Love your Hope for the Future. Curious how AI Art adds to the complexity of the NFT copyright situation ...

As a writer, people have taken my words and used them, sometimes extremely out of context to make money. When I was doing a lot of work in the crochet space, designers were always trying to find the people who were stealing their patterns and take them down. In both sectors, many of my peers devote a lot of time to making sure that their work isn't stolen in this way. And while I think it's crappy that it happens, I have never seen the value of spending my own time worrying about it. I kind of have a faith that my work will reach the people it's meant to reach and whoever is stealing it will reach a different kind of people and I just don't concern myself with it a lot.
