Disney saying they will donate to cover fine for copyright infringement 🤔

Have you guys heard about this? An elementary school was fined for showing a movie without the proper licensing (as is legally required), and when it became a major news story the president of Disney said he’d donate the money they were fined.

It just makes me lose my mind he basically said copyright infringement doesn’t matter. I’ve had SO many issues and convos with clients about why it’s important, how you can’t take photos off Google, or just take video, etc. Now this does nothing to defend all the people who’s income depends on this! Just confirms to the public that it’s all okay!!!

Ugh. #rantover

Anyone else irritated??
