Cyber Scum

We've been absent for many months now. But the lack of new postings has nothing to do with a lack of new creations by Baiko. Please check out her gallery on ArtBreak for all of her latest works. No, we stopped posting because of image theft. Yes, we found out that Zen-Images Ikebana pictures have been stolen. That's right: used without permission and sometimes for commercial purposes. Shame on you are the scum of cyberspace.

Hello JW & Baiko,

My sympathies for having your work stolen.

It is an unfortunate part of sharing our art on the Internet that there are sometimes people who don't consider, or don't think, about the impact theft has on us.

I really do wish to continue seeing your beautiful work. May I suggest uploading lower resolution work in your blog and elsewhere, using watermarks, and having a more prominent copyright statement?

Please don't let them stop you from sharing your work with those of us who respect and appreciate it!

Thank you so much, Ivan, for your perceptive reaction which we appreciate immensely. Hope you are well and thriving. Warmest regards,
JW & Baiko.
