Apologies for a non-art post on my website, but I find this absolutely repulsive.
A Vietnam-based ‘company’, “Vintage Boy”, has stolen my artwork and used them as designs for their apparel without my permission. The Lana Del Rey vector designs (1,2) are both my own personal pieces, and the Lady Gaga sweaters are also both by me (1)— the second Lady Gaga one taking bits of pieces of my work and combining it with other elements.
I am absolutely sure that I’m not the only artist they have stolen from— if you take a look at their galleries, most of the art on there are popular artwork seen on Tumblr. If you’re an artist and your work has been stolen, please post on their wall and ask them to remove as well.
Here is a link to their Facebook page.
Please reblog and share this.
Well was your work copyrighted?
I see a lot of this kind of thing here on tumblr, & when the artist gets upset about their work being stolen, (which is a pain I understand, I’m an artist myself) they seem to forget about the legal aspect of this situation.
If you post your art online, yes, it is your intellectual property, but it’s going to take a lot of legal action to get anything done about this, especially if your work isn’t copyrighted.
The best thing to do in this situation is lawyer up, not post about it on tumblr. Get yourself a GREAT lawyer who can do something about this, because getting notes ain’t gonna solve a damn thing.
