Yay! [Mar. 25th, 2003|05:40 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Matt got off work tonight - he's on his way home now. This is a good thing - we have much to do!

It probably means I won't get very much painting done though tonight, but we have a lot more pressing issues. Among those are bridal-shower shopping for Amber! =)

Take a look at this

I don't know if any of you know artist Meilin Wong personally, but I think she has a right to know that there is an artist copying her work on ebay and trying to sell it as an original.
Here is the ebay url:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3509386196&category=20158

Here is the url to see the picture by Meilin Wong:

http://www.freondream.com/gallery/wings/irreverent.html

I HATE seeing stuff like this and I thought you may be able to help Jasmine, or anybody for that matter...

Re: Take a look at this

What is wrong with these people! Do they just think no one will figure them out? That's just as bad as Jasmine's copycat!

Re: Take a look at this

I know... I feel horrible. I just sent an email to Meilin, the original artist of the painting I believe to be titled "Irreverent". I also emailed the seller and told her that I owned a PRINT of the painting by Meilin and I knew she copied it. I feel ill. I hope Meilin recieves my email before that auction is over.

Uh-Oh!

I don't know Meilin, but I've talked to Lauren (Jindvik - the auction seller). She actually just bought some prints from me! I also know she reads my LJ - any comments Lauren?

Re: Take a look at this

Jey Jasmine!
You KNOW this person? Oh dear... Maybe she didn't know that she was copying it? I just don't know what to think. Do you think I might have been too abrupt by sending her an e-mail? I hate any form of negative energy but I also really don't like artist who intentionally copy others work and not a) recieve permission or b) give credit where credit is due for the original idea...=( Then again, maybe she didn't know she was copying. Maybe she has seen this picture before and it was just in the back of her mind when she painted hers... I don't know. I always try to look on the bright side of any situation...=)

Hi Kayti!

I don't know her personally - I just recognized her eBay name (she bids on my art a lot and just bought some prints from me. I think she also reads my LJ too.

Re: Take a look at this

Well I had no idea she would read this.. I sent her an e-mail as well, so maybe she'll respond to me. I don't really know what action to take in a situation such as this. Perhaps I should contact ebay?

Re: Take a look at this

As far as I know, only the owner of the copyright would be able to contact eBay for an infringement problem.

She probably doesn't know that she was copying - or doesn't know how that sort of thing works (that's usually the case, and from my contact with her she seems like a very nice person). Emailing her was a good decision to alert her to the situation though!

Re: Take a look at this

I hope she isn't sore with me. I was a bit... well, rude in the e-mail. If you are reading this Lauren: I apologize for my abruptness. I'm sure this was an honest mistake.

I was a bit suprised because I had just looked at a few of her other paintings she had up and thought them to be beautiful and original... I wouldn't have known at all about the one painting except that I OWN a print of it and am looking at it right now.

Re: Take a look at this

I do hope your right and she really doesn't know she's done something wrong. Yous said she's seems like a nice person so most likely that's the case :)
