Now here’s something refreshing.
A few years back I discovered that a certain company that, shall remain nameless, “stole” a huge chunk of a web site content we created including custom illustrations and posted it on their own site as their own work.
Annoyed is the only polite phrase I can use here, but to suffice to say the problem was swiftly dealt with!
Ever since I have been on the lookout for similar happenings and it comes as refreshing suprise when we are actually contacted about the use of a piece of work. Today for instance I have had a request from someone wanting to use a piece or art posted on one of our sites… we have contacted the artist to ask permission … so we will wait and see!
