BINGO ... you put forth the effort, creativity & expense to produce the work ... they put forth the effort to find it & steal it.

The incidental halo effect (even if intentionally applied) is much like painting over rust. Yeah, if you just focus on the shiny superfluous presentation, you can gloss over the fact that the integrity underneath is lacking in quality ... and the paint job (credit given) is simply a cover up so you won't see how much is really wrong with what's underneath ... it's a diversion tactic.

Plain & simple ... finding your work posted elsewhere with credit is just like someone saying, "Hey bud ... I took your work without asking." Claiming "fair use" is just a way of saying "screw you, it's all about me (pretending to be about others)" and there's a BS law that I can cite that people will "fall for"... and unless you've got the gumption to do anything about it, "too bad, so sad ... next victim, please".
