I have today had notice that my ‘Ode to a rose on a sunset’ which was a collaborative feature with Mariska last month in Digital Art Compilations Group has had copyright infringed by someone going by the name of flower_chick on flickr, aledgedly also known as elena harris’ Photostream. Whilst it has now been removed, I have searched already and the profile although empty at present remains open. This is despite finding another alert link this morning
and another here through redbubble which gives the ccwri copyrights infringement form.
My thanks to Cynthia host of the Digital Art Compilation Group for quickly alerting me of situation after alerting both Flickr and Redbubble.com ; we are so lucky to have such nice people amongst us here. Thanks to Cynthia and the link she posted by the time I got there the account was already blocked – alas of course they could spring up under another name. This of course is a major worry when someone is trying to go through publishing process!
I think it would be good idea for all here at redbubble to be aware so please ensure your own circle of followers here has the opportunity to read and keep check on their own. In the meantime I know I would be most grateful if anyone sees anything at all relating to my own works that appears to have link to any other name other than with Mariska’s art or my own name, if you would kindly let me know so we can stop straight away and I shall do same for anyone else I notice…
Many, many thanks to all those who have helped in raising and supporting this campaign to both stop the abuse of our works and to raise awareness; your kindness appreciated!
There are many bubblers I cannot inform, as I am not in all groups and cannot follow or post to all people sadly, please help me to circulate this detail – someone else you know may be in similar situation as myself! Cheers now!
Message to the thief, yes you flower_chick/elena harris…or whatever other name we discover you using as no doubt we shall; if you are watching kindly take the rest of my life and live with my chronic pain day and night and live this life fully if you want to steal my writes! Whilst I appreciate you bringing more publicity to my works by doing this, by taking it you are taking one of the few pleasures left I have in life by stealing my writing. I sincerely hope you are proud of yourself! – anaisnais copyrights owner of Ode to a rose on a sunset.
Thief taking any redbubble works please read carefully for links to help protect you and those around you!
