Image Sleuth / Re: Too Fast Apparel

If you haven't put your art online don't do it! This is not worth it. People trace a tracing of a tracing and they feel they have a right to it, legally I could win would it be worth the time I doubt it because the reality is there are more Annabelle Bow types stealing makes money morals are outdated. This is a good example of what I never expected when I uploaded something that meant something. I never expected Inked magazine would be selling stolen versions of my art but why not there are so many jerks

I am going to check into that as the concept is mine this is a derivative I am just placing mine over theirs now, but how so you prove some is ripping off your work while trying not to rip off your work so they change this a little of that and they think they created something they did not. Thank you for your input, it is obvious that this work is using my work to inspire their forgery. It is a disgusting way for a company to avoid paying for art

they took image number one put them together copied bone elements and replicated them, there are so many hand drawn hand traced then digitized then hand drawn, it is not a good rip off

Here first see how different you can make my art

Of course I contacted them they claim that it does not even look that much like my art they asked how long have you been selling it as we have represented this artist for awhile. It is a direct theft where the skeleton's fit directly and the bones in my drawing were used to make the roots and leaves of the cannopy. This company first defended themselves by saying well its royalty free, well royalty free is not t-shirts and I am the only one that can authorize them

my stuff is up there too I am a feature for vector stock for Halloween jerk holes. This is why I will never be able to get people to stop starting businesses with my illustrations. I hate people many days, Esty every day I hate them more and places like pirate bay are so numerous that I can not compete with them over my own images. And here I thought that having affordable art would be great people would buy it nope they steal it over and over again. Now I am making shirts in my basement hoping that my local market will embrace me.

I will never draw another piece of art and upload it to any company, SS is happy to just make their money they don't care that my files are every where with their file names they just like to say how do you know they came from us well because they are listed as SS files by SS file numbers that is how I found thousands of sites stealing my work and giving it away like it was theirs to share. In a world with no understanding of community property this is funny as so many jerks seem to think I am community property.

I just hate people companies that profit from my stolen art are happy to keep on rollen in the dough I think it is a part of business plans now how much money they get that is not refunded just pocketed. Esty, Ebay are no better then people selling good out of their trunks they know they are thieves and it makes them money.

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.

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)

Boy was I surprised to find over a dozen different uses for my stolen art. Esty takes a hands off approach meaning they expect you to search for your files being used. Good luck with that, I have a series that people love to steal and sell and claim to be the artist and it is so identifiable that it is easy to search for, so I can find the jerks out there. But the other two thousand drawings I did are probably the same and I will never find them, if your a photographer it would be hard to sort though the thousands of pages with similar content. I am starting to hate companies that want to make money and don't want to be responsible for their content in any way. I mean before I found the image thanks to a fan I didn't know that ESTY would be somewhere I would be forced to visit regularly to find my own images they also prefer you contact the members your self directly.
So in the end I feel like an idiot for dreaming that I could draw people would buy it I could draw more, I could eat regular and stuff, I am a fool for ever uploading my images to be for sale, and now I am stuck with the obsession of defending my images rights. This image has earned me 45 dollars it took me a year, I find it everywhere. I want to not be filled with anger, yoga helps but I have to pay for it, I wish my images came with a tax for thieves so I could pay for my therapy.
I have sent this company a take down message for two years they just figure out a new way to sell it

Ok They had an explanation that was acceptable they forgot to proof the ready images and replace them with the images that they bought to replace it.

Ok they have contacted me I am waiting to find out how this happened

Gosh darned, that is fantastic. I am so frustrated with them as illegitimate links are the most dominant for me, it is almost impossible to find my art from a legit source as the pirates get much better traffic than I could ever hope for

I found these guys about a year ago selling my art on ebay. Contacted them they took it down sold them a new drawing that they could use instead and they are back selling unauthorized image on t-shirts.

Nice that this person was caught but I wonder how many others are doing this?  I would of thought the sites could use software to stop this happening.  I hope they give any money earned to the copyright holder.  This isn't nice for the buyers either, I presume their RF license is worthless if the copyright holder hasn't sold it?
Too Many, too too many. It drives me nuts

« on: May 14, 2012, 19:02 »
Oh, I am trying to learn in therapy how to accept that my vectors are much more popular for people to steal than pay for. It is astonishing when you get to digging, I can only dig in small doses, send one rude email a day, cry in doses, and try very much not to hate people. I started a facebook posting all of the tattoo's I have found, I hate all of the teenagers that think a google search is a creative process. My advice do your best to shut them down, don't obsess too much lest it drive you mad.
I just had to stop searching for my files, two ebay businesses, two tattoo sites and one belligerent teenager, I am helping myself by reading your story so I don't feel so alone.

Adobe Stock / Re: Fotolia cuts commissions again
« on: January 20, 2011, 18:14 »
They have been going down hill just the direction of Istock, I deleted my files from Istock years ago and today the last of my Fotolia files are gone. With their recent deal Deviantart there was just no point in leaving my files up there. My files haven't sold well there for over two years, no extended licenses lower prices all I sold were subs for less than SS.
Good luck to those who stay.


Thank you. They do have my images. I have let SS know. Lets hope they have some success with these sites. There are so many.
That was October 11th. Have you had any response from SS? Have they taken any action yet?

They seemed to have some success with some, thing I think I am realizing is that it is never gonna end. My most popular work is going to be stolen without regard. A friend said something very wise while counseling me in my anger and surprise, he said that "many people are like squirls hoarding nuts just stealing everything they can get their hands on without a care in the world believing they have done nothing wrong it isn't stealing to them they feel they have a right to it."

My computer died and I don't know what is going on until I can afford a new one.

That made me giggle. I think  that the US gov loves to earn money they do need it, to not collect taxes is like mmm hell freezing over, or world peace, unicorns. ::)

DeviantArt are real jerks too about taking down infringers of copyright. I have been trying to get images pulled from them for over a month. They have no customer service just bots and autorun crap. I guess its time to pull my port from Fotolia.
