    Wow. The inconsistency of style and quality on the blog should be a GIANT red flag.

    Maybe I'm totally wrong and most likely naive, but there's the possibility that the photo studio and the company that put their webpage together did not know better.

    But my pragmatic side tells me that they ARE UNSCRUPULOUS THEIFS AND should be taught a lesson.

    Yeah I know, I was just using it as another example that it was the Dallas dudes. I was actually searching for the Yervant website.

    My work must suck...I never get copied

    I think this person is just trying to get good SEO. there is some misspelled words as well as sentences that make no sense, but just have keywords within them....

    I hate to say this but that is the internet folks. Once you put it out there, copyrighted or not, someone is going to copy, paste, cut, steal, alter, etc anything they can get their hands on and it seems these days that there is nothing you can do about it. Which is too bad.

    I have seen a lot of nice art, pictures, posters, graphics, etc, copied and used elsewhere including my own business logo and letter head logo.

    So I know how it is.
