Someone comes along, wants a picture of a cat for this random website you don't even know or care about.
They click on your picture, and save it without a second glance, then go to edit it and add text and even go to the extreme of adding their own name.
Yay, your art's been stolen!

By the way Miss g, Hufflepuff's the way to go. Not Ravenclaw.
Thats why they say... If you put pictures up on the Internet that you dont want people to see or take you shouldn't have put them up in the 1st place.

Then maybe WI should take down its banner and Webkinz should get rid of all their virtual pets. Also, I've personally never heard anyone say that.

I meant that as in what, exactly, are you implying? That nothing is safe on the internet? If so, that's already a widely-known fact, but not the topic of this particular thread.
Why should I take it off the internet, where I can show it to my friends and other people I know why might live halfway across the world, just because someone is not sensible enough to check for copyright info?
And, referring to your earlier post with the quote in it, who is "they?"

I think that the internet should be thought of like a library, or in some cases a bookstore. The info is there to be shared with others, but just like a library or store, we can't steal the info or use it without permission. Will some people abuse the system? Of course, and it's always good to keep in mind that anything we put online could be taken by others. It's still wrong though.

Hi, oh I agree. Some people do abuse the system. So sad!

You would have to credit them since you didn't make it.

Thanks for bringing this up Desty!
Just to let you know, Iconator is a site that downloads viruses on your computer.

Yes, Desty you are right. It's very rude to claim something as your own, and illegal. Some people are starting to forget what illegal means.

(if i did understand....)

Well, I dont think we should ALL give credit to the websites unless we want to... because if everyone knows, there would be no more graphic shops (except when they are home made) because everyone could just go and get their self a graphic. But I do think it is pretty nice when they do give credit, but I dont think we should all do it...
I thought the point of having a graphics shop was to make the graphic, not take the graphic and redistribute it. . .

Oh, thank you! You just stated it so clearly. If a shop owner is just redistributing something, they need to state that, and point people to the original website.
