I’ve recently had a flurry of inquiries from people who have found older articles on the Design Center site, who wish to have their articles included on the same page.  At the dawn of the graphical internet, the “Design Center” site intended to include all the major areas of the visual arts, photography being one of them.  We even had a photographer who intended to run the photography department.  Well, about that time the web seemed to explode with photographers and photography sites, so I backed off and did not add a Photo department.

Court rulings on use of images

My article “I’ve been stung by the Copyright bee. Believe me, that bee sting hurts!” back in June ’17, is a good example of Daniel Nazer’s new article at EFI.com.

Yesterday’s post about Steven Heller’s new typography book reminded me of another book, and the issues surrounding digital ethics.  I dug up the 2004 post in 60-seconds to discover it’s even more true today!
