When I tried to imagine what it would be like to be married, all I could think about was having -- at the very least -- my own room. My best friend thought I was crazy, telling me some of the best and most intimate conversations happened in bed between couples.

She walks you through the ins and outs of determining whether or not you have have the right to use a photo, as well as point out the obvious: we hurt people when we steal their work, even if they don't find out about it. ...more
