What are the negative consequences of digital imaging?

Digital imaging is almost synonymous with plagiarism; unless for educational purposes, the format and process of digitizing images inherently allows for designers to steal, capitalize and profit on the artwork of a composition. Especially with Google Images, anyone can simply take a digital photo (that is routinely uploaded on the site) and use it for their own right, either due to laziness or lack of originality. The rest is history; the results may and can vary, oftentimes leading to output that looks entirely different from an original source, hence not all complete without it (and nonetheless with no credit given where it’s due concerning the person originally responsible for the digital image/photo/illustration).
