WHAT YOU WON'T FIND HERE
Before I get started I'd like to make it clear that this news article does not deal with how to protect your work online (watermarks etc), whether or not you should post your work online or whether or not you should take steps to deal with copyright violations if the person committing them isn't profiting from your work or claiming credit for having created it.
It also does not contain a response to people who say "You're lucky your work is good enough to get ripped" although if it did, it would say something like "Don't be so stupid, theft isn't a compliment. If someone stole something from your shop you wouldn't sit back and feel thankful that your stuff was good enough to steal". But I'm not getting into that here.
WHAT YOU WILL FIND HERE
This article contains information about some websites where rips occur, how to contact these sites and what information you should provide to help your report be dealt with
