I REALLY do NOT intend to "steal" your amazing creations by any means, so please don't interpret my question as wanting to take credit for someone else's hard work. I was just wondering because some of them are not personalized with any wording at all, and I wondered if that meant that we're allowed to take them and personalize them ourselves. I could see how the DISigners might not mind since it saves them time, but I also realize it might look like we, not the DISigner, created the magnet. Either way, I am absolutely, 100% happy to ask the respective DISigners to personalize for me if this is against protocol. If someone could answer my question (and not scold/jump on me for asking), that would be wonderful. I really just want to do things "by the book."

Thank you, everyone, and have a great day!

Did you get my reply to your pm? I couldn't tell if it went through, it's not showing on my sent list. (Edited: Never mind, I got your email, so I guess you got mine. )

I do post blanks for those interesten in personalizing their own things. Some of the work does take time to do, but I don't feel there is a point of working so hard on a design if it's not going to get used. I find for the most part when people use my blanks and post the finsihed product they give credit. I appreciate that SO much. I think it's kind of cool too that when someone uses my stuff and doesn't give me credit, a lot of people who do know my stuff make it known that it is mine. Either way, I belive that more good comes out of it than bad, and I really love designing. It is my stress releif and creative outlet. It all depends on the designer though, the best thing to do is ask them personally if you plan on using their stuff. Hope it helps.

Thank you so much!!!

"Only the owner of copyright in a work has the right to prepare, or to authorize someone else to create, a new version of that work."

Even if we draw them ourselves, use them as a small part of a greater piece of art, and don't charge or make money for them, we are probably on the wrong side of the law without the permission of the Disney Company to use their characters and other trademarks. I say probably only because I am not a lawyer.

I use clip art by googling what I need to incorporate into the designs. I also use coloring pages and color them in. When I can't find what I need, I draw it myself. I draw my own or create my own more now than I did when I first started. If you know how to do it, you should try it. It is so fun and addicting! If you do, please share. I love to see new creations.

There is nothing against creating fan art as long as you are not claiming the characters to be of your own creation and not making profit from them. However, if Disney asks you to stop, then you better stop or you will pay a hefty fine. Here is a little something that a friend once sent to me when the question came up...

"I drew a character that belongs to Disney, but Disney didn’t draw the art piece, so he hasn’t the copyright of my work either.

Who can distribute the work? Neither of us without violating the law. If I am allowed to post that fan art is because Disney is allowing me to do it, they could ask me in any moment to delete it due to copyright issues. (crazy, isn’t it? But it’s the law)

Now if someone copies my picture of Ariel (art theft), I have the legal power to stop them from posting or redistributing it-- but I don't own that picture either. Derivative works are non-distributable under the law by either the original copyright holder or the creator of the derivative work, unless permission is given.

So Disney can’t just, for example, take this creation, stamp it on T-shirts and start selling them all on stores. But keep in mind that I can’t do that either…"

Sorry I know I am ahead of schedule but I figured gotta get them when I can cause I know you get busy. Can I possibly get them to say 2013. The only ones I need redone are the big year one, and the 3 portholes just changing the year. Thanks dear...sorry to cause any trouble.
Oops, sorry about that. It's not a problem, easy fix. I'll get them done soon.

Also, you have done a few disigns for us and they are amazing, but I wanted to specifically thank you so much for the Harry Potter house disigns you did for my son last year. He is home schooled and has a learning disability, but decorating our classroom has made such a big difference for him. He's had the best time and is excited to start class in his Hogwarts classroom each day!
That is so awesome! It was fun making them for you and I am so glad that he is enjoying them.

Here are some portholes for you. Please let me know if you want names on any of them.

I have used some of your blanks and personalized myself when I could. I am sorry I did not ask prior, just assumed it was ok since the blanks were on the 4shared file. I am only putting them on my door or using for FE gifts. Hope this is ok!!! I have also just saved some files of names already created instead of asking again.
