Gahhhhh... It has come to my attention that some of my models are being sold without my permission...

www.aliexpress.com/product-fm/…

www.aliexpress.com/fm-store/40…

Many thanks to the user who alerted me. As I offer my models for free, it pisses me off that other people are being cheated for my work... oy.


I am attempting to contact either the seller or website administrator to have them taken down and any buyers refunded (though it's a Chinese website... so we'll see how far I get)




UPDATE

Well, apparently they've been taken down already!

That was...suspiciously quick. To be honest, I hadn't expected to hear back from them at all... huh. I had to browse through the gallery to make sure, but I don't see them anywhere.

w00t!

Now that I tihnk about it, most, if not all of the models being sold are probably without permission. I don't off-hand recognize any of them, but if you happen to see one and know who the author is, please don't hesitate to contact them!

I'm actually going to have to keep checking this site; even though these two have been taken down, their gallery is up to 17 pages, where it was only about 14 an hour ago...

Twenty pages of Internet freebies and pirated commercial kits. Lots of familiar "faces" in there. :-/

yep, but such is the nature of the internet, i mean if hollywood can't protect it's products, lowly paper artists aren't going to be able to either ;)

that is so bad, glad they listen to you and remove them. I am also glad that you offer your creation for free! :) I do not know if is good or not, but the fact that they take your models is because they are really good!

Looks like both pages are down so good job ^.^
I(like everyone else) enjoy your work and when folks do that, it's just sad that they have to resort to rippin other folks' work to make a buck.
