Here’s a nice coda to the whole Affaire d’Oatmeal: Political cartoonist Donna Barstow takes exception to the site Something Awful posting her cartoons without consent, and in the process, sums up about three weeks’ worth of lengthy posts in one pithy exchange:
“Are you talking about people posting them on the forums and making fun of them?” responded Something Awful’s David Thorpe. “I think you might be confused about the internet”
“I think you’re confused about money,” came Barstow’s retort. “Can I send an invoice your way?”
And there we have it: Legitimate commentary or picking someone’s pocket?
UPDATE: Here’s a link to Barstow’s site.
