oh boy :))))
mini psa: don't steal art
stealing doesn't necessarily mean you used it as your own!
let's use borrowing clothes as a metaphor here.
if you ask a friend whether or not you can borrow clothes, and they say yes, then, well, you have their permission! you can borrow their clothes
but i assume that they don't want you to modify it ://
if a friend tells you to not change it ("labelled for use without modification"), then! don't change it!!!
while you're wearing the borrowed clothes, and someone tells you they like the clothes you're wearing, chances are you should tell them the clothes belong to your friend
and!! if you don't ask your friend, if you don't know your friend's opinion on it, or know they don't like it—and still wear it! that's theft.
dude if you really want to pay respects or credit to the artist you don't say "credit to artist" that's the equivalent of just forgetting about them
that is rude no thank you :///
