Copyright Infringement

We had a very apologetic and sincere e-mail from Netta Marshall this morning. See below. Thanks Netta, We really appreciate it!

Hello Netta,

Thank you for your email. We accept your apology and we forgive you! We are not removing the post however. Copying is a serious matter that can not be taken lightly. It's a criminal offence. My designs are protected by copyright and by copying it, selling it and writing about it as this is your original design is down right outrageous. I would like to keep the post and also post these e-mails on the blog to act as a deterrent for other copiers. I'm sorry to add to your shame but I think it's important to make a statement here.

I would like you to remove any imagery of mine that you may have on your computer.
Thank you.

Kind regards,
Sandra Isaksson
