I think it’s about time to write a post about the art theft I’ve been suffering regarding my Ons material and during this year which isn’t decreasing at all.
I’m a person who doesn’t mind repost or modifications (like graphics or so)of any of my art, it’s okay, it’s also okay if you use it as an avatar on tw and no giving me any credit ( though I highly appreciate when you do it) but I don’t mind if you don’t, as long it’s for personal use it’s fine.
The things I don’t tolerate it’s when you use my art for any commercial purpose, ripping my designs and making keychains , dakimakuras, posters, cushions and a large etc I’ve found it on internet. Or when you upload the pic as if you were the author <–PLEASE DON’T!
I’m very aware that my art has been and it’s been sold via ebay, aliexpress, taobao, amazon, etsy …etc And no, THEY DON’T HAVE MY PERMISSION, THEY AREN’T ME. My only owned store is the one on Tictail (which I’m planning to reopen) and Toranoana Stores which have my permission to sell my designs. Taking down the merchandise from these webpages previously mentioned, you need to provide lot of personal papers and then the webpage decide if you’re or not saying the truth. Closing one shop is difficult than opening one //that’s why no one cares about taking down it’s own art, it’s very difficult, consumes so much energy and when you close one, other 3 appear 8) A no ending circle.
I´ll highly appreaciate if you don’t buy from these people. I know it’s cheaper but for any purchase you make from them, it’s a loss for me.
Today I received 3 messages about different kind of art theft from my work…I’m very angry and sad… Thank you for reading and for the support you give me. It’s my day a day energy.
