I am very upset! And very tired of biters and stealers on the internet!
Ok, so I was browsing the hello kitty forums and came upon this post of this girl, “Foxy Cleopatra” promoting her blog and one of her entries where she took a trip to Honolulu with her friends.
So I was like.. Oh I gotta go look at that.. Because I am from Hawaii and wanted to see what she did on her trip. So at first I was like, “aww look at all the cute photos..”
But then I looked closer and found out some of the photos in her blog, were STOLEN.
I remember my online friend, Janine (who also lives in Honolulu) posting photos of her hello kitty and rilakuma collection (e.g the hello kitty in the sand, rilakuma overlooking the beach from the hotel room) and I as I looked through this foxy cleopatra’s post, I saw she used all of Janine’s photos in her post, as well as Janine’s photos of the food, the cake, the dessert, even the ring she bought… It’s all in Janine’s flick site here:
Then I went to the Travel The World Event Blog here:
And found out this biter, Foxy Cleopatra was actually one of the winners for Round 1! She actually won a prize too >_< To think that all she did was take some photos from other people’s websites to make up a fake entry for a contest is really low.. and she actually won.. argghghhhhh ..
This makes me really upset…
I know from experience how it feels when people steal your photos, as well as your artwork, and even your writing.. I have experienced it all.
So I deeply sympathize with Janine, and have emailed firstname.lastname@example.org about this.
I hope there is some sort of justice served. This is so not right.
If Foxy or whoever knows her reads this gets upset, just know you are ALL IN THE WRONG. And the only one who has the right to get upset, is Janine.
