Why would you think it's ok...?

Why would anyone think it's okay to take pictures from a designer's website, post it on a facebook group without getting permission first or giving credit to the owner? And when the owner says "You shouldn't have stolen my pictures of my designs and posted it on your group", the person responds "I was offering you free advertising. You (the designer) should have come to tag your pictures".

Seriously, why would anyone think this is appropriate? Free advising on a free website? Just stupid really. Luckily for her, they weren't my pictures. Otherwise, she'll be explaining her case to facebook instead.

The scary thing is she's not alone in thinking like this. And it really scares me that people of my age-group and younger still have retarded thought process like this: I am going to steal your stuff, post it on my group where people copy designs and when you complain, I am going to act like you are not recognizing the HUGE favor I did for you.
