I've seen my work "for sale" (at huge discount!) on several of these sites, and have a lot of trouble getting it removed, even with cease and desist letters! :(

I have seen the devastation that stolen work does to a person. I have even experienced it at the high school level. I do not wish to live in fear that my original works will be stolen for some low life's gain. Artists need their rights protected at all costs.

I was recently scammed online by someone wanting to pay me via a money order and have me pay the shipper his costs when he comes to pick painting up.

I feel violated to realize that almost anyone can click on our hard and heartfelt work and steal it. It is even possible that money from stolen art could be funding terrorism or illegal acts around the world. Is there any way we can check on where the money from stolen art is being sent?

If these thieves are not stopped artists will eventually be unable to earn a living.
