What is WRONG with people....

Now I just read Gae's blog & her skull design(which is awesome & we use a lot of her designs in our work) was ripped off and actually featured in the back of the Fire Mountain Gem catalog! I would think that the magazines/catalogs etc would double check their sources of items to be sure that they are the orignal designers...

Mom teaches on-line and she has noticed that her students have being plagism everything!! She flunks them...........Is this the "new" thing????

I feel a lot for these people, they make a living from selling their product. This is plain WRONG.

  1. It's so rampant now because of the internet. It's just so easy for people to steal ideas and it can happen somewhere across the world and suddenly there it is on a shelf at Michaels or in a catalog. I think the editors try to do their best, but as a former editor I can attest to the fact that it's not always easy to get the powers that be to listen. Editors also don't always see the ads until late in the process.

    I really think it's up to all of us to bang the drum loudly until we start making enough noise that the people who feel it's okay to steal get the message.
