Why We're *Not Protected* by RB

Here’s something more regarding theft of our Art that, with Rajee’s blessing, I copied and pasted to my Journal. It had come to Rajee from Drew:

Rajee wrote you a BubbleMail about 11 hours ago: This is a group BubbleMail, sent to all members of The Patchwork .
It turns out that the clear layer that you can put over top of your artwork in RB is more of a deterrent than a preventative factor in stopping your artwork from being copied.

Here is a bubblemail that ArtbyDrew sent me this morning about it.

As a programmer and a fellow artist, I need for you all to understand that the clear gif setup only discourages thieves, but can not stop them. All images viewed on the internet can be retrieved quite easily from your browser’s cache, irregardless of what browser you use. You don’t need Google or any other site or application to do this.

Bottom line… if your visitor has viewed your image… it is already on their computer.

Hope this makes all my fellow artists aware!

Peace,

Drew

The clear gif layer is better than nothing. I am still going to use the gif layer and the watermark option.
