The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses

30 Mar

This seller suzieautomatic is using part of Paul Goble’s illustration from “The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses” on two of her decals. I don’t know if she has permission, but she doesn’t even credit him. She also calls the pronghorns gazelles.

    I’m still surprised that this kind of “handmade” is even on Etsy……..but we all know the answer to that!!

    My brackets actually had something written in between them but it didn’t show up????

    1. Pick out template.
    2. Enter template into machine.
    3. Place vinyl into machine.
    4. Press button.

    Yep, that takes a lot of artistic talent!

    Sorry………..maybe they actually design their own templates, I don’t know, but, it’s still doesn’t seem to fit the “old” Etsy!

    Rocks………..I like your “brackets”! LOL

    There is one seller who has these computer decals in her shop with watermarks all over the pictures, ‘design by whatever her shop name is’. She has one of Peter Griffin from Family Guy with designed by her splashed all over the pic. Hmm, you designed Peter Griffin, huh?

    Too all the rip off ‘artists’, my ‘artwork’ above salutes you!

    See, now…………your “salute” took more work to figure out than a majority of the crap on Etsy! LOL!

    I reported the copyright infringement to Twentieth Century.
    Maybe some others can report it too.

    How disgusting.

    I was not familiar with that book and had to look it up on Amazon. They have the book listed with the page in the book that has that picture on it. It’s exactly like it except she took away the clouds and sun.

    Funny how she says it’s copyrighted in her name in the listing.

    People who copy other people’s work always seem to claim they have a copyright. I think that’s so odd (in a funny way).

    All it would take is to add to the description – ‘Inspired by the artwork of Paul Goble’ or something, wouldn’t it? How hard is that? Scabby behaviour – so dishonourable.

    Thought I’d add the link to the Amazon page featuring the original.

    Man, I feel like that seller is just crapping all over my happy childhood memories of Reading Rainbow and that book, it was a big favorite of mine. I should check her shop and see if she’s “borrowed” from Ox Cart Man too.
