"Artists Should Be Compensated For Their Work"
On copyright, art, and compensation:
ART is negotiated with the MUSE. The "payment" is LIFE.
WORK is negotiated with an EMPLOYER. The payment is MONEY.
If artists want to be paid in MONEY, they should negotiate a fee before performing their work. That is the proper condition for payment.
