All files removed from 4Shared

I'm sorry to have to tell you this, but I have removed all of my digital scrapping files posted here on the blog from 4Shared.

They emailed me that my account has been repeatedly reported to offer unlicensed copies of, or been engaged in other unauthorized activities relating to copyrighted works. The files they notified me about were 2 striped 12x12 papers. Stripes. Get real. While my husband wanted me to fight them, I just don't want to be involved in such negative energy. I'm no longer creating digital scrapping items and haven't added anything here in a dog's age... so, since 4Shared also said that this would be my last warning (2 notices of abuse?) and that any further violations would lead to permanent blocking of my account, I decided to pull everything off. If stripes (seriously? Stripes?) are an infringement of copyright, then it was just a matter of time until the person accusing me decided to go after everything, lock, stock & barrel, perhaps even suing me. (I gave this stuff away for free... and never have gotten to the $100 minimum limit with the Monetizing... I can't afford to be sued, trust me.)

I'm sorry if people have been downloading these files, all this time, even though I haven't added any more... I'm certainly amazed if that has been the case... but for the foreseeable future, there will be no further downloads available.

Thanks in advance for your understanding, and please don't send me hate mail... I just don't want negative energy to suck out everything positive from my life.
