Original Artwork 〰️ Artwork I posted in 2013 〰️ Officeworks Notebook. Back in July last year I walked into my local Officeworks store to buy more printer paper and instead found myself staring this (slide 3) in their stationery isle. After 5 months of disputing my claim we settled the matter in December. By the age of 25 I have engaged in 10 major copyright infringement disputes against brands (excluding small fish, international factories or other creatives), cases taking an average of 6 months to resolve, 3 have had to go through my legal representation, only 3 cases have gone smoothly and only 3 companies have been remorseful or apologised. I have no doubt that this will happen again and I will continue to fight it. Instagram is a place we all share our highlights but it’s only fair that I also share my lows. I do so in the hope that as consumers we become more educated & as creatives we don’t let ourselves feel intimated & fight for our creative rights. There is a link to my past blogpost about copyright infringement for creatives and consumers in my bio.
