For about 15 minutes this morning my blog had one of the most beautiful banners that I have ever created.
I received an amazing card in the mail.
Go ahead. Click on the link and look at it. I'll wait for you.
Ain't it beautiful?
I took a photograph of it and create the banner and uploaded it, but then I had second thoughts about it, so I asked my husband who is an expert in all things legal having to do with copyright if what I did violated the artist's copyright.
Absolutely, he said.
So I thought about getting permission from the artist (click on that link too -- pretty amazing) to use the artwork -- which I have done in the past -- but I decided not to pursue it for the time being.
Richard informs me that there is a group of attorneys whose main business is suing bloggers for violating the copyrights of other people. So.... I decided to pay it safe.
