Someone stole my work

Journal Entry: Fri Jun 29, 2012, 8:56 PM

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!… ->… ->

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!… -> his facebook page where he keeps deleting my comments, he is not even responding to messages. This is his personal facebook page:…

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.… 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. :(

I want to thank for bringing this person to my attention. Check out Comedawn's gorgeous artwork! Halfway there by ComeDawn

That's so terrible! I'm glad he took it down! I was always worried that people would steal my friends' visual art, but I never thought of literature thieves...

I didn't think words could be stolen so easily either. :(

Thank you for going through this journal and supporting me. :glomp:

It is truly sad that those people who claims themselves ''artists'' are so devoid of creativity and respect that they have to steal others brilliant work. Don't let this bother your way. Pity those people, for they can only copy, never create, living the life of others but never theirs. I'm looking foward into seeing your words published someday. You have the talent, now go for it!

Your words give me hope. Thank you, thank you so much! From the very bottom of my heart. :)

My gosh, that is just plain evil. I haven't experienced art theft yet, but it must be horrible...
You could see this as a compliment on your work, but it's just horrible to get your work stolen this way D:
Good luck with this dear~ I hope everything will be solved soon

No words to say. Some people just know not the meaning of ethics or humanity yet they pose... I guess I should not linger longer over expressions.

I just hope that your works stay yours and that he is stopped. More ever, why not publish your works as a book? I have little doubt that they would not be best sellers. I myself am writing a book involving short stories and poems so to me the idea applies to you as well.

You are far too kind in suggesting my works could ever be that good. Thank you so much for your support. :heart: I would love to buy a copy of your book when it comes out...please do keep me posted. :)
