Angry Theft

Anyone had dealings with "red_sox_14" at ebay?

The jackass is trying to sell/aution t-shirts with MY ART!

http://cgi.ebay.com/SCI-FI-BATTLESTA...QQcmdZViewItem

The thread with the original art-

http://www.colonialfleets.com/forums...ead.php?t=9764

I e-mailed him through ebay asking who said he could use my art.

I also e-mailed ebay themselves reporting this theft.

I say get him kicked off E-Bay and the Internet altogether. There's no room for that kind of theft. Learn to be creative instead of ripping off other people's stuff.

Hey, how did he get this one?




http://cgi.ebay.com/SCI-FI-MOVIE-BAT...QQcmdZViewItem

From the image, that looks remarkably like an animation I did but I don't recall ever posting any large stills from it.

I think I did put up a video with a small pic (500 x 375) so if that's what he used, the quality on this T-Shirt thing must be really crappy.

Either that or one of the larger still's I've shared with the innner circle has made it out to this little snitrad's paws. I'm pretty sure that's an image built from my first mod of the stock viper model Either that or someone else had the exact same screwups I had and used the same mod textures because that looks remarkably like the modified belly texture I created for the viper that I later replaced with the revised mod (Version 2).

Kaith, I'm about half way through the "procedings" with ebay.

Waiting to hear back from them for the second time.

I contacted them, they responded with a link to a form to fill out, I filled it out and faxed it to them. Now waiting on them.

if there is anything we can do to support the complaint, let us all know...retailers are supposed to be sensetive to (potential) customers opinions..

Cheers,

IS that yours?

OK, explains that one. I thought it was mine based on the belly texture.

I'm pretty sure I have a flyby animation buried in my DVD archives somewhere that looks pretty close to that and I couldn't figure out how this clown might have gotten his hands on it.

Then YOU should write Ebay.

Anybody who has art that's been lifted by this guy NEEDS to write IMMEDIATELY to eBay and report him. Be sure to include the seller's name, a link to the offending item, and an explanation that you did NOT give him permission to use your art.

It's also possible that he's selling these shirts using cafepress.com or a similar service as the manufacturer, since he isn't showing the actual shirt. Lots of people do this, taking the shipping info of the winner and plugging it into cafepress.com, never actually seeing the product. If that's the case you may have additional recourse through cafepress.com since they take this sort of thing seriously. He may be using the same handle there.

If anyone here is a member of ebay, you could probably give him a few "Bad Reports" in his stats section, and explain the story. Negative comments don't float too well on ebay.
Usually before people do business they read the reports on who they are dealing with.
So if you mention his art is stolen, he may feel it in his wallet a bit.

Just a thought

I'm still awaiting word back from those clowns.
