    I just found out I'm being ripped off...

    Last night I did a GIS on Lord Dubu to see what happened... an to my shock and dismay I discovered the following links:

    Shock and dismay because that cute little girl in a hanbok is mine. I drew her for my daughters first birthday invitations. And now someone is using her without my permission to sell their knock-off Korean merchandise in the phllipines.

    OK... so... uh... now what?

    Get a lawyer, I suppose? But good luck getting enough compensation out of their cheapskate business. The best you can hope is making them stop using your work.

    I'd do up a fake cease and desist from a fake legal firm and see what I can make happen with that first... but I'm not really a font of useful suggestions in this realm.

    Looks like a strongly worded email to the web host was sufficient. They took down the posts linking to the images.

    Yeah, if strongly worded emails don't work, DMCA take down notices are VERY effective for US based hosts in my experience.
