Really not cool...

I was recently made aware that some snide Chinese manufacturer was offering to make and wholesale my work on A couple of threatening emails later, they removed my images and text that they had used, infringing my copyright and intellectual property rights.Yes, that's right, they had the nerve to actually use my images and text. Concerned that I might be exaggerating? Here are the screen grabs from yesterday:
I took those last night, about 10 months after I sold the original set Makers beware - Alibaba is an apt name for this marketplace. Alibaba and the forty theives. Other makers I know have had success, as I did, by demanding that the images be removed, but if you see an artist you recognise being ripped off in this way - do the right thing and let them know.
