It was brought to the attention of quite a number of Redbubble artists yesterday that a number of their artworks had been stolen and posted on the Pixdaus site by one of their users a Zafar1.
At least one of mine was amongst them and this was not the first time this person had stolen work of mine and posted it as their own.
I e-mailed Pixdaus and let them know it had started again, they removed the stolen work from the person’s portfolio and apologised to me, they also asked me to point out any other images that were stolen from me or another redbubble artist.
Today I found another of my images on the Pixdaus site and this one had previously been stolen by the other person Zafar1 last year, this time the Pixdaus user calls himself Kev and so I reported it as stolen as well.
I also left a note on the image saying it had been stolen from me, low and behold, some other supposed Pixdaus member jumped to his defence saying he probably didn’t know it wasn’t his photo and questioned whether it was mine.
Well he wouldn’t have cropped the bottom portion off the copied image to remove the Rodsfotos watermark on it if he was sure he was the owner of the image, if it is still on the Pixdaus site this is the URL
Bottom line is, please check your work on a photo comparison site like Tineye that tells you every place that image is posted on the internet, if you too find you are the victim of photo theft from one of the Pixdaus users, just write to the site and they will remove it.
IHAVE HAD A REPLY FROM THE PIXDAUS SITE AND THEY HAVE REMOVED THE STOLEN IMAGES AND BANNED THE PERSON WHO STOLE THEM, HOPEFULLY, THAT WILL BE THE END OF IT
