A Thoughtful Op-Ed About the Legal and Ethical Ramifications About Image Appropriation

I recently wrote a blog post on my Instagram account which is linked both here and here.

Unfortunately I can’t copy paste text from posts, so I am temporarily posting screenshots of the paragraphs I wrote in the order they were meant to be posted in, and will come back to this post and edit in the original text very soon.

Here are the images I am using as the subject of this discussion, the first two are altered collage images I created of a pair of sequential images I screenshotted off a video I saw on Instagram a year or two ago..

And here is the copy of the post I wrote discussing image appropriation and ownership.

Thank you preemptively for your patience, I will be re-typing this post here as text shortly.
