Additional policies

Boring Copyright/Intellectual Property rant from Beanforest:
I’m sensitive to the creative process and I take intellectual property rights seriously. As such, if I have any art or ideas here or on my other links that have grabbed your interest, please message me and maybe we can work out usage rights or team up on a project. I’m friendly and reasonable. Seriously, few things bum an artist out more than seeing their ideas straight-up stolen. If I find somebody stealing my stuff, I promise I am no longer friendly and reasonable.
LIKEWISE! If there’s anything in this store or associated links that you feel has been taken from somewhere else, please bring it to my attention! I can assure you it wasn’t intentional, but inspiration is a fickle thing and it’s impossible to track every single memory and influence.
