Altered Box etc...



Hey peeps, aren't u excited that the weekends approaching? I've got a line up of activities and will not be able to scrap! Hahaha. Anyway, recently i've been bugged with a copyright issue. I mean you'll know i'm teaching at a local scrap book store here in KL and often we have students and customers who walk in n out the store. In some of my classes, the students ended up taking photos of my project (layout or mini album) for reason they wont be able to finish theirs on time. That's totally acceptable to me. Some came to my class and ended up selling the same mini album online. I have no idea on how to react to this. It is my copyright and ideas and i think the most ethical way of doing it is to at least mention the original designer of the product or maybe u can just mention 'inspired by so n so'???


Oohhhh i am so in need of advice here. I hardly watermark on my photos too. If i like any layouts or altered projects and would love to do something similar i would make it a point to mention that i scraplift so n so or in some cases i always said inspired by..so n so. I hope i make it clear here and will not end up finding my 'other' project on someone else blog! Hahaha...lol..



Anyway, i'd like to share an altered box that i did recently and yes if u do find the same exact design online in the near future kindly ALERT me!!!! Hahaha. It seems i need to get my photos watermark and yes i am the ORIGINAL CREATOR of this particular box!!!! Hahahaha...lol. Have fun looking guys..:)))

Apala itu orang...anyways I think if you know who that person is maybe you can just talk to that person.

Amelia, I think they're just new and don't get the concept of scraplifting and crediting? They probably treated the classes like baking class - eg where you learn how to make macarons, and once you master and perfect it at home you can sell them exactly how you were taught. (Unlike cake decorating classes where you learn the skills and develop your own many sets of designs out of the basic skills taught)

You should just send them a quick email to enlighten them, and a gentle reminder for them to give credit where it's due :)
