Polyvore update

Journal Entry: Wed Dec 26, 2012, 10:10 AM
My friends,

As you can see, all bar one (which I have been assured by the Polyvore admin will be removed by tomorrow) of my works have been removed.

I thank you again for being there for me and supporting me through this nightmare, it means a lot to me. No doubt there are lots more of my works I've yet to find being butchered on there, I will report them as I find them to the respective admin. I've spent the best part of my day filling in report forms, my head feels like it's been tightened in a vice and my eyes feel like they've had sand thrown in them..

If you see your works on there report them immediately, don't bother arguing with the users, they are obviously going to respond negatively in the most part, this has to be expected, I too received an offensive email from one user who I won't name because it's quite obvious who I am referring too, I chose to ignore it, no need in feeding an uncontrollable fire...

We don't want a war, we just want respect, these people must realise that the work they are using in these 'sets' belongs to somebody?
I don't want  the rest of my days spent filling in copyright forms & chasing my works all over the internet!

I have read your comments and taken heed of a few of your ideas, so thank you for that.. I think a reduced size and a larger watermark will be used in my future works, I hate the things but if that's what is needed to keep these headaches away then so be it!

I've also noticed that my shadowness account seems to be the source used for lifting my work, so I am now seriously considering closing that account.

Once again, thank you kindly for all your words of support here :hug: :ahoy:

I'm a little behind on all my journals, so when you say they were supposed to be removed... at least one still worked and opened. I'd check again. Thought you ought to know.

Normally I am optimistic but war is war. A war you can never win, you always loose. Even if it is only time and energy you loose. But no battle comes without lost.

One last comment I have to make, because I just today take a book out of my shelf and what do I find in that book? An image what the guy who called us cyber terrorist used in his statement. The image with the cards. It is called Game of card and it is from Linda Bergkvist
[link]§ion=&global=1&q=game+of+cards#/d28hzy
I knew, when I read the statement from this guy, that I had seen the image somewhere before, but did't knew until this morning, where. Now I know.

Good that you had a little bit of success. Good luck for the future.

Hello, CONGRATULATIONS! you did it! Very good! That's the way to fight against art theft. I'm glad you were successful!
I know that takes much time and much power, too but it's worth it. Only this way the art thieves realize what a copyright means! (hopefully!!!) If you would have given up they had wonn, now you are the winner! I wish you good luck furthermore! :hug:

Don't listen to the others, keep your work watermark free man.. It kills the art. This stuff is unfortunate, but absolutely standard in this digital art. Have a word with the ripper / site admins, move on to the next project 8-)

but you are right, smaller version and bigger watermarks maybe help. I don't like that either...but it is probably the only thing you can do.

I know a lot of people would hate it if you'd close down your Shadowness account, but if I were you I would still close it. It seems people treat it like a stock recourse.

I am very happy that 90% of your art has been removed by the admin of that site, Paul. It would be a very wonderful thing if people could be made aware more often, that what they are doing by taking others work is very wrong and that they are breaking the Copyright law and committing a criminal act. I don't think everyone knows or understands that this is wrong. It is a pity that there are so many language barriers and that some may understand the Copyright Laws and there are others that may not. If it was at all possible to get everyone to understand maybe open up a journal in their own language here on DA and who is willing, explaining, that taking someone else's art and breaking the Copyright Law is wrong and NOT o.k. and to leave it up for a month or so.There are a lot of people that visit many members on a daily basis and this may just get through to some and it may spread the word, thus making this continued problem more aware to others and more frequently. I don't know, maybe it could work or maybe not. Is there a short and sweet version of the rules which carries a lot of punch, which possibly could work? Just a thought.

Thanks for the update. Good to hear the admins removed the stolen pictures. I just don't understand how one even gets the idea to use already manipulated photographs - copyrighted - in lazy 5-minute mashups. *sigh* I wish you all the best and a lot of energy for the new year. I hope to see some new art from you in 2013, you hear me? ;)

I hate Polyvore! I wish there was some way of holding the administration responsible for sites like these. After all the whole purpose of the site is to encourage people who are obviously NOT creative to become creative using other artists stolen work. If it is not art being used then it seems to be company fashion photography. Seriously what is the point of these sites?

I am really glad you have had success getting all your work removed Paul. It sure is a headache filling out those forms. Feels like we are being somewhat punished for simply wanting to protect our rights!

Cheers
