Keeping Your Images from Adorning Other Sites Page 5
Custom artwork can result from someone's effort, and taking without permission something that another has created is generally accepted as theft. This article has described a basic way to put your works of art behind a velvet rope--if you're so inclined. It won't stop determined thieves, but it should hopefully stymy or dissuade the more casual ones.
Got a Topic You Want Covered?
If you have a particular Apache-related topic that you'd like covered in a future article in this column, please let me know; drop me an email at <coar@Apache.Org>. I do read and answer my email, usually within a few hours (although a few days may pass if I'm travelling or my mail volume is 'way up). If I don't respond within what seems to be a reasonable amount of time, feel free to ping me again.
