I don't know what to say. I am so upset. There is this guy, who with just a few alterations, has taken claim for my work and claimed it is his own. I am actually speechless...he removed one piece he outright stole, but he has still got SO much of my stuff up there. And refused to take it down.
There are other deviantartists he has stolen from as well. If anyone recognises their pieces, please alert them, as I have only managed to alert two of three people.
I am only putting this up because I plan to take action but if any of you recognise the work put up on his website...please please alert the artist!www.souravpandey.in/2011/09/it…
There are at least three more, but he keeps deleting my comments off his page and refuses to take it down. ALL my work is copyright and under creative commons, but he keeps on stealing!www.facebook.com/InLoveWithMeA…
-> his facebook page where he keeps deleting my comments, he is not even responding to messages. This is his personal facebook page: www.facebook.com/sourav.c.pand…
I tried asking him nicely, this is what I wrote to him:Look, I have been through a lot in my life. You claim to be a feministic man, someone who loves and respects women. I am asking you respect the only thing I have that gives me strength. My words. I am asking you to remove the stolen words, or I'm going to have to take legal action. Please. Either credit me with the original story, or remove my story completely. www.souravpandey.in/2011/09/it… This story in particular is a very important one to me when I wrote it. My boyfriend and I spoke in my car whilst driving to an animal shelter. This story embodies him. HE is a hermit, he is kind and his eyes welled up when we found a half injured piedog sitting inside a dirty old box, his back legs completely chewed off. Please don't do this to me. Just take them down. Please?
He didn't even bother to respond. Now, I'm really upset. I bleed my words from my heart and my soul. Its the only thing that makes me feel like my bones are not breaking, that I am worth something.
I love sharing my words, but not like this...never like this.
