OK, I’m not trying to be anal. But if you take one of my icons or artwork from this site to use on yours or in your art somehow, I will call you out. Someone took one of my icons to use as her own on her blog, so now I feel it’s necessary to not only have a copyright line at the bottom of the page, but a disclaimer at the left. I’m not going to mention her name and give out the link unless she doesn’t take it down. But adding my link to your blog and then using that icon doesn’t justify usage. It’s called stealing. It’s that simple.
I hate having all this crap about copyright and stealing, etc. But it’s not here for everyone to use. It’s part of the identity of me and this blog.
I will get off my soapbox now.
She tweeted me to let me know she took it down. She apologized and said she meant no harm. But I tweeted her to tell her that just because it's on the internet does not mean it’s fair use.
