I have wasted so much money buying commercial-use products only to find out after the fact that I cannot use them for what I intended to use them for. I got a pretty $%^#$% email this week from someone named Stacy ( an owner of a digiscrap store) telling me to remove files immediately from my blog, telling a designer that I violated tou, etc. I was tempted to reply because I was so mad. The email was very rude.And I did not remove the files for HER! I did talk to the designer and it was taken care of without her interfering.
Then, I did however create a freebie and did not credit the person who originally created it and was contacted by her and she was respectful and kindly asked that I give her credit. (which I did).
I have no intentions on ever violating a tou or not giving credit for someone elses "help" in creating the final product. I do have a problem with tattle-tails and people being rude to me when they have NO right. I spend a lot of time creating freebies and I don't make any money from them and do it because some are not able to make their own and I also enjoy making stuff. So...I spent all this money in the past 2 years on commercial use items and there are so many resrictions that I will never be able to use them like I wanted to.
Most of them let you make kits, but no element packs. And they have to be significantly altered. So I cannot colorize them and add a few overlays and then share it with you even though I did purchase it. How in God's name can you significantly modify a button and it still be a button?
Please tell me.
Anyway...I just needed to vent about this. There are some who have reasonable TOU and I will continue to buy their items when I am able to but some of them ( I will refrain from putting the names here) are so outrageous with the tou that it takes the fun out of it.
Hope you all have a great weekend.
