Hey everyone :)
I've recently found out that many people are misinterpreting my TOU..I've tried to make it as open as possible so you can actually use the images you purchase...the only real stipulation I have is that you don't claim the images as your own..
I thought that was pretty clear, especially as many that use my stuff are digital artists themselves, but after downloading a free kit yesterday which had four of my cookies in it, I found that there was absolutely nothing in the kit that gave any indication that the cookies in the kit are mine..
The filenames were changed
My copyright was removed off the images
There is no mention of who made the images in the kit makers TOU..
I spoke to a few people about it, and they showed me more than a couple of kits that do the same thing..
This is claiming my work by any definition of the words..so now my TOU is as follows:
Do not pass these off as your own, by this I mean please make some mention of me somewhere in your creations.
You can do this by either:
1. Leaving my copyright intact on the image.
2. Stating in your TOU who made the images and a link to my blog and store.
3. Leaving the original filename intact.
You need not do all three but it's polite to do at least one.
Please don't share them with anyone, or on rapidshare, 4shared or similar..direct them to where you bought them.
Otherwise, do with them as you will.
Where credit is required on tags etc please use the copyright that is on the images.
Thanks for understanding guys :)
