This past weekend, I found out 2 of my WWE fanarts were stolen and made into wrestling shirts on TeePublic. Needless to say, I was royally pissed off.
You can see how blatant the ripoff is: twitter.com/sajcfan/st…
I rarely make and post artwork here and it barely gets views or comments, which I'm fine with since I don't post here as frequently as I used to. The fact that someone went and basically mass produced my artwork under their name without my permission is infuriating. I contacted TeePublic and they managed to take the listings down and deleted that (DDTShirts) account. I also called them out on their FaceBook page and that went down within hours.
Last year, my Starbecks logo was copied and edited by another DA user, and it popped up on Google's search results like a fan-made wallpaper. I didn't even know this happened until a r/SC user posted his Becky Lynch fan sign for Smack Down. I didn't mind that person using my design (he made it for his daughter who's a huge Becky Lynch fan) but it bothered me to see that it was edited and shared without my permission or credit.
It's pretty discouraging but... I don't think I'm going to post here for a while.
