Stolen Art works

Tue Jan 15, 2013, 4:59 PM
Thank you to all of you for informing me about Hidden Supplies, it seems that they have taken one of my images along with many other fanart from different artist and was selling it online as well as at conventions.

At first I was really mad and pissed, but then I learned that they apparent gotten permission from some artist to sell their works there. I can't speak for the other artist that had their works sold by them as some clam that they did give permission for their art to be sold by them. But I feel that there might be other stolen works other than mine, since they didn't contact me for permission.
I'll contact them about it, and ask them to take my work down, if you recognize some of the artworks that are on display, inform the artist and see if they gave permission or if its stolen : )

Thanks to all of you for contacting me about it, and thank you yuumei for providing the prove and photos, you can check out Her Journal for more photos from the convention: )

  I have had this happen to me as well, when I was little my parents would have me enter competitions, they also opened a website for me, and some woman had stolen all my abstracts and had them mounted on canvas, I was only eight their heartless. You should put the watermark for safety, I know it kinda ruins the illustration but people be thieving, and it would also narrow it down to the individuals who purchase these items from you, then you can really nail them.

Unfortunately, we see these guys (or someone similar to them) at most conventions here in Germany. We're already curious to see which seller will be at the Leipzig Book Fair and how much stolen art (not only fan art but original, unlicensed stuff) they'll have along...

They're making *thousands* of Euros off these stolen art products...

Along these lines... I have noticed that an iphone wallpaper app "wallpapersHD" sometimes has your artwork on it, ("Dragon Boy" is one I've seen specifically) making it available for a free iphone background. Were they given permission to use your work? I rather doubt that they are profiting by it since it's a free app with free backgrounds, but I have been meaning to let you know anyway, just in case. :)
