damned thieves...

Journal Entry: Thu Sep 3, 2009, 6:51 AM
Gallery l Watch Me l Note Me

Well, it's long time that I don't write a journal on dA, but I need to show my anger in this way...
I'm bored and tired to see my photos on many another site, blog and everywere on the warnings are not read, my watermark seems invisible and me and my work aren't respected...
there are a lot of types of thieves, some of them steal the work of the other people for sell like personal work, many others steal the photos for embellish the personal site, blog and so on...and the worse thing is that often this thiefs manipulate the original work and make collage and horrible alterations that destroy our work, especially if they take a picture that show our face...
for that reason today I have decided to delete some of my selfportrait in my gallery because for me, when stupid people steal one of my selportrait and publish it on another site is like to steal my identity, and this make me so angry, disgusted, irritated and frustrated...

My works are not stock images, they are not free for use. You may not use my works in any manipulations or designs inclusive but not exclusive to manipulation artworks, websites, layouts, wallpapers, banners, blogs, CDs, posters, icons, etc.

I have yet to find any of my work on other sites or used in such a way. This is perhaps because I put a watermark and/or because mine are not as interesting to people.

I can't tell you how many times though that I have reported stolen artwork of other artists here on dA. I really wish people would learn how to make their own art. :|

I'm sorry for what you are going through :hug:

Ora a costo di sembrare impicciona e di essere insultata dirò la mia xD Tu hai una galleria veramente molto bella, ed è ovvio che faccia gola, sono cose che succedono ovunque i furti, anche ai grandi artisti no? Chi ruba e spaccia per propri lavori non suoi è da eliminare dalla terra, sono d'accordo con te e chi non credita idem. Ma da creatrice di layout wall etc. odio a mia volta chi non da il permesso di usarli per partito preso. Posso capire foto personali o a cui ci si tiene. Ma negare sempre a tutti e comunque il permesso di usarli non lo trovo giusto. Puoi dettare regole precise e vedere caso per caso, vedere il lavoro finito e decidere dopo. Il coltello ce l'hai sempe dalla parte del manico tu. E anche così non avresti cmq la certezza che nessuno la usi in modo improprio, ma quello è lo scotto del metterle su deviant. Se uno non vuole accada nulla del genere se le vende per i fatti suoi, se è molto bravo no? Se no con tanta pazienza si mette lì e decide che fare. Te lo dico perchè o visto gente che per testardaggine ha iniziato ad eliminare foto ed è finita col chiudere account blog etc. E questo non è giusto nè per chi crea, come te, nè per chi in quei lavori ci ha visto del bello e te li ha favvati o commentati.

I hate too this type of people, yes, you should make that, but it's useless because is very difficult to convince them to delete our photos :(

I hate this kind of theft...I can imagine how angry you feel about it, especially with the self portraits.
I am sure you have done this already...but I recommend you report the site to its host as I have been in this situation before and had images removed from a blog.
I feel irritated for you :heart: :hug:

yes,but often I can't contact the people that have used my photos because there aren't e-mail address or other way to contact them and often they are Polish, Japanese and I don't understand nothing that they writes...
anyway thanks for support, it's greatly appreciated :heart: :kiss:
