Hello! Once again, I must share with us the bad news ... But this time it is not like 'web' theft - this one is more real. Well, being in a store, I came across my works in the form of cards ... I experienced a shock! When I asked the dealer, who distributes the cards - I heard that an independent company, which appeared on the market recently ... Gained to contact them and will explain this matter in a few days ... What does not change the fact that it is a shame.
Jest mi niezmiernie przykro z tego powodu, liczę na to, że uda Ci się jakoś wychwycić tych ludzi :< Z tego co słyszałam, takie sytuacje się już kilka razy za devie zdarzały- tzn. ktoś umieszcza prace, a potem naglę widzisz ją w jakimś sklepie jako koszulkę (Reserved raz tak ukradło komuś obrazek, jeżeli dobrze pamiętam z 2-3 lata temu).
Is terrible, and totally unpleasant appose end forces you to watermark all your work ....
I attended a lot of comic conventions as speaker, and saw how others had stands where they sold products from business cards, shirts and all kinds of objects, with art that was here in deviantart, recognized him was because many times I see their galleries, is terrible that part where showing your work have a risk to a pirate -unscrupulous people take and realize business with it!
my goodness! its just getting worse. but on the brightside (if there is any -im trying really hard here, haha) think about how amazing and beautiful your work must be that people want to steal it... still. like you said. real shame.
Get a lawyer, if they use your art for profit they should pay you for it.
Anyway, I find it very annoying when people call copyright infringment "theft". It's such a cheap attempt at psychomanipulation. These are separate issues of different nature with separate laws dealing with them.
I was at a photo shop and I was printing my artwork which I was planning to sell on allegro and the guy that worked here was very enthusiastic about it and it got me kinda paranoid about him making his own physical copies of it or leaking the matrix into the internets. I would be rather annoyed if such copyright infringement would occur and would demand him to pay me at least as much as making a graphic on commission with unlimited release rights would cost.
So, I was planning to sell these at Allegro. [link] But I have discovered that I would have to start my own company and pay the gigantic ZUS tax, which I wouldn't be able to afford to pay. So, as an unemployed person, I cant get unemployment benefits, I can't even do small trade, so what a am I supposed to buy food for? This government is so horrible. I hope one day our own Breivik will come and deliver us from them.
