I’m a big proponent of fair use especially when it comes to remixes, parodies, fan fiction, and other sorts of art. I’m also a big proponent of credit where credit is due. Even on this blog, I make sure that all of the pictures are credited and used properly. It’s not too hard in this day and age to contact a creator and get a simple permission when you’re a single blogger… let alone when you’re part of a corporation. I usually try not to indulge my schadenfreude but, come on, people.
