Why so Strict?

This web site is a labor of love – love for the Great Dane breed and love of the creative process. I thoroughly enjoy creating images, writing stories, building web pages and putting it all online for the enjoyment of others.

Unfortunately my work is being pirated with increasing frequency. Unauthorized content from this web site has been used by puppy millers, backyard breeders, pet sitting services and others to promote their own interests. One person in particular has taken several of my illustrations, removed my copyright notices and replaced them with her own. She has packaged these works as part of a collection that she is offering for sale on her web site – and she is claiming authorship. (Legal action pending.) Dealing with such infringements is time-consuming and costly. Due to the escalating misuse of my work, it has become necessary to register every image on this web site with the United States Copyright Office. Formal registration expands copyright protection and allows the full weight of the law to be brought against those found guilty of infringement.

I wish it wasn't necessary to regulate my work so strictly, but the actions of others leave me no alternative. I hope you understand.
