Skanks who steal site images

Postby taraburner » Wed May 07, 2008 6:41 am

What is the deal with stealing someone else's images?

I have print screen of the stolen image on the thief's site and it matches one on my site that I put up going on 2 years ago!

I won't out the person by name... yet
but you can read all my vent at
http://www.taraburner.com/blog/business ... sites.html

or here you go:

Really do people not think the original owners will find out or what?

This morning I saw an ad posted on a group boasting about their grand opening so naturally I went to check it out and lo and behold an image from Affordable Mineral Makeup was found on their site.

They added text over it and cropped it but there’s no mistaking the background and the containers as being from Affordable Mineral Makeup.

I won’t ‘out’ the person on this blog yet, I did email her along w/the group owner, along with the hosting company and her tech people as well.

Why is it so damn difficult for people to take their own images and represent themselves as honest people rather than lying skanky a$$ thieves?

We’ll see if she acts accordingly and removes stolen image within 48 hours or if I will have to proceed legally against her. And, I will…

Seriously, what is it with all these WAHMS (and everyone who has stolen images/content from Affordable Mineral Makeup has been a wahm, thus the mention of them here) who think they can just go and steal images, content, etc. That just shows they’re hobbyist, wanna be’s who lack originality, integrity. I’ve owned this company for almost 2 years now and have built my reputation and all these wanna be’s who steal from me and think it’s ok are just unreal.

So, we wait for 48 hours and if my stolen image isn’t removed my lawyer gets to have fun… again!

"Skanks".

Tara..after reading your posts in the last few years I hope you dont mind if I tell you, but you should really learn to speak your mind more! :|
Dont be shy.

Hey...take it as a COMPLIMENT that gals keep stealing your images. That means you are doing great work. They obviously are not capable or imaginative enough to design their own work!. :twisted:

ROFL

and the actual definition of skank:
# filth: any substance considered disgustingly foul or unpleasant
# Disgusting or vulgar matter; filth.
# One who is disgustingly foul or filthy and often considered sexually promiscuous. Used especially of a woman or girl.

it's also a jamician dance but that's not what I'm talkin bout! LOL
