Art Theft and Dolling
I admit openly that I am not a particularly moral person. My conscious is flexible, my beliefs not all that strong. However, there is one thing that really gets to me, and that is art theft - and every time I openly state my beliefs on 'theft', in the dolling community especially, I seem to get shit for it. Half the responses seem to be 'but blue, who does it hurt? isn't this just about having fun?'
Short answer? No.
Long answer? Is very long, but I'll attempt to outline it.
In its very simplest way, art theft takes attention from original pieces. A person who takes another person's work and tries to pass it off as their own is directly hurting the original artist. This is pick pocketing the imagination; this is reaching into someone's heart and soul and stealing something they have poured themselves into. I've had it done, and you know what? It hurts. It's upsetting. It's not 'just fun'.
On top of this, the thief is now going to get attention for something that he/she didn't create. A
