You should be embarassed!!

Why? Because stealing other people's artwork for commercial purposes is simply disgusting. My "In Love" photograph have been used as a flyer design for an indie/new rave/electro club called EinsB in Göttingen, Germany.

Thank you very much.

Eleh said...

there's this thing called Intellectual Property (IP). im not really sure how that works but maybe you could look it up to know further.

anyway, it's one thing to admire a person's work but this has really gone to far. chin up girl. totally random, but Idul Fitri is coming :)

Dee, maybe you should put your signature or watermarks in your photo/artworks, to make it easily identified. Make sure you put it in the significant spot to avoid cropping. Good luck...

copyproof said...

hei, honey..
couldn't you do something about that?? They're taking advantages from your artwork, dear.. There should be something you could do.. like sue them, or asking for public statement, or so?

rhoemz said...

wedew ka'di, is it a picture from ur art work in devianart?..tenang ka'.berkah ramadhan buat kk, mungkin Allah mau ngasih hadiah special deket2 ini ke kk^^..wait n see aja..

putri said...

kayaknya ka diana hrs ngasih watermark sama peringatan di deviationnya. biar ga dipake seenaknya, apalagi ka diana kan uda popular di dA

dD.Diyana said...

Yea put watermarks signature on each and every artwork or photos you have done.

Olivia Butarbutar said...

OMG! I think they should talk to you before. But maybe you should a lil bit proud to K'Di because you look lovely on that pic so anyone want to use it but they've got a wrong way by not told you before x(

SAYA RASA SAYA MAU AISKRIM! said...

YES. put watermarks.

Vina Sagita said...

OMG, parah banget.. ckck

ayashita said...

Tapi mbak diana bangga juga kaaaaaaannn?? Artworknya dipake ampe ke german getoh..

Sabila Anata said...

An indie club ???
This happens alot to you
sabar ya kaaaaa , but u should be proud too cause that means your artworks are so damn cool :)

TATA BAHASA said...

tapi emang keren kok ! saluuuuute ! ^^

Alyaa said...

Sue sue sue. Know your rights and claim what is yours (Intellectual Property).

Oh and you might want to use the copyright thing, there's this copyright.com website but I'm not really sure how it functions.


This is injustice. You should at least notify the club owners. I bet in the US, they'd just sue these people, kan?

makanya kalo ga mau dicolong, ga usah di pajang-pajang di internet sebelum di hak cipta, mbak!

selly octavia said...

wow.. you should be asking for a royalty then di... hehe.. it's such ashamed for those people..

*sigh*

lollypollyjolly said...

waw... keren! berarti artwork kamu keren banget, sampe dipake gitu....

Anonymous said...

tutup aja account di deviantartnya dee....
drpd dipake ma org2 yg gak bertanggung jawab lg!!!

*monmon*

Nindy Milkysmile said...

cuma saran aja nih ya,

mending semua gambar gambar kak Diana
yg di deviantart itu,
dihapus dulu.
terus kasih watermark yang besar
di titik yg ga bisa di crop,
terus upload lagi deh :)

soalnya pas masih jaman FS dulu :p
saya sering lihat gambar gambar itu
dipake di layout yang ada di website penyedia layout fs,
atau di web penyedia gambar testimonials yg glitter glitter apalah gitu

dan pas saya buka deviantartnya kak diana,
saya inget sering lihat gambar gambar itu.
dan jadi tau deh siapa sebenernya yg bikin :)


hehe. cuma saran aja sih. sori kepanjangan. thx ^^

elisha nathania said...

sabar ya kak diana maybe they're just jealous makanya mentang2 jauh mreka ambil aja

Xiaopei said...

Sue them?

vani said...

msh bingung, gmn cara nge search fotonya ampe bsa ktm jd banner gtu? googling?

lopi said...

This is disgusting of them. You probably can't sue them, but here's what you CAN do:
There's a site called "You Thought We Wouldn't Notice" http://youthoughtwewouldntnotice.com where people upload things like that, concerning stolen intellectual property from all creative areas, like graphic design, fashion, illustration, photography and web design. I think you should absolutely upload this case, so that everyone knows they steal other people's ideas.

liat positifnya aja..
ka diana benar2 TERKENAALL!

michelle_ said...

so unoriginal .

germanshepard said...

There are 2 ways to respond. One is disgusted while another is flattered. Positive is the key word. By the way, since Aidil Fitri is here, can you show us you in traditional clothes please? I would love to learn other cultures. Thanks.

Anonymous said...

Please don't flatter yourself and call that artwork.deviant art is like getty images for design.you said 'stealing' hmm did s/he put his/her name for the design? Guess not. So it's not stealing then.

By the way, things like these have happened before, right? Why don't you stop complaining and start doing something to prevent others from stealing your so precious 'artworks'? What you do is bragging, and people hate that kind of snobbish attitude.

PS. Your face looks weird in the photo.
PS 2. Maybe you won't publish my comment but I just want you to know what others think about you.

Nadya said...

sabar ya kaaa D:

@Erlinda Mikal@ said...

Andrea said...

Hi... kalo begitu kenapa lo post yang hi-res di DA? biasa gw kalo sayang sama karya gw dan ngga ingin diambil orang, gw post yg screen resolution aja biar ga dipake orang.. 600px, 72 dpi gt..

kalo screen resolution kan ngga bisa dicetak tanpa jadi pecah... paling2 5 cm mana bisa dipake flyer...

tp lo pernah belajar design kan? jadi at least ngerti kan soal bedanya resolusi cetak dan screen?

there are TONS of free stuff in the internet, like... banyak orang yg kasih stock di DA, dan cuma minta dikasi credit.. gw tau karena gw juga pake DA.. daripada marah, mending lo bilang sama orangnya, TANYA kenapa dia melakuan itu?...

maybe s/he was stupid enough to think that your work was some kind of stock..

toh bagus juga kan karya lo bisa dihargai orang?
mending lihat sisi positifnya daripada marah2x..

*cheers

yaz said...

awww that's sucks anyway
and well yes
sayang banget kalo karya kita mpe dipake orang lain kaya gitu ya,kak >,<
yang sabar yah
kalo bisa si dicari and di telusuri contact person nya tuh orang ><

oh ya
by the way i also had seen that picture used in a friendster layout
is that a problem also,sis?

Lisa rock your socks! said...

Your best compliment is, plagiarism?
Because you are awesome Diana!

And all the way in Germany! Awwwh.

I say, just take it as a compliment! :D
Nothing you can really do.

Love love love your blog!

to all the readers of this blog:

yo, i know how it is to be plagiarized. it sucks and to all the people here who say it's a form of flattery, you've obviously never been plagiarized before and i pray it will never happen to you. it sucks, embarrassing and totally brings out the negative. so pardon Diana if she's a little mad, because she has every right to be. i respect her for not lashing out harshly and still kept her composure -unlike some of you who used this incident to lash out on HER. Diana's got class.

to Diana, girl, whether you put watermarks on them, or make the pictures unclickable, it won't stop these stupid people to copy your work as long as there's a print-screen technology. the best advice here is to lower your resolution. afterall, you're the one keeping the originals to look at and to really enjoy. so chin up, be awesome and don't let the foolery stop you from doing what you do best.

kata orang, makin tinggi pohon, makin kenceng angin. but i always ask: why be a free and wild high tree when you can be a beautiful bonsai with widespread roots and worth millions and millions? ;)

much much much respect! :D

Diana Rikasari said...

thank you for all the support guys...really, really appreciate it...:)

anonymous: your comment really made my day...feels great to know that someone understands your feeling...moreover issues like this...thank you very much...much love :)
