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,
back yard 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 freely distributing
from her web site and she is claiming authorship. Dealing
with such infringements is time consuming and costly. Due to the escalating
misuse of my work, it's become necessary to register every image on
this web site with the US Library of Congress 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.
