Rules of Anti-Piracy

I just found out some very sad news today. On two occassions today, I was faced with blatant acts of piracy. It's just so sad that people can't be more creative than to steal other people's designs and photographs.

People, it's wrong to snag a photo off the web, and pretend that it's yours. It's wrong to take a design, part of a design, or even an idea, and claim it as your own. These acts are known as Piracy, the same thing as stealing. And it's wrong.

Please, please do not copy my photos, or my digital designs and use them in way without permission. Please, do not take my FREEBIEs, and put them on your BLOG and give them away as if they belong to you. If you want people to see my Freebies and get them free too, then please give them the address to MY blog. Let them come to my site and see what I have designed and get them free the right way. The legal way. The nice way.

I appreciate your attention to this matter, and for you being a stand up citizen and obeying the rules of Anti-Piracy. It will make the web a happier place.

Thanks so much for your understanding, and I hope you buy some!!
