Thanks to the internet it's never been easier for people to rip off something that somebody else created and pass it off as their own. It isn't just individuals who do it either, but major well-known companies like New Look, Forever21, and even Disney. We wrote about one such case before, where artist Tuesday Bassen discovered that Spanish retailer Zara had stolen her designs and were using them without crediting her, and now Bored Panda has compiled an extended list of people who have experienced similar unfair treatment at the hands of people too lazy, or too talentless, to create something for themselves. Scroll down to see for yourself, and let us know how you feel in the comments.

briannacherrygarcia Report

Shauday Smith 1 year ago

That's Briana Garcia, she works for Disney. I've been following her work for years and she's fantastic. She started in Disneyland and has worked her way into their artist showcases and character drawing demonstrations. She is very talented. Her sketches and illustrations are 100% her property and do not belong to disney or the public unless she expressly says so. Regardless of the subject. If i draw Disney's cinderella, that is 100% MY work. Credit to Disney for their character but MY illustration. If i take YOUR illustration of disney's cinderella and claim it as my own then i am stealing YOUR work. If i take your illustration and try to sell it, i'm putting myself at legal risk for stealing both IP's because i did not make the drawing and do not have permission to sell it as my own goods and i do not have permission to profit from the selling of a copyrighted disney character.

This would make an interesting court case. The recreation is not the original artwork, clearly, but the concept is exactly the same, from figures, to clothes, down to the masks (not the coloring) and the body poses. The derivative work is much nicer, but it's a stolen concept.

urlildaydream Report

Well, it s complicated for tatoo. of course the Kshocks s one is gorgeous. But i can imagine that someone can t travel to get this tatoo and ask an other tatoo artist to make it... very common actually. A lot of tatoos are just copy of some design because the customers want it. What we need is a good tatoo artist who can do everything we ask. but asking them to copy some work can just have a very bas result on you at the end, it s a risk sinc everybody as skills in some styles or not... but i dont see the problem. If my tatoo artist dont see any problem to do a copyright caracter or drawing if i ask it... why should we be upset for that one. Should we jail all the tatoo artist who did a mickey on their customers. Wake up people. The customers ask and you just fulfill his wish. It would be some art work from internet, nobody would have say shit.
