And people wonder why I heavily watermark images I post!

Recommended Posts

Someone selling "antique" iron on patches on ebay has stolen some of my work!

I contacted the seller and told them to cease using/selling these.

 

This is why I've been using heavier watermarks on recent concepts.

That's unbelievable, I don't know why somebody would do that. Sorry you have to deal with this

They did end the ebay sales, but I'm sure I'll have to keep checking from now on.

It's still crazy you should have to be on the lookout for that. How did you get them to stop?

With the notice-

This listing was ended by the seller because there was an error in the listing

Whatever that may actually mean.

 

A number of years ago, in addition I took part on a forum about Madden & customizing the PC versions & I saw a design on there that was designed by a member here (Phil--I don't think he's been around for a while)--and while the guy wasn't selling the logos, he was offering them for download.

And maybe that would be okay in some cases--especially if credit is given, but I sent Phil a PM to let him know.

He messaged the guy on the other forum to stop it & take his logos down or give him credit

The other guy removed Phil's logos, then sent me a nasty PM, and made a snide comment in a thread about how he had done nothing wrong.

 

Hopefully the exchange wasn't as bad in this case as it was in that.

It got nasty

I just told him that they are my images and he needed to stop selling them or legal measures would be taken. I added a link to my original post so he could connect the names.

I never even heard back from him.

Well, they were up again tonight. This time I reported them to ebay for "infringing on my intellectual property." We'll see how that goes.
