loish:

the latest in the lois-gets-her-art-stolen chronicles: a chilean publisher has decided to take this artwork, drag it through photoshop hell, and use it as a cover for this book, obviously without permission or compensation of any kind. not only is it copyright infringement but making book covers this ugly should be outlawed too.
anyways, i went through this before when i found my art printed on sweaters in south korea. i talked to a few different lawyers at the time, who told me that i needed a lawyer in the actual country that the theft was taking place. sending threatening letters from the netherlands just wasn’t the way to be taken seriously or get things solved. because i never found out who was making those korean sweaters, i decided to give up fighting after they were removed from the korean web-shops - it just wasn’t worth the money i would have to invest in pursuing it.
however, this time around i actually do know who the thief is (Puerto de Escape in Chile) and i intend to go after them. however, i need someone who is familiar with chilean law and ideally could hook me up with a lawyer in chile to help me out and give advice. i could also use advice from anyone familiar with these situations and how they can be resolved. if you guys could spread the word and e-mail me at loishh@gmail.com with any information, that would help me SO much! thanks a ton for reading!!

The OTW might be able to help? They have IP lawyers, who specialise in helping with fandom fighting these types of battles.

    Some of my favorite “mill” cards I’ve had the pleasure of using.

    I really like the Keening Stone. I’m hoping to grab some Traumatizes to go with it to mess with opponents.

    President Barack Obama Riding a Killer Lion by Artist Jason Heuser

    President Barack Obama rides his faithful / vicious lion while showing off his Star Wars Jedi and archery crossbow skills in artist Jason Heuser’s killer new Presidential illustration. 11” x 17” and 24” x 36” prints of his original and variant designs are available to purchase at Jason’s epic art store on Etsy.

    I really love the Rampaged Reality love on the stock of his crossbow. The RR logo adds a menacing 1,000 x Damage!
