I got ROBBED

Digitally.

Sometime in late 2008, I created this Vector of Manny Pacquiao



This was done late 2008. I created it to use as a reference for my wall stencil:



Look what turns up on EBAY



The dead sea wouldn't compare to HOW SALTY I'm feeling right now... If only THIS FOOL LIVED IN SO-CAL, I WOULD VANDALIZE HIS WHOLE F*CKING SHIT UP. But no, he's in TORONTO. BASTARD is LUCKY he's safe from ME where he's at.

Honestly, I have no clue if my case would be legit at all, though I do have the original Photoshop files on file, and the fact that the shirt image and mine ARE THE EXACT SAME. I can even point out the parts where I fucked up. But as you can see, this was made before I started putting copyright stamps on my digital images. Plus, he's in a different country. WHAT CAN I DO TO MAKE THIS BITCH BLEED?!?!?!?!

Re: I got ROBBED

Contact eBay with your case and evidence and see if they'll pull the auction. They've done that kind of thing before over intellectual property issues.

Luckily for you, and all other artists out there including myself, you don't have to put copyright stamps on your stuff in order for it to be copyrighted. According to current laws, unless you go on record stating that your work is public domain, it is automatically understood that said property is owned by you and under copyright. Now the fact that he is in Canada might be a problem. However, I'm fairly sure the Canadians have laws similar to our own regarding this so there might very well be avenues of legal recourse you can pursue.

I'd contact eBay and him. For all you know he may ave gotten it from someone else who is the actually stealer of the image.

I'd believe that if he was hosting dutch auctions, where masses of the same item is being sold. But instead he's selling only 3, individually. It leads me to think he's iron pressing or silk screening them...

I contacted and reported to Ebay the item numbers, but how the hell are they going to figure out that they're infringing upon my image? It's not like my image will suddenly pop up as highly trended on a google search...

I also sent a message to the auctioneer, asking if he makes the shirt. If he isn't, I'll ask him who is. If he is, I'll just spew some threatening rhetoric... If only he lived in L.A...

There's got to be a load of people on this board that live near him - just send the Trek Boys round, they can show the illogic of his ways!

Well, there's logic, and then there's a baseball bat.

The logic of a baseball bat is irrefutable!

It must be so annoying for you cyph, to have someone so obviously steal your work. It never ceases to amaze me how unscrupulous people can be!
