Found another image.  https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=255603497783761&set=a.255600467784064.75738.131605530183559&type=3&theater  Notified the apparent owner.

*sigh*  There's a few others there that I don't think are hers because they don't match the background, etc of the photos that clearly do seem to be hers.  But yeah.  *sigh*

Yeah, I'm going to report the tophatter images.

The UK copyright, by the way, was put on there by Sara/Corvus/RedCrow ... she does have a UK copyright on that design. (Not the photo, but the chainmaille pattern itself.)  Although that particular piece wasn't her image, she had seen a couple of her photos, like the MBOI ones, posted, removed and reposted over and over again.  And she was just sick of this gal, like we all were!

I don't know if you guys saw these posts -- they are very good, and I updated my original post to include links

On the bright side, it seems as if she is getting much closer to "relenting".  Only a few images left, out of dozens ...

Yep, I took to the blogosphere, too.  Couldn't just sit back.

This is the email I just sent FB, there is no good way to report a violation of this nature.
Thanks for doing that!  And you're right -- we would've left well enough alone if she would've just owned up to what she did, apologized and removed the images.  Heck, even if she didn't do the first two, I would've moved on.  But her blatant denial astounds.

I posted the list on my personal status on FB, too ... trying to get some of my crafty friends to also post on her wall. 

Her behavior is totally inexcusable.

Here's the full list I came up with. I contacted everyone. And now I'm banned from her page at this point, big surprise.  heh.

OK, off to finish a custom piece. That's my therapy.

I went and meditated ... but this issue is still bugging me.  *sigh*

I started a list of bogus images, and I've contacted all the rightful owners -

on a side note, good to see you back Blue!  We missed you!
Awww, thanks!  :)  Wish I had more time  to spend on all the forums!  I miss my "peeps"!

Yeah, I've emailed 4 different people to let them know their images are being used.  It makes me shake my head that she keeps posting over and over again that the work and images are all hers, and all her supporters keep telling her, "Don't let those other jerks get you down!"  *rolls eyes*

I've also posted a couple times on her wall, asking if perhaps her account is being hacked or something, and of course she deletes my posts instantly.

At this point, I really hope that FB just shuts her down. You'd think that after days and days of people reporting their images that would fall under their "We will terminate repeat infringers when appropriate" category.

So when Blue Buddha leads the caravan away, can I join? I love to travel, and I'd help w/the horses.
*tee, hee*  Yep, you can join.   ;)  Glad some of you here got a chance to see our prank, too.

Since I've been writing my book, I haven't been able to do much more than lurk on here occasionally, so it was fun to pop back on for a day (even with this awful-dial-up connection that is my one Intertet source while I'm on vacation)  Ive been so impressed with the way this forum has taken off--it's no wonder folks were ready to chip in and help take it over.  :)

Screw the construction promotion. Come join us as we travel the State by horse, bringing maille to the masses.  You guys will get your passion back, I promise.

Beautiful!  Spider's DVDs are great, aren't they?

Do you like smaller, more intricate work?  If so, make the smaller Japanese 12-2 and keep that one for yourself, and sell this one.  Best of both worlds.  8)

that's my plier throwing weave!
LOL.  This weave can be a sneaky little bugger, can't it?

Like everyone else, I totally love that clasp.  Really nice job, and congrats on conquering this weave!

Nicely done.  That center bead is just gorgeous.  I love how it looks like its just dripping from the maille.   :) 

Have a great Faire!
