I think Mo has some competition as a cartoonist. That was some pretty good (and unfortunately true) stuff.....

Mike Reed is an artist!
His message is clear and spot on.

Artist or not, I have to strongly disagree with Clyde (cagjr21150) about using someone else's artwork without attribution even if it's just to make a point.

Maybe I misread the post???

In any event, it's true...someone's watching us. Wink

It's actually illegal to copy or publish other's creations without their expressed permission. Copying for personal use can't be detected so it rarely sees legal action. It becomes an issue especially when someone uses another's creation, intellectual property, or work to make a point not intended by the author.

Brucie, if anyone here knows about copying and plagiarism, IT'S YOU, big guy.

You've been directly copying the intellectual (?) property of such luminaries as seedysailor, tycoonguy, beachdoser, sinbad, broadreach, DanWebster, JoeJane, blowhardbuster, swiftsailor, blowbooster, snowyguy, psychokiter, and others for years.

And you NEVER cite your sources.
