OK, you're retarded.
One of the primary reasons professional photographers seek to make
future copies of their work is so that they can control the quality.
It's probably rare these days for a photofinisher to have the ability
to print medium format negatives, but regardless of if it's film or
digital, if you have crappy prints made by Wal-Mart, it reflects
negatively when people see them and ask who took them.
Plus, it's my living (or was). I created the images, so I own the
rights to them. Get an education, moron.
