I LOVE giving away freebies, but i am seriously considering stopping doing that. Why? Cause of %#*&(@ pirates!!!!
I give my freebies away, having paid for the resources to make them and all i ask is one thing, please send people to my blog to download. Well someone has uploaded my Treasured Love blog train kit, along with everyone else who participated in the train. I am hugely pissed off.
I make many more freebies than i do PTU kits, but i think thats gonna have to change. As much as i hate to ruin it for everyone else, i just dont like being taken advantage of.
What makes it so hard to send someone a link instead? What turns you on about doing this? If you want designers to keep giving freebies you all need to start taking a stand with these pirates. Tell them to stick their links where the sun dont shine! Otherwise, there wont be freebies to go around anymore. Why do you think alot of artists when PTU? Cause of bad apples not following their TOU. Well the same is gonna happen with scrap designers if you all dont make it your responsibility to report these links to the place they have uploaded them to as well as to the designers. I know i am seriously considering stopping as many freebies as i do, or maybe all. I just hate to make everyone else suffer over some bad apples.
I do have a couple blog trains coming up, but they might be my last, we shall see.
Did i mention the person who uploaded this free stuff also uploaded PTU stuff?
Oh yes, CILM tubes, PTU scraps. I have reported them to mediafire as well as to those involved. This is what more people need to do.
I guess the saying is true, "No good deed goes unpunished."
