I was getting ready to do a blog post when I received an email from Kim H. You won't believe what she found on EBay!!
Someone had the nerve to make note cards of my designs using my copyrighted photos! Yikes!! Can you believe that??
The four samplers on the left are mine. In fact, one has my initials and another has my entire name! The sampler in the upper right corner is one of Catherine Theron's teaching pieces. I'm not sure about the one in the lower right corner; it looks like either a Joanne Harvey or Essamplaire reproduction sampler.
If the samplers look distorted, they are indeed so that the culprit could get them to fit her note cards.
I think that everyone who reads my blog knows how wrong this is.
Looks like as a designer I have a new battle to rage. Not only do I need to stop pirated charts but now photographs that others are making into products. Thank you very much, Kim, for making me aware of this.
If you should ever see any item which you think is illegal, please let the designer know so she can handle the situation. Thank you on behalf of everyone!
