housekeeping and a niggle
12 January 2008
You may notice I’ve tidied up the blogroll below. In the interests of keeping things simple, I’ve decided it’ll only contain my desert island blogs. If you were there and you aren’t now, it’s not that I don’t read your blog (you’re still in my feedburner). Consider yourself in good company – I delinked Craft Magazine and Whip-Up too.
Now, a small niggle. Remember this post about the bag I made for my sponsored child? Someone has reproduced the photo and the full text in their blog, adding only one line of text before hand, something along the lines of “look what I have for you today” (I’m not going to link to it, because I don’t want to send them any traffic). The title of their post links back to my original post, the photo url is my photo url. Their site has ads on it, so depending on how much traffic they get, they are making money out of my work.
I am uncomfortable about this. It’s not quite stealing, but it’s pretty lazy. I’ve now put a note on the about page which states the bleeding obvious about copyright, and asks people not to reproduce things without my permission.
