There are, however, two "ethical rules" of CASEing:
- acknowledge me as the original artist - whether you copy my work exactly, or use some aspects of it as inspiration (this is just plain good manners)
- never enter my work under your own name for challenges or publication (cos that would be stealing)
Let me give you an example with this card:
The idea for the nurse owl I got from someone else, and I named them in my original blog entry as being my inspiration. The doctor with the stethoscope I thought up all by myself. A few people have CASEd my idea, some of them acknowledged me (many thanks, much appreciated) with a link to my blog (even more appreciated) but unfortunately some of them didn't (NOT so much appreciated).
So folks, CASE away and thank you for the compliment - just remember the two golden rules and we'll all be happy.
