Our Work Has Been Stolen

Have your images been stolen? Read here…

iPhone Photographer | David Pasillas

I think I always knew this was going to happen. In fact, I caught someone a few years ago that had stolen one of my iphone photos and was distributing it to people that wanted to create composites. I wasn’t too upset about that because it wasn’t a great photo, and it probably wouldn’t have been used for anything since it was heavily edited. At any rate, a simple cease and desist worked.

This recent discovery is much more upsetting. It’s a bit of a rabbit hole that myself and other artists have been delving into the last few days. At first it looked like another poster website selling photographs that didn’t belong to them. A bit of research has lead us to believe its much worse.

  1. How frustrating for those artists. I hope they can find a way to stop it. It’s like when I find pirating sites that have my book available for free download. Or at least they claim to.

    1. I’m hoping it is just a lure in their scam but it is difficult to know in this ever changing techie world… I don’t need a virus either so I will keep those fingers crossed for us all.

  2. Dearest One, Needless to say, I am sorry that this has happened.
    Perhaps we can be at least a little flattered because they feel that they have
    stolden from the best — that’s us. I sell some of my photos at fairs
    and exhibits for about $25 to $30 framed.

    You have some beautiful photos of France that I am sure that “THEY” th
    ink are wonderful. So more power to you and may they pay for this in a
    future life.

    I am always cautious about foreign addesses, etc. because, as you
    said, it can lead to “fishing” expeditions.

    I send you my love, David
