UPDATE:

I must say I'm amazed at the response given to this matter. I deeply appreciate and give thanks from the heart on your help, suggestions, comments and assistance.

I filed a report abuse complaint with Blogger and received a quick reply that they will look into the matter and get back with me as soon as possible.

Thought I would check to see if it's still posted, and the answer is YES!

I'm going to contact some of the freebie blogs and spread the word.


NOTE: I've had some of you mention in comments, concerned about me shutting down due to this, NO WAY!

I refuse to let one bad apple affect me, I shall always believe that the majority is good, and will always shine. No way will I let this get me down.

I enjoy what I'm doing, I enjoy giving and sharing what little I have to offer with others, I'm here to stay.

Peace

Jerry

i've only just found you & follow you thru my ponderous google reader. i'm always excited to see what you've crafted so don't you go anywhere that i can't find. *:)

i almost wish that site would get cook sourced ... but that would be an eeevil thought.

Okay, so noooow I am seeing why there isn't a million pissed off comments on that other blog-- they're moderated and not letting them through.

I guess this'll be a testament to how well and efficiently blogger takes care of the situation. Sorry people are such weenee's.

It's so infuriating that people pirate other people's creations! I wanted to let you know that I contacted Craft Crave and SuzeeQ's Stuff free download sites today and left a link to your site as to what's going on. I thought that might help. I love your work!!!

Hi Jerry, I wanted to share with you the response I got from Suzi from Suzii Q's freebee links:
Thanks so much! You know I think think this site has been reported before under a different name and different blog address. I stopped posting the other freebies because I do not support piracy, and I will stop posting "Far Far Hill" as well. Always made me wonder how they could spit out so much stuff and free to boot, on a daily basis. I will try to do a boycott post, since I do get a lot of traffic because a personally love shadow house textures. Thanks again for the update and feel free to let me know of any "baddies" in the future.

good for you...you have such a great attitude.
it stinks that there are some that are dishonest {and worse} in this world. i guess they have to live with themselves...
hope that blogger resolves this problem so that it doesn't happen again.
thanks for all that you give us.
you are amazing!!

Hey Jerry, I was so sorry about this situation that I thought you needed a cup of coffee to cheer you up ;>} I hope it all turns out well for you -- know that we're all rooting for the good guys!

Pegzz said...

So glad to hear that this will not chase you away from sharing your wonderful talents!! Hopefully Blogger will put a stop to them very soon!

Good for you! There are more nice people out there, than nasty people. I'll certainly be posting a comment on the blog mentioned - even if they don't get published, the person will see the comments, and realise that we are NOT happy with plagiarism and theft of copyrights.

I'm afraid that other website is still up and running. Sorry this is happening to you.

~HS said...

Because of a hard drive crash I have been gathering things from your site that I didn't back up. I ran across this post of yours about Far Far Hill... and they are back! I had this happen to me and I was accused of stealing at one point as well, which is why I always saved my work in a layered psd file, besides adding to the exif data. I've had my whole website cloned.
