Ya know ....welcome to the internet! Welcome to he-said, she-said. Welcome to world wide interpretation!
I don't appreciate getting an email lecturing me on what I can or can't post. If I share a link to someone else's blog - that is NOT COPYRIGHT infringement. If I copy word for word someone else's post and post it in my blog - yes, that is copyright infringement. Not sharing a link.
And for the record, I didn't share the post in question - just upsets me that being I'm a 10 year vet on the internet, I make and create webpages, that I need to be lectured about copyright infringement.
I do feel badly that I might have done that - and honestly I'm sure I have done it, I'm human not perfect. But to be threaten, is not professional in my book.
But so ya'l know what kind of person I am, I blog to share my accomplishments. I sometimes share other blogs that might have something interesting. I never do anything out of malicious intent or to "steal" from someone else.
While I understand this designer's upset and I highly respect the copyright laws, I kinda wish she might have handled it a different way - emailing all the commenters that posted to the post in question was totally unprofessional (especially when again, I did nothing). It just set such a negative mood in me for the evening.
(this is just a vent-I don't wish to state in details all parties involved....I'm all happy now playing with my brand new pink dell laptop)
