watching a video that was responding to someone’s concern posting their work online. This person didn’t want to do that for fear that someone might copy their work. The answer was if, work that’s any good is going to get copied.
But here’s something else. A copy will never be as valuable as the original and, like the title of this video says, you are the only one who can create an original work of art by you. Take this painting for example.
The photo I’m using comes from a royalty free site, so someone else could paint this image. But their painting will not be an original Sara Millett, because they are not me.
By all means, stand up for your rights as a copyright holder. But don't fret over the fact that someone copied your painting, because that's all they can ever do.
