Please, please, please
Please, respect my copyright
I'm so tired of having my pictures uploaded to a myriad sites, send in all directions through email stationery, used in a thousand different websets, taken out of context and pasted into other images, or even just with the signatures replaced with someone else's.
As anyone that would bother to read my descriptions would know, these pictures mean a -lot- to me. I put a lot of heart and soul into every single one, and they're all meant to represent characters from a world I've created, and as such, they belong with their stories, and in their context, not anywhere else. I'm begging you guys, leave the images where I've uploaded them, or on your own computers as wallpapers, saved in folders, or screensavers -- but please, please, please do not, under any circumstances, upload them to the web
I've had my images sold, and resold, and used for commercial purposes, used on porn sites (??!), used to represent other people's stories and characters, uploaded and taken credit for as someone else's 'art', and misused and abused in all ways I can imagine... and I'm just very, very tired of it.
This is a plea for my fellow deviants not to do this. Please, show some respect... I'd really hate to take my work down from here, as it seems to be a huge source for theft right now -- all pictures here seem to end up all over the place.
Anyway... merry christmas, everyone. Thanks for listening.
