Dance the Hempen Jig

Hello everyone, it truly is Pirate month isn't it! There have been three alleged unrelated incidents just this week brought to my attention. It is my policy to not blend myself in idle chatter. However, I am empathetic and understand that piracy is a serious issue. Let me make it very clear that I do not tolerate or condone illegal actions on my website. stands for quality and integrity in myself and in the designers it allows on its website. Please as always, report any wrong, pirated, dead, expired or broken links directly via the freebie on the site. That is what the feature is for!

All alleged pirated designs will be suspended on the website until resolution is found.

Thanks everyone! Please do leave a comment while you are here on any photographs or freebies i have posted below. Also while i have your attention. I would like to ask designers who use in good faith to please return the favor of me linking to your freebies by adding our blinkie, GET BLINKIE NOW to your website. Thanks.

Cool, Vicky! Definitively you are right.
I knew a "pirate" on the net this week who scared me so much. She had used my work to freely promote (I think) herself, but I didn't realize what are her reazons to make something like that.
Thanks a lot for your effort in restrain this attitudes and help us to strike the piracy. You are too concious.
Many hugs,

Thanks for keeping on track, and helping us 'weed' out these pirates! Every little bit of effort sure helps get these people. Or least slow them down! It's good to know that DSD is there to protect the designer and their designs! Keep on Rockin!
