I've been pirated!

Hi guys. I'm so sorry but I won't be posting a freebie tonight. Apparently someone has taken my work, put their name on my previews and called them theirs. Ugh! Sooooo I'll be dealing with this for the rest of the night. Sorry!!!

Well, I'm going to say it... what jerks!!

Aparently they are jerks in eastern europe because that looks like the cyrillic alphabet.

I'm sorry. We appreciate you!

Joy said...

Boy people have their nerve... one more I swear they are going to ruin it for everyone.

I am sorry that people are that awful.

Elizabeth said...

Man, can you even figure out who that is? I hope people ask her for a tutorial, she wouldn't have a clue how to do anything but paste over a name. So sorry, don't let it get you down, they aren't worth the emotion.

That just makes me sick!! I am sorry to hear about that- I can't imagine how that must feel. Thanks for all you do and I hope you don't have to spend too much time dealing with those idiots!

Sorry that anyone has to go through this, just takes fun out of making freebies right out! If people can't design, well, truthfully I can't, it's not easy, but it doesn;t entitle anyone to steal something and claim it as their own, how sick! I am sorry you have to deal with it! And as to their origin, Michelle, there are enough jerks out there, East or West, I am from Eastern Europe and a) would never think of stealing anybody's stuff, and b) it looks like the symbols rather than any Eastern European language I know. Funny, how they chose a secret identity, instead of putting their name on to it! Hugs, Casey! You have been doing such a wonderful job with the original pretty freebies, I just wish people appreciated the effort, took it and said thanks, instead of making you spend your time dealing with thieves. Hugs. Olga

Oh, no! What a horrible experience for you. I can't even imagine what goes through someone's head when they do something like that. Jerks.

Dawn said...

I'm so sorry! How rotten!

We appreciate your hard work even if these losers don't.

Julie said...

Oh, Casey, this completely stinks! Don't these people have any morals???!!! I'm sorry that you have to go thru this!

WTH is WRONG with people???? I'm so sorry this happened to you!!!

Amberlee said...

Pirates!!! Arrrrr we should make them walk the plank!!! So frustrating! There must be something that can be done. I noticed 4shared had a way to report abuse/pirating so I reported it. Maybe if they get enough reports they will take their 4shared site down all together....

What a bummer! There are a few people who think they are entitled to anything that others have and so ruin things for everyone else. So sorry. Just know that the rest of us honest people have enjoyed your presents!

Melinda said...

Wow, that does stink! Well look at the bright side, it's kind of a compliment. They like your stuff so much they want to call it their own! Okay, okay... that's not very bright. I hate that you are having to deal with this.

Malinda, Travis & Kylie said...

So sorry! That is just frusterating! You are great! We appreciate all you do!

us said...

Oh...it's very bad. I hate people like this very much.
Because my photos were used by someone with business and forward email.

I hope you can do everything good.

I'm sorry, Casey, is there anything I or anyone else can do to help?

Ash & Becky said...

That is terrible! Some nerve!

Sharon Kay said...

So sorry to hear that!! I can't believe people can be so selfish and mean!

JohannaL said...

Hi Casey
So sorry that it happened to you also. It seems that almost all of us are facing this pirating issue with freebies.
I just wish you a strength and want to let you know that you do amazing job and please don't let them make you stop creating.

Newbie said...

Not a good thing but at least you found out so you can take steps to address it. Please don't let this discourage you...the honest folks appreciate your work and value it.

Lee said...

I am SO SORRY that someone has done this to you! Your creative hard work is appreciated by SO MANY of us!
