Ebay Art Theft

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 24, 2013, 10:21 AM


A fellow Deviant kindly informed me of an art thief selling pendants imprinted with stolen artwork on Ebay.

My stolen art: www.ebay.com.au/itm/Disney-Tan…
Thief's shop: www.ebay.com.au/sch/courtneydi…

I recognize some other work there but I'm not sure who they belong to. If you know who they are then please do contact them. For once I give permission to spam this shop to hell. I don't tolerate art theft in any form (especially as that particular painting of mine took forever to complete!).

Anyway, I hope someone will be able to inform the other artists. Thanks for your time :)

The Disney pinup girls is art by Tim Shumate, I could contact him via instagram, but it would be easier to contact him through facebook, which I don't have. So, if someone wants to tell him whats going on, that's who he is.

Wouldn't the best thing be to just contact Disney. I think generally as long as you're not making money out of Disney and just doing things as a fan, and don't misrepresent the characters, they will turn a blind eye, but I think they would be onto this person very quickly as they are making money out of their characters.

A couple of years ago an ebay seller was marketing t-shirts with my artwork on I sent an email to the then CEO and the seller was removed.

I've tried to find the contact details for the current CEO but he doesn't seem to have released it...but he does have a twitter account as does the founder of eBay.

I've also included below the email to Disney's own licensing infringement department who you could point towards some of the Disney owned images courtneydisney is marketing in order to get them to instruct eBay to remove the account.


Disney: designated.agent@dig.twdc.com
