I've been watching things go down with another friend on DA who also sells toothless necklaces, shes decided there's nothing that can be done with the Chinese company now mass producing one of her necklace designs. it got me thinking about my own work.
I'm thinking that I need to stop posting my art. I cant deal with how much and how far people will go to make money. especially those who steal designs, and then mass produce things in china. I just want nothing to do with it. the only way to protect my self and my art is to not post it apparently.
so what does that mean for now?
it means I wont be posting any new designs, anything I've already done has pretty much sailed the sea at this point.. my new work is something you will just have to wait for, till I've finished my degree and opened an official jewelry business.
but the toothless necklaces will continue, they are a grey area anyway. and any design I've already produced. I will still go after those who infringe on my personal copyrights. it only cost 100.00 to sue china, and less to get people in the usa. I think too many of us think its a battle we cant fight.
