No, I'm not trolling. I promise.
But I read on another art-based forum that competent and professional artists don't care if their work is stolen and only bad artists Will get upset over it. All the posters in the thread seem to come to a general consensus that it was true. I personally disagree with it, because to me it would feel as if the time I had spent getting to that point and everything was stolen. And art theft in general isn't okay. No matter how much you suck.
Curious, what do you think of that statement? Where do you think this idea was spurned from?
