Pirated and part 5

I've been pirated again, people re-uploading my stuff on 4-shared, I'm just so P....
You can see who they are in the related files section on 4-shared.
This really takes all the fun away off sharing my stuff with you.
Is it so hard directing people to my blog to download???

I do this as a hobby, I don't make money on it, it's just for fun, I just love designing and sharing, but I guess I'm just to naive to think all people abide to my tou.They just delete my tou before re-uploading!

I don't know if there is a way to prevent this from happening, but I'm open to suggestions...


Now for the fun part of today's blog, The next page of my mom's 80th birtday photoalbum, hope you like it.

I'm sorry to hear that there are people out in the scrapping world who are so dishonest!
You give your beautiful designs as gifts - why pirate the files??

Thank you for all the time you devote to designing and sharing - I appreciate it.

Your 80th birthday pages are gorgeous, thanks so much for sharing them. I'm sure your mother will be thrilled with her gift!!

Joni, please don't let these thieves get you down. Although it's not fair,it seems to happen to all the good designers at some point in time. Just look at the number of blog hits you've had since June. You are really building up quite a following.
I've just downloaded the last 3 pages of the 80th Birthday kit. Thanks so much for sharing your gorgeous work. It is appreciated even though it might not look like it all the time.

Incredibly frustrating and disheartening, I know. But please remember there are many more of us who respect you and what you do and are grateful for your sharing spirit. I can't imagine having two themes going at the same time. Both are marvelous! THANK YOU!

that is exactly why i don't put my stuff on the net. one idea would be to have people sign up to your blog, and offer the downloads here, 1 week only for each kit your offer, so you can save space. they would have to registered on your blog to even get the file. kind of helps find the looter and lets you know who everyone is, so to speak. I know I would join up as i love your creations and try to pop in daily. hope you reported this abuse to 4 shared.
Oh, i just thought of this one too you could try; make people contact you via email for a password to get the file on 4shared if you want to keep all your files still online. use an online email account like yahoo or care2, they are free. keeps your personal email out of their hands.
well just some idea you can consider, either way let us know. I would be willing to join or do any of the following.

I am so sorry to hear the pirates have done this to you. Your sharing these files means so much to me.

Thank you for continuing on with your Birthday Pages, they are simply awesome.

Thank you for these gorgeous pages. I am going to use them to scrap my fathers 80th. My problem is I have been sick with the flu and not able to be on the computer and I missed parts 3 and 4. Is there any way to get them. I am sorry people are stealing your designs.
Hugs

I'm sorry you are having problems with piracy. It really is a shame some people are stealing the work you are giving away for free.
