Nice Paper Toys

The Papertoy Network!

So some one recently pointed out to me that a store in Singapore was selling my FREE templates as flat packs. When I confronted them they pointed me to the company from which they purchased them. http://item.taobao.com/auction/item_detail-0db2-d564d045b68b66e7123...

Isn't that awesome? They also use my logo here, but I have no idea what anything says. http://shop35118716.taobao.com/shop/xshop/wui_page-16276919.htm

You might want to check and see if you find any of your work here as well.

So I asked the store to contact this other company to ask them to stop selling my stuff, and they said they will stop. I guess we'll see.

I guess over all it is very flattering, but it really sucks when an artist spends so much time on something, and then gives it away for free, and then someone else just steals it and makes a profit from it. Lame. :(

Oh well, onward and upward I guess. :)

Try putting your logo in a spot with lots of graphics underneath it, like a translucent logo.
This should make it tougher to remove the logo and get the graphics to still look correct.
I plan on doing this on some of mine soon, because i dont trust people with selling my work.
They gotta be pretty good to outwit a translucent logo...
Then again i could, but i am working with programs that have so many features installed by me it's impossible to duplicate it.
skimming through the thread I cant tell but has anyone been able to contact the guys who are turning these out? and if so has anyone tried offering exclusive designs for a cut of the profits?
It seems the same thing is happening to some other toys as well.
I was contacted by an Indonesian person who let me know that they are selling my toys (and others) wholesale, and the build models as well.

This is an extract from the mail I received;

...I saw someone selling your papercrafts both in Built up model or pattern. They even sell them in huge package as a Wedding souvenirs package.

It really bugged me when I saw your papercrafts and other papertoys from the internet sold in some events in Indonesia (I live in Indonesia), and in their multiple websites... and they even got some TV interviews.

My feelings about this are somewhat the same as castleforte.

Does anyone, by any chance, know this person? I contacted them, I hope it helps.

I also reported this to the 'multiply' thing which hosts the site. Perhaps, if you see your designs among the ones they are selling, you can do the same.

update:
I contacted this person, and they removed (nearly) everything from they're site immediately.
I don't blame you for being upset, you are so right! Best of luck with getting the creeps to stop!
I went to that china website that was mentions earlier and i found a BIG banner advertising some papertoys made by us (which they are selling without our permission).
