So. I have an art thief. Right here: www.cafepress.com/sk/TheSupern…
NOT BUY THIS PERSON'S PRODUCTS. I have reported them to Cafepress.com already for copyright infringement.
I am not flattered. I am not pleased. I am just really, really annoyed.
Note that the image they are selling is mine. I am not making any money off of this artwork that I created. I did not give them permission to do this. I do not approve of this use of my artwork. I did not authorize it in any way, shape, or form. Hell, *I* can't even sell prints of this artwork on DA, due to the rules they have regarding fan-art! Why should anyone else have that privilege?
As of now, I've put my artwork into Storage mode, except for a few art trade/gift pieces, and some recent works that I don't think would make very good t-shirt designs anyway. I've disabled comments on everything. If you have something you need to say to me, send me a Note. Or comment on this journal. Whatever.
I'm furious right now. I'm going to have to go through my settings on this gallery, one image at a time, and make sure that the "download full-size" option is DISABLED, which it was SUPPOSED TO BE on the stolen image, but thanks to the way DA keeps changing everything around on this site every few weeks, it was NOT. I am. Beyond. Pissed.
Once I get my own site up and running, I will be removing everything from this gallery. Everything. And then I will be deleting it. It's obvious that the only way I can prevent people from stealing my art is by putting a bazillion watermarks all over it and uploading only tiny, low-resolution versions of everything.
I fucking hate people.
In other news, I will be home from Korea in about a month. o/ Yay.
