Art Theft . . the beat goes on . . ( please read) Greetings Fellow Deviants !Art Theft . . the beat goes on . . ( please read) by DouglasHumphries
It's taken awhile for the light-bulb to fully go on ------ but this ART THEFT thing runs much deeper than I thought.
I just left my computer 'sleeping' - only to come back and find a box showing that someone had opened my 'picture' files.
( and it wasn't me - so I can only assume that , though I have a good anti-virus, someone must have entered an open portal
and helped themselves to what ever photo files they desired ) So , not only do thieves steal work from sites like Deviant Art,
but , if they are computer savvy - they can take it directly from your machine ( why bother with a middle man and a smaller resolution image ? --- just go for the main TIFF or RAW file ) ---Am I paranoid ? ---I don't think so . As some of you know
- at least one of my pieces was stolen and is being sold on Amazon http://www.amazon.co.uk/Bottles-modern-canvas-print-ready/dp/B005RR953E/ref=s
