ALERT FELLOW ARTIST - BEWARE OF WALLPART.COM
DO NOT BUY - SPREAD THE WORD
They are selling artwork they have found randomly online without permission from the artist.
Today I found out I was a victim of their scheme and have since reported my works demanding they be taken down. [ x ] [ x ] [ x ] [ x ] [ x ]
Many other artist both known and unknown have become victims of these thieves [x]. Fellow artist please go check your user name, real name, and anything else your artwork might be under!
In my case the artwork was stolen off of Society6 and my own personal portfolio site! They are hot linking all the graphics to their website (check the URL of your image you can see where they got it from).
To report your artwork, there is a link hidden at the bottom of the page in which your artwork is featured. Click “Report Violation” to start a report to the website owner.
Featured in the last image above is the rest of their contact information from the contact us page (or you can visit this website of horrible reviews featuring the same info). It is listed on the site but they try to hide this information by having it direct to another page before you can read it.
Hey guys, spread the word! My good friend had her art stolen by this website, it looks like they rip off Society6 or other similar sites and just repost a bunch of work from the artist they lift the work from =\ give it a pass and make sure nothing of yours is on there, if there is make sure to report it!
Surprisingly enough I have two pieces on here and both were swiped from Weasyl. Put any names you go by (in my case Swaggaraptor) and see. When I viewed both pages, they said the item was out of stock and all of the information wasn’t viewable. I still reported them and threatened with a DMCA and legal action since one of the pieces stolen was giftart of another person’s persona character.
Found my art being sold on there without my permission. Please check name, username, and portfolio site stuff. They seem to especially go after things posted on blogspot.
THEY ARE ALSO SELLING A PICTURE OF ME OH MY FUCKING GOD
TRY ALL VARIATIONS ON YOUR NAME INCLUDING MIDDLE NAME THIS IS NOT OK
… im… there’s a lot of my art ok, but they’re selling a pic of my dad biking with his friends im… i can’t stop laughing
I ended up finding something of mine on there, please be sure to check for you own, guys!
They’re selling a picture of me from another site I’m a member of(It’s rated 4,9 stars and has almost 200 views did someone actually buy it what the fuck???). None of my art at least, so… okay then.
Check this fucking site for your stuff guys,
report the thingsand spread the word.
Bonus tidbit from their site:
“WallPart Respect the copyright of others.
This means we don’t steal photos or images that other people have shared and pass them off as your own.
We have no base of images, and doesn’t host and store the image on servers.
Wallpart.com only helps the user to find the images interesting him, the site uses data of the most known third-party search engines.
Process of search happens at user’s browser.
The user himself makes search queries, all content displayed in a window of the browser is received from third-party search engines.
The displayed images are loaded from third-party servers, and aren’t host on the site hosting.
When the user make the order, we get the image from the user, he is responsibility for use.
Wallpart.com doesn’t bear responsibility for the images received from users.“
Wow. So they just literally sell any image off of the web that shows up in the search engine. Okay. Solid business plan right here(not).
Because what they are after is not stolen images, but your credit card info. the “stolen Images” are using Google analytics so the images are not hosted on their site (which explains the unstable search system)
I will continue the say this as no one is listening DMCA TAKE DOWN REQUESTS WILL NOT WORK! They are not hosting the images on their site and their sales are more to distribute virus and to steal credit card info. The email address is now private and the contact me seems to be missing specific parts of the code. THEY WILL NOT LISTEN TO YOU, THEY ARE ONLY INTERESTED IN SENDING OUT EMAILS FULL OF VIRUSES.
https://who.is/domain-history/wallpart.com on the 23 the info was updated as a result of the popularity, but if you want to go against something, use this info and go after the hosting provider.
Thank you for the info!
