Default Oh MY! STOLEN work

So look at both of these....see something familiar?????

*url removed by jenn balcer*

She stole my banner! Mamak made that for me with my OWN WORK. And she even airbrushed my watermark off one of the cards. Most of those cards were before I watermarked so they weren't on there, but one was and she removed it!

That is just so wrong and disgusting!!! Shame on her!

On a side note, it's it against SU! policy for her blog to be set up the way it is? With access to the catties and specials?

Oh, yes, she has multiple illegal issues with her site. Hmm...I think you should report it to SU! at least so they know it's illegally representing her business. They can't help with the image/banner theft, but the site is still illegal.

mamak found me a cease and desist thing on wikopedia that she has 24 hrs to remove it. She didn't even ask me. And she has me linked on her own blog so she knows who I am and reads my stuff.

Er, I sent her an email. I suppose I should have kept my nose out of it.. but sheeeeeesh! (I consider all of my SCS sisters as friends.) We all gather around like wagons circling...

The subject line was "Stolen images?"

This is the content of the message I sent:

Hey! Where did you get your banner from? A friend of mine just happens to have that exact same banner that was custom made for her. It also looks like you somehow have some of the same cards… with her watermark removed.

Hmmm.. isn’t that illegal?

Here’s her website:
http://emilygiovanni.com/

She’s on to you….

Kimberly

I'm so sorry this has happended to you. Have you tried e-mailing her and letting her know that she took your personal banner? I think that's terrible. Hope she makes this right.

I am so sorry Emily. That is just awful. Especially when you have something like that thats special to you and that is your work. I hope that she takes it down. I would hate to think that a person would purposely do this to another. Maybe there is some explanation??? I hope she removes it asap. -Samantha

Oh my! I can't believe somebody would be so bold to do something like that! Also, I agree that the links to the catalogs is completely wrong. She really does need to be reported! I'm willing to report her, but I don't want to step on anyones toes. Let me know if I should go ahead!

I'm afraid that I sent her an email also. I probably should keep out of it also, but I love your blog.

I looked again at her website and there is an email address. I think that we should all email her and tell her about this awful thing that she has done!

I'm sure Emily appreciates all of the support from y'all, but this situation is best resolved privately between Emily and the site owner. Thank you for your understanding.
