I have just found out that a large company which sells posters on the internet is selling my work, sounds great doesn’t it? It would if I had ever given my permission to use my images or if I had ever received any royalty payments.

I would suggest that you all just do a quick internet search on your name and see what comes up.

I have written and emailed this company and I wait to see what the outcome of my letter will be, I will keep you posted.

    I am sorry to hear that Steve. Good luck.

  • Hi deborah, it has been sorted, it turned out that a company I supplied images to actually started a new company. It would have been nice if they had notified all the people who supply them with the images.
    Suffice to say that any sales i will still receive payment

    Steve,
    Would you mind sharing the company name? This has happened before to a number of our members and when we know the name of the company, we contact the company and support your objection to having your work used without permission. This has helped a number of members get the problem solved. The RedBubble Community sticks together on this to help each other when something like this happens. Please do keep us posted.

    So at the moment I won’t name them, I think this is just a stupid mistake on their part. If however anything alters I will indeed name them.

    hi Steve, after reading this I had a scroll through the net and guess what I found a site “cheapcheckdesigns” selling one of my works for prints and cards, I have written to the b`s now waiting for a reply .. I was so mad .. spitting feathers I was. Would you please give me the name of the company involved with stealing your work so that I can check it out .. it is so unfair .. we all work hard to create our stuff and we all deserve to get paid for it .
    hugs Angel xx

    I normally search with my own name or my nickname which I sometimes use on my images. I have also downloaded Tineye (just Google it), this software allows you to right click on you image select Tineye and it checks the internet for similar/very similar images. i say similar images because people can crop your images as well.

    Give it a go and see what you get, you might be surprised.

  • It’s amazing how Tineye locates and compares images so quickly, unfortunately if they have put a low res image on it doesn’t always pick them up.
