I am so pissed off: One of my works protected by copyright has been (awfully) copied by a 17 years old girl (kateemmajonesart.tumblr.com). And she is also so shameless that she published it through Tumblr Open Arts (tumblropenarts.tumblr.com), which is how I figure it out.
I have no problem with copying something; that’s cool and it’s even flattering. What I do think is rude is not recognizing it as a copy and using that image as her own in social media. Especially because she also published it through Tumblr Open Arts which is a website that has an intention of international self-promotion and therefore a commercial approach. And it’s worse, because that website demands original art that doesn’t infringe copyright and she did it any way.
