the drawback to that of course is misuse of materials associated with your name.
you find material you shot being abused, but some lowlife and you want to put things right, but gave up your copyrights…people connect the abused material with your reputation…(for example you shoot a video of kids playing at a play ground thinking a client might use the images for promoting a laundry detergent, and the find the KKK use it for promoting hatred about letting mixed races in public playgrounds, and their parents want to sue you).
