Hey Darkkal, where do you think you will be 10 years from now?
oh god. now it’s even worse. I have to post it again.
it’s so much worse. Damn it. I was done crying. Why? I can’t handle this. Omg, it seriously fucking hurts.
I am sure you will be able to solve it, right?!
You will notice that I am the culprit
and then you will stop me, right….?!
These three lines….. someone please tell me why was I given emotions?
Hi guys, I really need your help. This instagram user has been stealing and reposting artwork without permission. I’ve tried contacting them - before I’d ever been aware of their account they had blocked me, presumably because they saw I post my own art on my instagram and knew I wouldn’t want others doing it. So I set up another account today, messaged them and they deleted my comment without responding and temporarily made their account private.
A friend of mine messaged them about her art, and they basically said “You’re posting it online, this means anyone can do anything they want with it.” They then blocked her and posted her picture yet again in screenshot format, tagging her in a comment so that she’d see it but be unable to respond.
They know what they’re doing is wrong, and without your help they’re going to continue doing it. What’s worse is that there are people defending the thief when I speak up.
If you have an instagram account, can you leave a comment or even better, report them? Their copyright report system is so complicated so I understand if you don’t want to navigate all those pages, but even reporting as a scam/spam is as simple as a click and it’ll hopefully draw instagram’s attention to the matter.
I’d be so grateful for a signal boost, guys. I really appreciate you even reading this. It’s so disheartening as an artist to just watch this happen.
Here’s an excellent guide on how to report stolen art on instagram - thank you for the heads up bifca!
