Default Re: Are you images stolen?

I don't do this, so this is not an issue for me. The problem I have is that these WAHMs spend time, product and money to get photos of their items, only to have them stolen and passed of as their own. I could be rich right now if I just took other people's designs and photos, I could easliy recreate any tutu, headband, clippie, etc out there. Instead I have spent countless hours designing and making products, doing really stupid things to get my daughter to look at the camera and not make a dumb face, edit these pictures, host them and THEN bring customers to them. See all those skipped steps when you steal pics? All of my hard work, only to have to compete with MYSELF because those are my pics.
The major difference between me and Disney is my time and investment mean a lot more to me, my family and my small business than them. Not to mention these are pictures of my daughter or someone else's!
For big business it is just a drop in the bucket - for small business it means a lot more.
