So today, everywhere on DA you could see people warning others about a MASSIVE ART THEFT. I'm gonna sum it all up a bit..
Today, as I woke up, I checked my DA account as I usually do. And I found out someone was warning me about a site called http:// markyourspot.com / They were selling prints and canvas using DA artists works without permission. They just stole them and sold them at around 1000$. Two of my works were being sold there. I was really upset and angry and reported it and sent them an e-mail.
I decided to write a News article: [link]
on this just as someone did with www.art4love.com (Please go fav it so that it can be spread faster!!!!) and a few seconds later the site was shut down.
People started to investigate what all this was about and it's seems CHAD LOVE LIEBERMAN
, a pretty famous pop-art artist based in NY is running several websites where he claims lots of DA works as his own. But not only that, he also sells them at about 1000$ each. The thing is that this guy usually sells "his" works for 20.000$ and art4love and markyourspot were sites where you could supposedly get a bargain and pay just 1000$ for them.
Here's an article about this: [link]
how the hell does he talk about this when he's stealing artworks??

... and here you can see [link]
from an artist here on DA.
Both official sites (art4love and markyourspot) have already been shut down but he's moved everything in here: [link]
: If you want to browse the site just change the "love4art" word for the number "18.104.22.168" on the url and the link will work.
As far as I know two of my pieces are on that site for sell: [link] [link]
I don't really know how all this will end but I truly wish he pays a lot of money for all this and is judged for being a thieve and making money form others work and effort..
