We got into web site design because we love it. We love the idea of creating designs, and making lasting images of your dogs. But the fun stops when others ruin it. We are tired of blatant plagiarism of our graphics and content and decided it's time to take a stand.

Despite numerous attempts, it is amazing when people continue to deny their actions, even with our proof of their offense. Unlike these people, we believe in morals and get tired of their excuses fast.

The Process :: 1. We immediately document all offenses with screen shots of original and plagiarized work (which may include IP Address documentation of visits to our web site(s) 2. We give the offender a chance to reconcile their actions by removing the content and/or graphics from their site within 3 days of our initial contact. However, despite this generous act on our part, some continue to whine and fight. We call these people Fear Biters. At this point, we contact their web host with proof of infringement for the site to be taken down and also display their offense on our web site. If all else fails, legal action will be taken.

The purpose of this page is to educate the public on Copyright Infringement. There is absolutely no excuse for stealing the hard work of others, and we reserve the right to stand up and be honest with the dog world. Don't let this continue, and please support us in our effort to protect the rights of other designers.

So ask yourself one question: Who is behind your web site?
