Gratitude and Piracy

Another blogger posted today that people are not following her terms of use for her freebies, and she won't post any more CU (Commercial Use) freebies. A few people ruin things for everybody. I really try to follow others TOU (Terms of Use) for their designs. I have to contact some designers to see if I can use their CU designs to make freebies, as sometimes it's not clear from their enclosed TOU. Yes, it would be easy just to do what I wanted with everything. Easy now, but then you get busted and you could be sued, or at the least, not trusted. And I do not want others to do that with my designs, so I should treat their designs like I want mine to be treated, i.e. follow their TOU, and say thanks. It takes a lot of time to make designers. Even using others designs to make freebies takes some creative mojo, and sometimes I'm all out of mojo lol.

Before I started scrapping, I rarely said thank you for what I downloaded. Now I realize that downloading without a comment really hurts. It's nice to feel appreciated. Now I try to say thanks every time I download a freebie from a blog. They don't have to give them away, and it is nice for them to realize there are many who appreciate their hard work!
