While I was traveling last week I got an email from Jerry Gonzalez, a Freelance Illustrator, telling me about an interesting video he found on YouTube that he thought my blog readers (that’s you!) would be interested in.  He thought it really stressed the point of how important it is to copyright ones art and photos – I agree.

It’s not a short video but it’s fascinating – I really encourage you to take 10 minutes and watch the whole thing.

I would love to know what you think and if you ever considered that a photo you put on Flickr could have this ripple effect around the world… leave comments!

Here’s to your creative success (and being compensated for it!)
