Ok, to make it clearly. I NEVER give my permission to anyone to use one of my Bleach fanarts in merchandises. Thank you :iconrydi1689: who let me know about this. She found that the Grimmjow picture that I drew a long while ago being used...without none of my permission.

...The watermark is still there. Such an effortless person, not to remove even my watermark?...lazy bum *pffft*

Photobucket

Just in case if you guys are curious, this's the back paper that they put behind the Bleach necklace. :devrydil689: already removed the necklace off the package so we can see clearly how my image being used.


PFFFFTTTTTTTTTT....I don't think I can really do about this absurd thing. =__=" This's just toooo stupid and really obsurd. ARGHHHH!!!

Apparently, it's been happening a lot to many artists here on DA. Even clothing companies like using artwork without permission... I think these people's idea of DA is that "free art browsing" equates to "free art" which it doesn't mean that at all... Hopefully this gets cleared up. :(

Pffft...some businessmen they are.

They profit on the hard labor of other people. *sighs* I also know someone's artwork, a Bleach fanart, was stolen. And it was branded as an original artwork of Kubo Tite! It was used as frontcover for Bleach DVD. :iconnotimpressedplz:

That's some big problem a lot of great artists have :|
I feel sorry for you. It actually happens a lot I noticed lately.
Especially at the Zara... Last time I saw a T-shirt and I just knew I have seen the photo on it before, it was a photo from DA after all.
But is it possible to contact the company? Perhaps I say something really stupid right now, but I think you should try, you are totally right and they actually don't have any arguments to use your artwork without permission. And the evidence is just there with the watermark!

I am sorry this has happened to you. I know how you are feeling a bit. My boyfriend has work on line in several area's including DA and has had some of his work stolen before. As well as a few more of my friends.

To use stolen art to sell a product is not a good thing. I am not sure that you can get money back for your work since it is fan art, but they can get into trouble for using it illegally and also they probably didn't have permission from the creator of the original anime/manga for it as well.

upon closer reading i see that this is more complicated than i originally thought. sorry for the lame answer. and yeah chinese bootlegging is huge and is virtually impossible to stop. on the flip it could be viewed as a great compliment. they thought your Grimmjow was better than anyother grimmjow they could have stolen....

That's absolutely absurd...you should definitely contact the companies involved, because a) you should get massive royalties and b) the person who designed that package ought to be fired for plagiarism.

Actually I think they've left the watermark alone, because that way it looks more like they're crediting the artist = meaning the artist agreed to such a thing. I know it sounds stupid, but that's the only reason I can come up with to explain that to myself == But what were they thinking in the first place? O.o God, I hate art theives. I can't really draw and if I ever wanted to sell something made by me it would be really difficult but I would NEVER do something like that. It's just... wrong in so many ways.
I think you should find that company. At least give them a sign that you know. And that the community knows. Maybe it will help, although unfortunately I don't think so D:

That happens quite a lot. Here in Brazil (where I live) a friend of mine (and a fellow deviant) found a t-shirt that had a D.A art on it. And it was a really big and famous store. She tried to contact the artist, but he/she never answered so I don't really know if he/she is aware.

Some time ago MTV Brazil reported that some designers had their arts stolen by another big (and expensive as hell) stores. They were sued and everything, but the damage was done.

It's quite common to find items 'made in China' that are using arts without permission. Truth is, those things are sold without paying royalty not even to the anime/manga creator. Sometimes they enter he country (not only mine) by some illegal ways - or not so legal. It's a huge problem.

(Sorry about my bad bad English ^__^'''')

This kind of thing is really rampant in Asia. Here in the Philippines, just go to "Comic Quest" and you'll find all kinds of fanart and original illustrations turned into different merchandises like mouse pads, posters, wall scrolls, stickers, cards, etc. Even action figures/figurines are reproduced, although badly...

I was working at an anime merchandise shop before. Many items (including necklaces and stuff) had stolen fanart as backgrounds (necklaces, pins, pens, pocket watches, you name it), most of which still had clear watermarks on them. These items were ordered from China, and unfortunately, there is no way to stop them from doing this. When I asked my manager (in a roundabout way), he said that the characters drawn do not belong to the fanartists, so they have no right to complain or to sue. And that's about all he cares about, because he's a business man. *snorts in anger*
