Someone stole my art!
I just googled my name and someone stole a bunch of work from my gallery and posted it on some website. I'm freaking out! I don't know what to do. Can anyone please help??
This is the link to that site- [link]UPDATE-
The pictures were removed. But my God I can't believe how rude and nasty this person was to me! Seriously! The first email I sent to request the pictures removed was firm because I didn't want to be taken advantage of, but in no way was it nasty. The reply I got was kind of nasty and defensive, and they wanted proof that I was the artist. I didn't want to fight with this person, so I spent a good hour typing a calm and carefully worded reply to be respectful and explain my opinion and reasoning as to why I wanted my art taken off of a porn site when I didn't put it there myself. And I asked that my opinion be respected, and inquired what I could do to prove my identity. I got some nasty reply about how basically stupid I was, how I was wrong about pretty much everything, and had no rights because the art was fanart. They concluded with, "I decided they [my art] aren't worth fighting over. So fine, they are deleted. Good riddance to them and to you."
I'm happy my art was removed, but I'm kind of pissed at the way I was talked to. Moreover I'm shocked at this person's attitude. I would think someone running a website would be at least somewhat civil and respectful. A part of me wonders if this is some porn-addicted 20-year-old who got pissed that someone didn't want their art on his porn site. Very juvenile. I'm kind of tempted to post the emails here to see if anyone thinks I'm blowing this out of proportion, or if this person really is an asshole.
Is anyone interested in reading it? Or should I not bother? I'm not even responding to the last email. This person not worth my time to talk to me like shit.
