Artist Gwenn Seemel: Copyright is about fear, not money.

Gwenn Seemel self-portrait Second Face 2009Zinger quote from full-time artist (and QCO reader) Gwenn Seemel:

I'm fascinated by how artists say that their adherence to copyright is about money (even when they aren't making a living with their work) but that when you dig a little deeper it comes out that it's about fear.  It's about the fear that someone will do what you're doing but do it better than you ever did.
