Yes, it's amazing. Last week I headed for the tube when I was out of the office, as everyday, when I see a strange Ad poster about something like "Against hatred, god loves you" con or something like that. And in the left down corner I see something I first thing I notice is that it's a HxW picture (housexWilson)....I stop and get a better look at it and finally decide it's got to be a pic a know made by someone I know...in other words, I've seen that picture before.

Today I ask [livejournal.com profile] nyaar and that's it, I was right.....they used THIS picture. I was sure it was hers so... I need to take a photo, or if there's any chance any of you go to Plaza de España Station, down from the Gran Vía exit, you'll see it right at your right.

It is needless to say, this was not made with her approval or consent and this is the biggest case of Art Thieving I've ever seen. I'm like O_O

I know, I should have already taken a photo, but I was so stunned I didn'tXD

I know exaclty where to find it, but I'm at home, on holidays now and I'm not anywhere near my office.

Take a photo (gather evidence as much as possible) and contact the company that they better pay the artist for using her picture. If they refuse, report them to the police for the theft.

Problem here it's that the picture actually is a fanart....

Still, they can't use it without her permission (maybe they don't have to pay for using it, but they have to ask first).

Well, yes, but now it's out, I doubt there's anything that can be done.

0-o WTF. Even if it's fanart and she can't be paid, the company is still wrong. Creative commons liscence, and all.
