Great question, Larisa. Although I don't make kits, I'm interested in seeing that answer also.
Digi is all new to me, and this thread has helped answer a lot of questions. Although I did know about piracy. In fact, you will laugh at this----when I first started digi, my friend, who makes and sell kits sat me down and told me all the 'NO's" about digi scrapping, mostly the piracy.
So, one day, another friend, who thought she as doing me a favor, send me a CD with some kits on it. When I opened it and realized what it was---I froze!!! I was waiting for the sirens to go off, and the police to come charging into my home and drag me away!!!!
I then broke the CD in half and threw it in the garbage!! HONEST!!!! I did!!!! Like I said, being new to digi, I figured that was best. Sadly, when I told her, she just laughed and said "nobody cares". How sad!!!
I know, from my friend who designs and sells kits, the hard work that goes into them. So, I will agree with what has already been said----DON'T SHARE!! Good grief---they arn't THAT expensive----buy your own!!!!!
And speaking of buying your own-----one more note. PLEASE give designers their credit due when you upload. This is how I have found and purchased many of my kits. In fact, I was browsing the gallery here, this morning, and saw something on a layout that I LOVED. She had listed the designer here at GDS, and I am definitely buying that kit!!!!
OK, I am jumping off my soap-box-----THUD!!!!!!!
