I did a search and came up with 5 instances of my books being scanned into various public albums. It takes a lot of time to report copyright violations to Picasa as you have to document, in writing, each and every page. So, five instances times 20 pages = 100 documents. When I first ran across this I took the time to do just that. One album was removed..... one out of 8 instances at that time. I wish I had the time to continue reporting copyright violations, but I'd rather be beading. It is like rowing against the current as more pop up as soon as a few come down. I do take the time to make a comment (if activated) and report it as inappropriate content.
One nice surprise was finding Andrea's album of beadwork and my name as credit for patterns. She does very nice work.
