My thanks to Marc Harkness  for sending a link to the following you tube video. Below the video you’ll see a thread of comments. Why can’t photographers and other creatives see how ridiculous this is when it applies to their own business?
Get paid fairly for your work. Register and protect your copyright.

Thanks for the EXCELLENT link.
For whatever reason, it seems that people in the creative industries, have difficulty valuing their own work.
You know the sad thing is that, at least in photography, there are plenty of photographers who cave in to this crap.
Excellent videos, these are MUST watches for the folks in the business classes that I teach.
