I'm feeling really dispirited at the moment. I used to have a public Flickr account, and in the past few years I've had so many photos stolen that my Flickr has been set to private only and I've stopped uploading there. Nowadays pretty much the only photo uploads I make is to here, and my private Instagram account (which you need to be approved to even view).
In the past week I have found one of my photos has been put up on FineArtAmerica for sale by someone else, and the page isn't responding to my request to remove it. I've also just found that one of my photos which was uploaded only to here and Instagram has again been stolen and uploaded on random sites. These are not the only two images I've found of mine, just the latest two examples.
I've now set my Tookapic account to not be spidered by Google as I suspect that's where it's come from, but it's just frustrating. I love uploading my photos. I love being able to share the biggest thing in my life that I enjoy doing. But if my image is just going to be stolen, then it's really making me not want to upload my photos anywhere anymore.
Just feeling sad and needing a place to vent. :(
What would you do/how would you react if you found one of your images had been taken and put up for sale for prints by someone else?
