A few months ago Donovan Beery, designer at Eleven 19 Communications told me that the image I shot for AIGA “voting is sexy poster” was being used in Albania. The image was stolen from the AIGA website and changed in Photoshop to be used in a vote campaign for an organization called MJAFT.
After many months of negotiating the usage, we finally reached a settlement. No I didn’t make a million bucks, but they paid a fair usage for the image.
Remember it’s not cool to steal work by any artist.
