**EDIT** Thank you guys so much! They've removed it off of their page! You guys are so awesome! I couldn't ask for better fans!

Wow, I feel so useless without an fb account xD
Nevertheless I'm glad you got help. I see it very often, that great work gets stolen by idiots... That just sucks and I could never report them all in my life time ._.
(But I try to, because I'm eeevil :p)

I'm sorry that happened to you, but I am glad that all your fans were able to help you get them to take it down.

I experienced something like that, too. Just my case was with my photoshop actions, it was posted on some page, my watermark was removed but on that page I couldn't report anything, just send a message but I guess the person who did that didn't bother to even read it :/ ..ehh life.

Oh yes! That's perfectly fine! That's encouraged! What this jerk did was removed my watermark and put their own watermark.

I just don't understand, why people are still stealing stuff! I've also experienced this, they removed my watermark and then, as I asked them to take it down, they said it was my own fault, because I placed my watermark in the corner and it was easy to remove. Since then, I place my watermark somewhere in the middle of the photo.

Ummm that is just like removing your signature in a painting. "Oh we can just crop this little corner out and we can tell the artist it is his or hers fault for not putting it in the middle of the page.

With all those hate comments and people unliking them for stealing will cause them to take it down. Not because it was reported, but because their plea for popularity backfired- BIG TIME.

This is unacceptable behavior, and I will not tolerate it. I did my part to help you out Katie! I commented telling them to take the stolen work down, as well as reported it as spam to Facebook. They really need a copyright infringement option..... I think it's fantastic though, all the support that you're getting here!!! Stay strong Katie!!!!!!

As the copyright owner of the photo/work, make sure you report it to FB. :)
And of course we've got your back!

Oh, not only that, but I hope she gets banned. All people who do this deserve to be banned from whatever site they uploaded the stolen work on.

And I see WAY too much stolen art on FB. WAY too much. As far as claiming the owner goes, I really wish it did not have to involve lawyers when one doesn't have them.

I would report on your behalf, but I'm not legally entitled because their system is structured only to respond directly to reports from the owner or a legal representative such as a lawyer : / Really sorry, I had to report something on there not so long ago and it was very frustrating, but it was taken down when I made the report myself so it can be fixed...
