Copyrights & More…

Any images and/or writings on this site belong to Cyndi Davis and must not be used without permission. That goes for any site I own.

Unless you are a complete idiot, you already know that.

My friend Shari, who is VERY thorough, put it like this:

Every single image on this site, unless explicitly stated otherwise, is © Cyndi Davis. All rights reserved. Images must not be reproduced, redistributed, sold, added to CD collections for sale or commercial use, or added to merchandise without the express and written permission of the artist holding the copyright.

I take my art, and intellectual property, very seriously. I am neither adversarial nor litigious, but when it comes to intellectual property, i.e. copyright, I do have a lawyer and I absolutely will take anyone to court that takes advantage of or abuses my work.

If you would like to purchase an image you’ve seen on this site, or would like to request to use an image in some way, please feel free to contact me at cyndisstuff @ gmail.com. Make sure you remove the spaces when addressing your e-mail.

Of course, in hers, it has her name and e-mail address.

And, of course, is © Shari Worden. Used by permission. Cuz she’s MY friend.

But, if you ARE an idiot, you would need that explained as well.

So, if you are an idiot, let me break it down further:

  • If you didn’t write it, it doesn’t belong to you.
  • If you didn’t snap the picture, it doesn’t belong to you.
  • If it doesn’t belong to you, leave it alone.
  • Taking something that doesn’t belong to you IS stealing. That would make you a thief.
  • If it doesn’t belong to you, don’t paint, write, draw, attach graffiti or otherwise “tag” it. In real life, or on the web.
  • Altering something that doesn’t belong to you is vandalism.

    A vandal is: one who willfully or ignorantly destroys, damages, or defaces property belonging to another or to the public.

    Vandals are just as bad as thieves.

    If you are an idiot, you should also know some other things. Let me put it in terms you can understand:

  • Thieves suck. You don’t always get something just because you want it. Earn it. Create it.
    Don’t steal it.
  • Hackers suck. You are not misunderstood genius computer geeks. You are vandals.
  • Taggers suck. You are not misunderstood urban artists. You are vandals.
  • Vandals suck.
  • So, there you have it. If you need more than that on the subject to make it clear, you likely are on the wait list for a lobotomy, so just disregard the whole deal and go have a rest.

    If you are not an idiot, I apologize.

    Oh. And, have a nice day. :D
