[This act of extreme civil disobedience inspired by Endless Simmer.]

John Mayer, the musician, is now food blogging and to prevent others from stealing the photos of his food he's taken to watermarking said photos (above). We're going to say that again for emphasis. John Mayer, the musician, is now food blogging and to prevent others from stealing the photos of his food he's taken to watermarking said photos (above). Here's the story in his own words:

My meals. If I'm correct, America - no, the world - will want to see this. In fact, I'm not sure why I don't turn this mlog into a pay site. Oh wait, I remember why - because I love my fans. And I don't think you should charge money just because you could make a killing off something. I should add, though, that if I do go broke, I will need to charge money for this site so that I can have the means to buy food to take pictures of and then eat.

I've stamped these photos with a watermark to avoid unlawful publication in the media.

Things that John Mayer believes: 1) People want to know when he eats fried chicken. 2) People want to see photos of his fried chicken. 3) When they see these photos, people are apt to steal said fried chicken photos for use else where online and off, where people care deeply about his fried chicken intake. 4) To protect himself from this, it's best to add a watermark to all photos of his fried chicken. Things we believe: dude's gone off the rails.
