BEWARE, COPYCAT ! ! !

I am having

PROBLEMS

with a copy-cat artist

who just does NOT understand

that she can NOT use

my images, characters and style

to paint her own version

and offer these paintings as

ORIGINAL art.

I am ALWAYS delited

when someone is inspired by my art

but can get DANGEROUSLY upset and pissed off

when someone else copies my stuff

and boast about it ...

Grrrrrr ...

BEWARE !!!

I am starting to twitch !!!

Silent revenge ...

Got a headache,

copycat gal ?

Waiting and smiling ...

Muah ah ah ah !

It happens all the time on the internet Lulu. Unfortunately everything that is posted is considered like a public domain even if you have a (c) etc. etc. It's sad but there are those that do exactly what you said. Report to Blogger and see what they can do. Sorry to hear about this. Take care.

Although technically any art we do is automatically copyrighted, we have to have registered each piece individually to have legal recourse. Unfortunately, this is one of the downfalls of the internet. Also, it is very difficult to copyright a certain style of art, unless it is very, very distinctive. Sad but true. As we know by now, just saying we have a copyright and telling people not to use our images is pretty useless, unless we have the paperwork to prove it. In order to avoid copyright infringement, I have even contacted the artist to request permission to post my version of their tutorial. I don't know if people are ignorant or uncaring not to do so. You would also probably be very surprised to know where your art shows up on a Google search. I was searching pastel still life and my own art came up. Yikes.

LuLu - that just stinks. Let me say this: I am very sure her copied work does not begin to measure up to your fabulous original artwork. No way can she replicate it completely. There is LuLu juju she just doesn't have and never will. :) Xox! Pam

I agree with Pam. I've seen some things that LOOK like they were TRYING to duplicate your work...but they are lacking that specialness of YOUR talent.
(but stick a few more pins in for me too! teehee!)

Your passion comes through in your work. A copycats work will not reflect passion. Hope it all gets resolved soon.

I am there with you LuLu. Happens to me all of the time. Maybe my thinking on this will give you solace... A person who copies is not an artist at all, they are merely a copycat, real artists have original thought.
People like that will never be REAL artists.
Love your work and blog posts!
Hugs,
Lisa
