The two most succinct points to remember from the above video are:
"There's a thin line between what he (Prince) is doing and what all social media companies are doing; which is, they're all running restaurants in which we come in and bring the ingredients and cook the food!" ~ Chris Hayes, MSNBC
Pay attention, Flicker users. You have given innumerable numbers of your images a Creative Commons (generic) license. You are wide open to Prince-like exploitation!
Use social media with your eyes wide open: you make the cake, others make the money!

A great way to earn money and start your career? Well, not exactly.
Many competitions work on the assumption that what you the writer most wants is to be seen, and to be able to put on your CV/resume and website that you’ve been performed. But competitions seem to work on the same principle as voluntary work: that doing is a reward in itself and substitutes, if not eclipses, earning. ‘We’re charities, we get little money’, competition organisers say. And yet they’ll charge the public a fee to see the performance and pay their box office staff, but not their writers, and I fear nor do actors, directors, composers or stage crew receive money.
Sometimes, everybody BUT the writer gets money - and they've spent the longest creating the play!
Here are some British-based national open theatre writing competitions whose rules and ethos I query:
Windsor Fringe’s Kenneth Branagh award. Three plays are chosen for performance, one gets picked as winner and gets money. So it means that plays 2 and 3 are performed without prize or fee and cannot be put into other competitions, which almost invariably ask for unperformed works – a point the organisers don’t understand.

The Open and Youth winners along with the inaugural Mobile Phone winner of the world’s biggest photography competition, the Sony World Photography Awards, were announced 31 March, 2015.
Drawn from the four corners of the world and covering a huge range of subjects, the winning photographers were chosen from over 96,000 entries to the 2015 Sony World Photography Awards.
The achievement of each of the 14 winners is extraordinary not only in terms of the competition they faced, but also the fact that these winners are largely not professional photographers; instead they are simply individuals who love photography. The youngest winning photographer is Stephanie Anjo from the United Kingdom who is just 14 years old and the winners are geographically spread from Mexico to Malaysia.
