Fighting Piracy

Our goal for this blog:
1.  To be a resource for designers who need help fighting piracy
2.  To be a resource for scrappers who need to understand what piracy is and how to avoid taking part in it.

A quick definition of piracy:
Piracy is the theft, reproduction, or redistribution of a copyrighted work without the permission or knowledge of the creator/copyright holder. YES, redistributing something you got for free is still piracy.  If you didn't create it, DON'T redistribute it!  Click here for why.

Please Note:
This isn't a regularly updated blog.  Really, it's a compilation of information -- a static content resource.  When the need arises, I will post new information here . . . but on the whole, the basic message of the blog has been spelled out in previous entries.  I'm always open to e-mails suggesting new content or letting me know if a link is broken; please don't hesistate to contact me! ~ jen

Great blog. Piracy has been an ongoing problem in the needlework industry and several years ago a group of volunteers prepared some information for designers. A copy can be found at http://www.skinnersisters.com/copyright

My statement to a House Judiciary Subcommittee on the issues of piracy in the needlework industry can be found at http://www.skinnersisters.com/statement

Piracy is a nasty, dirty habit and nice needleworkers and scrappers don't pirate other folks' work.

Great side, I have postet a link to you on my main page.

Hi, Jen and Meredith.

Congratulations on the blog. I believe it's a reference when it comes to piracy on digiscrapping.

I would like to mention that I have translated a couple of posts to Portuguese to educate Brazilian scrappers on a community (Digiscrappers Brasil).

I would also like to post the translations on the scrap blog I have with 5 other friends (blogscrap.blogspot.com)

Hope you guys don't mind my translations. I think it's very important that we educate all scrappers around the world, and for those who don't read English, I think we should go for translations, right?
