Worked for getting past ACX review, very helpful.
Protect My Work was started by two web designers who found that when pitching graphic designs to potential clients, some would steal those designs and have them developed by others agencies. As design creatives we understand the time, love and care you put into your work and how wrong it is for others to steal that work and use for their own gain.
Protect My Work is a strong deterrent against the theft of your work. Once you can quickly prove ownership of your creative work, in most cases, it stops continued use of your work without your permission.
