Update: My photo has been removed, as requested.
When I first started blogging I made a sign that someone else had made and posted on their blog. This person was quick to tell me that it was her intellectual property and that I had no right to copy it. I disagreed but I removed my version, that I made with my own two hands, and apologized. There is a fine line between stealing someones property and making a version of your own, but at the time I didn't know any better. Now there are even websites and blogs that show off knockoffs! If the Etsy poster had of asked, I would have given her permission to use my photo any way she wanted to.
I know it happens all of the time, but someone has stolen my photo, of my work, and is selling the photo on Etsy! Really?
I don’t know why anyone would want it, it’s not a particularly good photo, but they’ve taken my watermark off and added their own. Sheesh, she should have asked and I would have said yes, use it.
I’ve sent the offending party a message to remove it from their sale site, let’s see what happens.
Here is the photo they took, which clearly has my watermark on it.
Thank you to WolfSilverOak for letting me know.
