Uh oh..... I don't like that bit!

RB, please advise us how we can opt out of “Sharing”…

Tumblr doesn’t share, it steals! Just like Pinterest, lots of my work is on Tumblr without my permission, without acknowledgement of me as an artist, and without a link to RB. And what if I don’t really want my work on Google+, Facebook, or Twitter? Do I have a choice???

Everything else is awesome, but this is very bad news!

Response from RB:

“If you’d like to prevent people from pinning your item on Pinterest then you can change this setting in your ‘Account Details’ page.

The remainder of the share options aren’t able to be switched off I’m afraid. The ‘share’ button gives people who like and appreciate your work the opportunity to share them via these social networks, and in turn garner greater exposure for your work.

The default Tumblr, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter settings also attribute the work to the artist on Redbubble, and should an interested party take a fancy to the design they can use this information to find and purchase it…

It might be worth noting that only a low resolution version of your design is shared, which looks great on a webpage, however would be no use at all if anyone wanted to print a physical copy of the design."

Sigh…
