Welcome to Weekly Words #16
I love this quote!
I can’t believe it was 5 years ago I posted my Treble Clef Doodle.
At the time I didn’t think anyone would like it so I didn’t put any watermark on it. I then posted it on Pinterest with my details in the information box and I am amazed it has been repinned over 53,000 times and that is just one copy of the picture – there are many many more.
Unfortunately, I didn’t realise that the original comment was not ‘anchored’ to the picture and so my details have since been lost.
Along with that I find it truly disheartening that there are umpteen exact copies of it with people passing it off as their own work. I appreciate art is inspirational and that is why I started my blog but it is hurtful when it is abused. I love to inspire but I do not condone stealing.
Lesson learnt – I will be more careful!
I choose to focus on the 53K repins and not the bad side.
I would love to hear if anybody else has been affected in this way or has any advice.
Thanks for visiting.
