People, I didn’t see the change.
It looked the same to me.
Don’t sell documents with their clipart and fonts on it.
Besides . . . I don’t sell anything. I haven’t made one little penny off this teeny tiny blog. Gosh darn it. I guess this blog of mine is just for fun. SIGH. (I did get some free product from Creative Teaching Press but I did not even beg them for it. THEY contacted ME and I about fell over. I didn’t. I remained upright but I almost fell over.)
Anywho, I emailed DJ Inkers. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve emailed them. They have GREAT customer service. One time, they tried to email me back and it bounced back on them or something AND SO THEY CALLED ME. This was about 20 minutes after I’d sent my email! REALLY!
I’m not the only one who emailed them. Quite possibly, Rachelle at What the Teacher Wants did, too, but I can’t be sure. But the email I received back had a bunch of people in it.
I really want to cut and paste the email right here but I’m afraid I may violate copyright laws. Even though it’s MY email.
Basically, here’s the jist. Physicist. And here’s what’s up. Buttercup. And here’s the word. Hummingbird. Is there a copyright law on quoting Big Bang if I don’t put quotes around those sentences and say that Penny said them to Sheldon and I love to use them now?
DJ Inkers wants to make money.
I KNOW!! I couldn’t believe it, either.
They’re just afraid that if we keep sharing documents with their clipart on it, no one will go buy their clipart. I’m telling you, I thought I was the SOLE REASON they were in business. I buy it all. I am addicted. I am in love. Sometimes, other clipart will JUST not do. And don’t get me started on my bulletin boards. If it’s not DJ Inkers, it’s not a bulletin board (that could just be my school’s saying).
Here’s what I learned.
Don’t SELL your documents with their clipart.
Share. In a PDF format. Or on a site that is password protected.
Credit DJ inkers on the document.
So I’m not putting their stuff on my documents. Well, I’m going to put their clipart on it, but not that credit stuff because my disclaimer about THAT is over on my sidebar. (And believe it or not, hubby actually agrees with me on this and he is a rule follower but not this time. He says it’s MY document. I bought the clip art and now it’s mine, too. So there.) But I should start putting MY stuff on my documents, as in THIS BELONGS TO ME SO DON’T COPY IT AND SAY IT’S YOURS AND/OR GET ME IN TROUBLE BY TURNING AROUND AND SELLING IT. Just for the record, this has never happened to me but I decided to put it in caps because it was a hot topic at the SCBMUD.
So . . . I’m not taking down my freebies and I don’t think you should, either.
And to end this post — here’s a freebie for when you go back. ENJOY!!! And you know where all the clipart came from, right?

Well. I hope this post helps someone.
I hope I have not violated anyone’s rights, either.
We are off for a drive up the coast. We want to go to Malibu because it’s a BEAUTIFUL day and the hubs and I have never been. I’ll let you know if I have any celebrity sightings.
Who am I kidding? I’ll let you know what happened whether or not we see any celebrities at all.
