Lawsuits and Stuff

I received an e-mail today warning me of the company which is trolling the Internet to find copyright infringements for the sole purpose of cashing in on them. Fines of up to $150,000 is possible for each infraction. This has been going on for sometime, and now images are being targeted as well.

If you post comments, have a website or blog and use articles from other sources, reading the articles found at that link will help you stay clear of many troubles.

I believe in copyright laws. People who write for a living, research, or are artists should have the benefits of their creative endeavors.

But, to have a firm out there trying to bag an offender, just to fatten their wallets seems wrong.

Economics is a great incentive, however.

Heads up is all I'm saying.
