what's hot what's not

Stealing Pixels

Everything you see on the web belongs to someone.

There is no such thing as "Borrowing" stuff from peoples websites. Without permission taking anything other what is in your brain is theft.

'Borrowing' is what you used as an excuse the first time you got caught taking something that was not yours. This usually takes place at an early age and depending on the method of impression used to drive home the point that 'borrowing' is 'stealing' and theft and is not a good thing, determines how you conduct yourself regarding other people's stuff.

Our belief in the glory and possibilities of the web, which is why a lot of us publish, producing the large volume of work we make available and share with others.

We hope that people will enjoy our work, stimulate their creativity, build and share from their own unique perspectives, rather than 'save as', 'cut and paste' and publish as their own.

Wholesale downloading of text, images, files and design is not Fair Use. It is Theft. Re-publishing it is copyright infringement.
