It's Fun to Play the Piano ... Please Pass It On!
I'm kinda stuck in the house, so I bring you PIANO ART!
Hi Dianne, I am glad you like my little display of piano keytops and sharps.
This image is taken from my website, without authorization. It would be nice if you followed copyright laws and got permission before using the image for your purposes, or at least gave credit where it is due.
I am not a stick in the mud, to be sure. But I don't agree with people surfing the net and taking other people's intellectual and and creative property and using it for their own purposes with no discretion and/or respect for existing laws or ethics.*
Just because I "found it on the internet" does not mean it is "in the public domain" and I can use it as I please. If I want to use an image from another website, it it a matter of ethics and law for me to ask for permission before using it. Simply ask - how hard can that be?
*Taking something from another person without permission and against their expressed will (e.g. copyright notice), then using it for one's own purposes, sounds a bit like stealing, don'cha think?
