Cover Art Issue

I am so sick and tired of seeing other blogs take cover art that I MADE and cpmpletly cut off the tag at the bottom. It work really hard to make those covers and and very proud of them. If I see ONE more blog that does it im gonna have to put a HUGE stamp across the center of every cover I make, I know it sucks but i dont know what else to do. People need to learn to respect other peoples work

I always credit you Matt, they are awesome covers and other blogs shouldn't ruin it!

Aw dude that sucks. But I think you should do that anyways. It's just easier to deal with that way.

you make those?? i always took them for the real deal, good job! i have not stolen anyone though...
the coverart could've been real..i'm thinking single-covers or something. i live in norway and the covers are useually different here than in the us..

I agree with you -- it's plain rude to see others steal your hard work, but please don't put watermarks all over the covers! I love having covers for my songs (because i have a colour ipod)

perhaps you could put the watermarked image on the blog, but add the un-watermarked cover to the download (i.e. when you dl the song you also get the cover art)

i'm loving the new layout by the way!

I'm really sorry Matt, I promise I won't use your art again!

Just do what I do... put a little watermark at the bottom of the image... I posted this article on autospies.com when i had my old blog and I didn't want anyone else to steal the image so... http://www.autospies.com/images/users/JCF110/New%20Picture%20(2).jpg

I love your covers - I only use them for my video iPod - especially the new JC cover. I would never use them and not credit them. That's just lazy and ignorant.
