That is really too bad.

If I get time I will go back and pull out some of the books and CDs
and see if I can see anything they have in common that might make
them difficult to rip off like that.

What I was wondering...since most people want to use the designs for
their own person use, is there a way to make a CD that could not be
copied? A pic or number of individual pics could be transfered to an
application and then printed, but the entire CD itself could not be
copied by anyone. Another thing, is it possible to put a watermark
within the background of each graphic on a CD that is clearly present
but not to the extent that the watermark interferes with seeing the
lines of the design. For the purpose that most henna artist are
going to want to use a CD or something of the sort, the
watermark...if not too intrusive...would not be a barrier to use for
their purpose. But would/could if placing a watermark in the
background of each image deter someone copying and stealing the
entire CD content or even trying to pass the individual images off as
their own. I am wondering how cleverly something like "This image is
intended for your personal use. I must not be reproduced to be sold,
traded or otherwise misrepresented to be anything other than the sole
property of TapDancing Lizard Publications"...or something like "I
belong to TapDancing Lizard Publication. If anyone says otherwise,
please call:......." could be placed in a watermark in the
background. I wonder how visually disruptive words like that would be
if they were in cream or light grey or egg shell on a white
background. Lots of words typed across the page over and over again
in small print and light color can visually read as a background
pattern.

Anyway, just suggestions.
