Hi!

I've just launched a small campaign against image stealing. The main idea is that people don't usually associate a certain picture with an author, and we should try to change that. We should try to educate, rather than simply bullying image stealers.

I've created a Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/356678121119787/, feel free to join.

You can use the photos available https://www.facebook.com/groups/356678121119787/photos/ as Facebook covers and profile pictures in order to spread the word.

Also, if you have examples of your work being stolen, you can post evidences in the group so we can discuss.

If you can help, please spread the word! It's a constructive way of protecting our creations.

Although I work for DT, the campaign is not connected to any agency and will never be. It's a photographers' appeal to general public, not an advertising campaign.

I was thinking of doing a tshirt on Zazzle that said front "Artists Created Originals" back "Plagiarists make bad copies" I don't think any one would buy it but it is true. When I see my drawings traced by other people  :o I just shake my head, they are usually very bad. Sometimes I think that people don't know they don't want to know they just want and art fills their hole.  8)

good for you! I joined your group. I started a page to promote my art and my name together as I found many tattoo's there of my art you may want to do that for your art too it is kinda neat that I can actually find fans people sometime take images they actually mean no harm and it is nice to reconnect me with my creations.
