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.
