Stop Thief!


Even as a relatively new blogger on the scene, I know that you need to give credit for ownership. If it ain’t yours, you need to cite your source!!!

Most folks aren’t asking for money, they just don’t want you thieving their work!!!! That “copy and paste” function is in rampant use in the blogosphere…which explains prolific watermarking efforts. It still surprised me that a well-known company would do it.

My fellow nail polish blogger and new Twitter friend Swatch And Learn had the misfortune of having her photos printed without permission by Sinful Colors.

Her story is HERE.

And then The Swatch-A-Holic’s story is HERE.

It’s really a backhanded compliment.  “Your work is so incredible that I want to use it for everyone to see and give compliments, but not to you…. I want the compliments for myself.  You aren’t worth the recognition.”  

Ridiculous.   

If it’s a good idea or a great photo….FROM SOMEONE ELSE….. don’t claim it as your own.  It’s tacky.  Disrespectful. Deceitful. Shady.  

End rant.

    Wow that is so foul, it’s imperative to label your pics, thanks for the reminder. She needs to walk with her can opener, for that whoop ass whoever stole her pics needs to get

    • Yeah, it’s very very sad. I would be LIVID!!! The only difficult part is that it could have been some other random thief that actually brought the photos to Sinful Colors claiming ownership. Folks are going to be straight tired of my watermark. 🙂

  2. Wow, that’s crazy!!!!!! I thought Revlon took over Sinful Colors.
