Yesterday I made a post about an Amazon seller using one of my art pieces for their own gain. We have resolved this issue. However there are other pieces off Society6 the store is selling knock offs of. I hope the creators are active in looking for fakes and notices sometime soon.
Anyway, I’m greatly suprised and greatful it took so little time to resolve my issue.
Long time since I did one of these posts. Yes I am still alive. I have been working on art mostly and being lazy.
Anyway lets get to the point of this post:
I was searching Conspurgatory on Google today and realized Society6 (the real one) is in a partnership with Amazon on selling some of their products.
This I am fine with. What I am not fine with is the (I’m assuming) Chinese retailer selling one of my designs as a cheap rip-off. I get no commission for that. They stole that and I’m pretty sure if someone did order that, and since they do not have the proper image I uploaded, the buyer would be getting a really shitty looking design.
While I am somewhat flattered my art got stolen (like some sort of initiation into being a “real artist”) I am mostly disgusted. I have contacted both the Amazon seller and Society6 on this subject. I shall wait the reccomended two days Amazon wants before I continue my hunt to remove this product from the site.
Insert big sigh here.
I make art because I love it. I also love feeding my cats and myself and my man. That requires money. If my only source of income is being stolen I will pitch a fit.
Thanks for viewing,
