*AWARENESS* No Artist Will Want Their Work To Be STOLEN


I am the rightful owner of the mushroom picture, which I have uploaded to my Flickr as well as my Instagram.
She stole my picture off my Flickr site, posted it on her DeviantArt & claimed it's her work.
I reported it as theft & also left a comment in her DeviantArt.
She removed the pic so that her contacts will not read my comment & she re-uploaded the stolen pic again.
She also left a few comments which she hid & block me from commenting.
Again I reported it as theft & it was removed, assuming by DeviantArt.
Despite all the evidences, she called me a thief instead. Impudent asshole!

My flickr link to original image:

Note: It was reported to dA & has been taken down since.
However, thief simply refuses to admit that she stole my work.

I used to follow your blog for years but have lost touch until recently. This is my first time commenting. I know you don't have pro gear but you have patience and a good eye, so can take great pictures. It really sucks when someone steals your work! As a result you need to protect your work. Have you considered using a watermark to protect your images? -taiwan_mike2001

Hi Nikita,
Like what taiwan_mike commented, it is worthwhile having to watermark all your pictures.

I had my montage stolen by a government agency and this webmaster cropped the image so my copyright icon was removed. If you look at my blog, my images have watermark in the center. Even though the image doesn't look perfect and kinda "kiasu", at least this will reduce cyber theft and lesser anger + frustration.
