Personal Quote: You fall down, you get hurt but you always get back on your feet again.
Why do people keep stealing my stuff??  I have no idea why some people seem to think that my photos are "stock".  They are clearly marked as copyright, underneath each and every one of them, and I have never said that anyone could use them.  Some people have asked me beforehand and I have given permission to a selected few but I keep finding out about someone using my photos without my permission.  

Last year I quit uploading my photos here because of this.  Now I have deleted all my photos from my acount because this clearly is not the right place to display your photos.  I do hope that all of you people displaying your artwork here, or anywher else for that matter, think about copyright because that is something all of us artist need to be aware of.  I know there are people out ther that share their work and give permission to others to use it and that is fine.  But there are also alot of artist that don't.  And having your work "stolen" can happen to any of us.  And my guess is that you would not be very happy your self if you found out that someone had created their own stuff out of yours without your awareness!
