Warning To All Artists!

I found a few of my artworks for sale on Chinese art websites! They're also selling it on alilibaba.com

It took me several days to get it removed!

Check this eCommerce site to see if anyone sells your art without your permission!

How did you get it removed? Please elaborate if possible since taking action and getting results is the most stifling task in copyright infringement. Thank you for posting this important topic.

I contacted the listing/website owners and asked them to remove it or I'll report copyright infringement to alilbaba.com

That was enough for them to remove it real quick.

Also, search your own art on Google. I found the frauldelant links buried in Google images.

How do you even find them?

You can use the Google image search feature - using an image URL it will find instances of the same and similar images. I found two copyright infingements a while ago on one of my works: a person had painted a copy and sold it (he claimed he didn't know the work was copyrighted, the person asking for the commission gave him the image). The second was almost more annoying: a blogger, of course with copyright notices all over their site, using the same pic for their blog, and totally misrepresented the work!

So yes do check periodically for any of your more prevalent/popular works.

Regards,
Dale
