Stolen Images...COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT!!??!


I thought I would do my part and help spread the word on an unfortunate situation affecting many artists in the illustration community. A Japanese (allegedly fake) bookmaker just released a illustration compilation book named "Colorful Illustration 93 C. They basically just ripped off a large amount of illustrator's work and stole all the exclusive interviews from Darren Di Lieto over at the Little Chimp Society. This is bad news. The ISBN is fake as is the phone number on the book. They knew they were doing illegal activity and really covered their tracks.

Here are some links:

Darren's post on the issue
Luc Latullipe's in depth post

PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE THIS BOOK!!!!!

take care,
-francis

P.S. All artist should also become aware of the situation with the Orphan's Work bill and the effect that it will have on how we handle our artwork.

Hi Francis,

Thanks loads for finding my blog and the comment. We were just browsing your work, my wife and I, and it just blows me away! I think you have a couple of fans here! ;)

BTW, this book is a disgrace. Good job on letting people know.

All the best

Aly.

You're absolutely right, that's just wrong! I can't believe these people have the nerve to make money off other people's hard work (hundreds of hours painting) and interviews to make profit. As an art community, all artist and fans should really look into that "Orphan's Work" bill. Read it through at least once and make sure to follow up on writing your congress men, etc. We need to work together to prevent this Orphan Work becoming a bill. Who has the funds and time to register every piece of work you create? It's bad new everyone. Cheers!
