I’m aware that indiscriminate eBay sellers will steal one another’s pics to sell their own similar items, which drives me nutzo too. But I’m finding this to be most offensive, a project that I have created, and shared ONLY with my fellow lumberjocks, turns up on a totally different site like the owner is getting a good story and pics and profiting from his piracy. It’s not fun, stumbling over stuff like this, and makes me hesitate to post anymore projects…god knows where they’re ending up!!! The first time I saw it, it was a discussion topic on his site… the next time, it was a link to the LJ site…but it IS my intellectual property!!
