Theft of My Work by Someone on DA

Journal Entry: Fri Sep 5, 2014, 7:45 PM
Check out this lovely person:

He claims he took this on his cell phone - notice it still has  my signature and copyright symbol in the lower right hand corner of the Chrysler Building on the right!


Here is my photo, wow, it has my signature and copyright on the lower right and corner too!  

I found him courtesy of  tineye.com/

Well, actually they haven't been Catherine, not yet any way. The account is still here. The guy hasn't been on DA in a long time.

I really don't understand it. I guess he was trying to get attention and praise. What good is all that if the work belongs to someone else?

I guess he thought no one would catch him. Most thieves aren't very smart.

Probably. If they were smarter, they wouldn't be thieves.

Or even the Green Goblin, Neil Ross's version not the one from 2002. That one's awful.

Ha! It seems to me like there are real villains out there who are worse.

And 2002's Green Goblin isn't the only awful villain from a film I liked but he is also partially one of a few villains I like in animation.

Well, after what I've been encountering lately, not so unbelievable Gloom. Still, leaving my watermark on 'his cell phone' photo is pretty ridiculous. It looks like he hasn't been on DA in a while - guess he wasn't getting enough attention.

Thank you very much Allen. Well, I expect it will be dealt with eventually, things don't happen quickly on DA.

epic fail on their part to not remove the signature. To bad they are no longer active here... won't even see the post I left going off on them!
