  2. or do some shirts in collaboration with your work…

  3. Stephen Torton – i do hate the self righteousness of photographers and their clinging to outdated copyright laws. Can you not appreciate that someone likes the content of your picture and has shared it to a wider audience?

    • Stephen Torton Says:

      That is very cool of you, and as you notice it is up, but their are commercial entities which can , shood, must, and do pay. Are you an anarchist (good!) or an iidealist (good) or just a self righteous non photographer who does not believe in intellectual property?

  4. RAMMELLZEE Says:

    And Yes! They should not be reproduced and sold for sale without permission ….for RAMMELLZEE’s ESTATE owns copyrights to all as well. So far there is only one person making money from reproducing …..It’s you Mr. Torton.

    Making money without permission is disgusting. Careful.

      Ramis dead. I own my copyrighted pics, chill the fuck down.

      • Stephen Torton Says:

        Pardon my bad spelling, cracked phone autospell etc. the point is Ram s estate does not ‘own’ my photos, thank you very much, and suggestions that photos must be free to share is equally obnoxious….
