Webshops are stealing my pictures!
I am really angry! It has come to my attention that at least two shops have been stealing some of my nail pictures!
Rainbow Connection stole my picture of a store exclusive from Cupcake Polish.
Ella Ann Cosmetics stole some of my Glittering Elements pictures.
I have contacted both shops to hear if they are interested in cooperating with me. Ella Ann Cosmetics said yes at first, but when Kristen realized that I don’t live in the US, she suddenly wrote that she isn't "taking on new international swatchers due to cost". Fact is that I actually offered to pay for the postage, so there wouldn't be any extra cost for her!
Rainbow Connection (Anette) decided to not answer my emails at all.
Honestly: Where are the moral and business sensibilities?
Stealing pictures is extremely bad style. I can’t recommend anyone to support shops that don’t have the decency to at least ask for permission before they use other people’s pictures (that they haven’t paid for and obviously have no intention of paying for). They didn’t even try to remove my logo. Oh, the arrogance!
This post stays up until the shops have paid for the pictures they used. Removing them isn’t enough: My pictures have been used for a long period of time, without my knowledge or permission, for advertising their polishes. That's stealing and I hate people who steal!
