STOLEN ART - iPhone Cases
STOLEN ART - iPhone Cases
Hey All,

Found a site thats selling some cases of Society6 Artists! The site is in all Japanese and my translation doesn't seem to site them from Society6... and on top of that they're selling the cases for 6,000 Yen which equals $75

Budi Satria Kwan
Ewan Arnolda
Steven Kline
Bianca Green
Abel Fdez

These are just a few of the artists... Please help figure out how to take this site down!

Yeah this is quite a collection... But they use S6 images so I dont think that they have produced anything yet....
Holly Sharpe commented on June 20, 2012 11:49am
hopefully!! :s It seems like a never ending battle!

Damn! :( I hope everything can be safe from this people.
Bianca Green commented on June 20, 2012 12:03pm
well, they are selling almost every case on S6 :)
Since they are using S6 photo's, there's no way to tell if they are producing or just acting as the "IN BETWEEN" platform and buy from S6 once a order comes in. Since the price is quite hight, I think that's what they do.
Bianca Green commented on June 20, 2012 12:22pm
we can't proof that she is or isn't buying from S6. IF she does, and that's what I think, the artist will get the money just like from every other customer. the typical bla bla is just to make her look good, every shop does that :)

I think they are re-selling. They don't have the original in high quality to make the print. There is a phone case I made of 1000 cats that has been sold a lot of times. And I think they are re-selling it somewhere. But I am beeing payed OK.

Smh!
PAUL PiERROt commented on June 20, 2012 12:58pm
wtf!??!!!
Pegeen Shean commented on June 20, 2012 1:17pm
I think you need to contact S6 and see what they can do? This is getting ridiculous! S6 should have a lawyer on retainer that understands international copyright Law and could help by sending a "cease and desist letter". Something has to be done or folks are going to start fleeing this site!!

Mine is on there :(
Vorona Photography commented on June 20, 2012 1:52pm
Oh, if they are just reselling then that's cool.
Monika Strigel commented on June 20, 2012 1:53pm
Hmmm..
Michelle Behar commented on June 20, 2012 1:57pm
Yes, I think it is cool if they are re-selling, more sales for us. They are not able to make them with out the high quality image we send only to Society6.
Vorona Photography commented on June 20, 2012 2:25pm
Maria, yes actually I have sold several of that case, but of course I don't know who is buying them.
Budi Satria Kwan commented on June 20, 2012 3:54pm
It is said in the website that if you are ordering the case, it is going to be delivered by USPS, so the store is probably a reseller.
Bruce Stanfield commented on June 20, 2012 5:55pm
YIKES!

Good detective work INDUR. It is a tricky one.

If they did not buy the case from s6 and stole your design then printed it on a case so you did not receive any commission then thats illegal.
But if they have bought the case I don't think reselling is illegal or infringing on your rights in anyway? And it means more sales for you...

This is very sad for the creative world ):
Abel Fdez commented on June 22, 2012 9:29am
The site is now closed! It was illegal then?
I don't mind if they are reselling but the least they can do is to name the artists.

There seem new sites to spring up constantly! I think we all got to start being the artists for artists thief police and help each other out as a given! See this joker http://www.etsy.com/shop/LynneStudio?...eller_info _who is as stupid to use the same titles_which I think in turn is good to find the rightful owners! However, I am sending out an important WARNING of urgency_do NOT alarm the thieves that we are onto him/her/them! Etsy needs to get a grip and follow these suckers! If you get pissed and attack them via messages, then they just hit the road and start a new shop_so patience, as I believe they will go down eventually! I have informed as many artist as I could (so did others) and if Etsy learns of these artists, who contact them, they at least then will have them on the radar for future thieves trying to sell the works! I really believe that is more beneficial then instant anger gratification!?

I'm reporting to etsy too
Sylvia Cook Photography commented on September 28, 2012 5:00pm
Abel Fdez said on June 22 that this site was closed. Someone posted the link to it again in our S6 FB group and we all saw it again for awhile. I took one screenshot of one of mine on the first page I was looking at, then when I went to click to page 2, it was suddenly closed again!!

Here's an Etsy shop that has mostly stolen Society6 images:

They had three of my images on there.

how do we get rid of this site???
Ben Geiger commented on March 12, 2013 2:49pm
FYI the picture is fake. I found another site using the same image here http://www.takeguchi-dental.com/cure/
