That's probably because you're not a programmer who stands to make 30% on every transaction on a work of art
Jason - first of all, what kind of market is there for digital art in the first place? I find it hard to believe many would actually buy it in order to (say) hang around the house, since for each piece you'd also need a digital device to display it. Doesn't sound environmentally friendly to me....
On the other hand, if you buy it for uses like yours (as a visual add-on to something on the web), then in order to display it you also need to deal with artists' copyrights - even if you own the image, you aren't allowed to display it commercially without permission. Does that come as part of the blockchain process?
And once you display it, what's to stop anyone from pirating it as they do now with other images displayed on the web? I could take a copy of your image, and put it out as a print or other decorative item, there's nothing in the system to stop that.
C&C of all sorts always welcome! (I don't mind rude or harsh criticism.)
I suppose I have to do this too
