The stencil project is protected under international and federal copyright laws. People involved in violating the copyright of all or any parts of the stencil projects tangible form of expression without the permission citystreets do so at legal risk to themselves. This is our intellectual property and we plan on protecting it. Why the legal mumbo-jumbo? We are the original creators of the idea to stenciling outlines on city streets to raise awareness to pedestrian safety. No one understands this idea better than us. We care a lot about it, we want other people to get involved but we also want to insure that people maintain the integrity of the project. Thanks for understanding.
