ABOUT FREEBIES:

  • Just becuase it was free, doesn't mean you can do anything you want with it.
    "FREEBIES ARE GIVEN FROM THE VENUE OF THE ARTIST'S CHOOSING IN ORDER TO GENERATE TRAFFIC TO THEIR PLACE OF BUSINESS. PRE-EMPTING THAT STEP NOT ONLY HURTS THEIR BUSINESS AND VIOLATES THEIR Terms of Use, BUT IS ILLEGAL AND VIOLATES US COPYRIGHT LAW."
    (quoted from Miki from Microferk Designs. )

Comments

I appreciate this argument, and I completely agree with it. However, it disturbs me greatly that many designers shout about piracy and then either use or even post links to "free" software and the registration codes to override the demo features of these trial softwares. If we are going to discuss piracy, we need to begin by discussing the designers who get angry about people stealing their work, and yet steal thousands of dollars from the software designers that make their work possible. I'm just sayin'.
