Get Art Up, a platform for renting artist's work to those who can't (or don't want to) commit to buying, were allegedly not paying the artists they worked with. After artist Jenny Odell wrote about her experience with the company, which obtained and rented out her work without her permission or payment, other artists have come forward with similar stories. Silicon Valley has had a tumultuous relationship with artists; while many wealthy members of the tech community are patrons of the arts, many sites promising new markets for artists are often even more problematic than traditional avenues.
