Alert for ALL dollers!
 
I just read a journal on deviantart alerting me to a serious problem. This message pertains mainly to those of you with websites, though I advise all of you to add Terms of Use to the opening post of your thread to avoid this problem in the future.

It appears that there are groups which are taking completed dolls and editting them, claiming that it falls under the Fair Use Doctrine of copyright law. THIS IS NOT TRUE! Every piece of work is copyrighted the second it is created and does not need government certification. Please read the links below regarding the theft and copyright law and revise your Terms of Use or add them, it is important in order to avoid your work being used illegally. Also, check into where your webhosts are located because they are affected by the host country's copyright laws.
