i am really upset... i don't charge much for the hard work that i do.... i spend hours and try to make my artwork available for people with all price ranges... i spend days setting up my etsy shop, frazzling my curls, and working hard at organizing my papers.... i set free time to create so that someone ELSE can benefit FREELY?! i am turned off and disheartened at this situation... it's sad that the internet is such a palce where people think EVERYTHING IS PART OF THE CREATIVE COMMONS COPYRIGHT... and if no one know, my stuff is not under such a copyright... i claim all rights unless someone is putting THOUSANDS of dollars in my pocket...
it makes me contemplate on changing my blog... i pay for typepad and found out wordpress is free... i''ve thought about moving it for awhile but worried about losing my fellow readers and supporters.... i've played with the notion of getting a new blog site and now, i just may.... if i go, will you come with?!
so in case no one knows [or pretends not to know], ALL MY ARTWORK IS COPYRIGHTED UNDER ELLIA ANA HILL, ELLIA HILL, GREENBEANBABY, AND GREENBEAN ART. NO ONE MAY TAKE MY PHOTOS FOR PERSONAL OR NON-PERSONAL USE. PERMISSION MUST BE GRANTED IF YOU WANT TO POST PARTS OR PHOTOS OF MY BLOG ONTO YOUR SITE. YOU MAY NOT POST, COPY, REPRODUCE, REPRINT, OR SELL MY ARTWORK AND PHOTOS FOR ANY FORM OF USE. FAILURE TO DO SO WILL RESULT IN LEGAL ACTION.
LASTLY, to those of you who respect my art and photos, THANK YOU... thank you for supporting me and promoting me and looking out for me... if it wasn't for you all, i wouldn't have even known on such an issue... and if i move, i welcome you all to come with!!!
