    They are selling my art. What to do?

    Hello guys!
    Today I learned that Teedop is selling prints of a fan art I made for my portfolio.

    It's this piece:
    Name:  print.jpg
Views: 917
Size:  112.5 KB

    I contacted them but I got no answer yet.
    Any information about what I can do?

    Thanks for any information.

    I had this problem myself many times. Unfortunately there is nothing you can do, because even if you succeed in deleting this image from that site, the scammer will profit from this image on other sites. In fact, the scammer is probably already selling it on many different sites using different user names and using your image on different products (mousepads, canvas prints, postcards, etc). In the end, it's just a waste of time and energy to chase such scammers. Never give away your images in too high resolution, there is really no need for that.

    Thanks for the information! Yes, I will try to check the resolution in my portfolio to prevent this from happening again.

    It's fan art. Report the selling to the studio - they have bigger pockets.

    this is brutal.. sorry to hear. happened to me a few times too. i would post on that page and direct them to the actual art work. usually they take down the art quickly and/or i get new fans.
