Its clear its just a shitty analogy.
When you take a tv your taking a device from a store that is trying to sell their product.
Mattis Fredriksson doesnt sell prints or anything. He gets photo's published he doesnt sell individual copies so there's really no way i could get one. Once you take one photo you can make unlimited copies on the internet. Thats the beauty of it. If I take a tv from a store, im depriving them of an actuall item they could have sold to make money. Now they need to pay to make a new one. If i copy and paste a photo it doesnt hurt the photographer one bit. Im not posting it all over the internet or anything, im just admiring his work everytime i turn on my computer.
Besides I guarentee youve downloaded music illegally or watched a downloaded movie or something along that nature. Those are even worse because thats someone getting a copy of a dvd or cd that they would have otherwise purchased.
If i copy this picture he doesnt loose a potential customer and in turn potential profit. He couldnt have profited of me anyway because he doesnt sell prints.
