Second it puts Magnolia and Ash through a lot of extra work because these people who feel that they have to copy what CH does!!!!!
However they a quite a few of us know enough about Magnolia and Ash, and what CH is all about, that we can spot a fake, and know not to deal with them!!!!
Yes, we may know who are the "Originals"...but the community is growing so fast...it is hard to keep track of everything that may be going on.
While it may be great to know people admire the work so much they are willing to plagiarize the site and copy (or try to copy) the actual work, it must be frustrating to live through it all. It takes a great deal of time and effort to make a legit business work, let alone sell items where its real worth is seemingly intangible. I honestly think that at some point, legal action may be the route to take. Some of these businesses aren't even legally registered. I applaud any type of new endeavor but please, be creative and genuine or at least give credit where it is deserved.
Exactly right!!!!! Besides it is not fair or right to take credit for someone else's hard work!!!!
