This all feels like a bad bad joke. People just swiping my images and using them to promote their company or use for a cover of a book jacket.
Again, I did NOT give permission, nobody contacted me, nor have I been payed for the use of my work.
As you can see on this site, The Forum Company, my signature is visible on the painting in the corner, c.bayrak 09. I will say that at least they didn't try to hide the signature or change the jpeg info. I did send an email requesting they remove it as soon as I found it.
However on the book cover below
they, Mensagens com Amor, not only covered my signature up, they changed the image file to his name, uh huh, really!
You want to let them know what you think of them for taking artists images
here is their facebook page.
Have at it.
I have already sent them a message.
