I was inspired to make this video after a recent discussion one of the forums about woodworking plans being pirated and then resold on compilation DVDs. This is an important issue that is bigger than I thought. Woodworkers who spend a lot of time and effort creating projects are getting seriously shafted by scammers selling “thousands of plans on one DVD.”
I have written a rather lengthy article about woodworking piracy to accompany this video. I strongly urge you to read it and pass it on. It is also available in a printer-friendly PDF format.
Also, other LumberJocks and I have been assembling a list of reputable web sites where you can get honest woodworking plans. Please feel free to link to it however you like.
We can’t stop people from ripping off work but by getting the word out, Tweeting and posting to Facebook, we may make a dent. Buyers need to be informed of the hardships they cause honest guys.
