Please respect our copyright

Light Bulb Languages offers all its resources to all users completely free of charge.  The website and all its resources are, though, subject to copyright.

This morning I have had to report 3 resources to TES Resources.  The user was asking for payment for Light Bulb Languages resources.  The resources were not created by them and they have no right to make money from our resources which we make available for free.

Please please please do not upload any of our resources to TES Resources or to any other 3rd party website, whether the resources contained there are free or not.

For your reference, our copyright statement:
