    Art theft - Disturbing article

    http://www.luclatulippe.com/2008/04/...illustrations/

    Here is a article that I discovered when browsing my favourites. As an artistic person (and not even that successfully) these sort of acts really piss me off.

    I thought that this would be a suitable site to share this on.
    my sketches here... http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=92997

    www.sevans.co.nz , for more images and to kill time.

    A whole book published with plagiarized material. That's quite unbelievable.

    Oh it feels so inviting to go Hulk and try to hunt them down. Although I find this project to be quite darring, I'm sure it happens all the time. Are we to come back to an era of giant watermarks on web-displayed artwork?

    Either that or incredibly low resolution.

    300x400 pixels... make a printable image outta that!

    What is that? 1" x 1.33" for print (300 DPI) I think. Yeah, that there would make an exciting art book. Nothing but nigh unrecognizable thumbnails, it'll sell like hotcakes!

    You can upscale images. Even images of an artist's standard res (in the field of 1000-1200 w and h) don't look noticeably bad to the layman. And you can make a smaller book too- plus, apparently alot of the images are only a few inches across.

    Yes, The Chinese are horrible at just outright copying crap. This is why I completely boycott ANY of there products.

    As a engineer, i've had to deal with these poeple before and have had stuff stolen from them before. Its not fun and all of your hard work, analysis, study goes out the door. ARG!

    anyways i hope things get better.

    Disturbing indeed.

    Gave me the not entirely unrelated idea: Register email addresses to social security numbers or home phone number / mobile etc, home address.
    Anonymity is killing original content on the net.

    I recently had some trouble with paypal where the commisioned work ended up not being paid for, as the email used to contact and commission it was different from the paypal one used to pay for it; thus paypal did not let the money go through and I ended up standing there having done the work with nothing to show for it.

    DAMN scammers ! : /

    With the difference of the product being sold. Dunno about you, but that ranks pretty highly for me.

    That'd be the difference between songs downloaded over some P2P program and albums being burnt and sold out of a van.

    Oh yeah it is! People say and do all kinds of stuff on the interwebnetz that they would never dream of saying and doing in real life.

    It is a shame when we have to feel restrained from sharing. I wish the artist(s) all the best.

    I thought that was sarcasm first, then I noticed it wasn't,
    Seems surreal somehow.
    So much silly, petty, theft on the net.

    this is kinda troubleing, taking someone elses work as your own is always a bummer for the artist that gets scammed.

    On a similar note did any of you guys hear about the orphan works bill?
    It's a bill that in a way legalizes copying the work of an artist as long as you say that you couldn't find them, of course it's difficult to determine whether they were or weren't found.

    I'm bad at explaining it but I got some web links that say more if your intereste (which you should be cuz someone may steal your work)
