French Speakers Required in Art Theft Case!

Journal Entry: Wed Jul 27, 2011, 2:17 AM
Parlez-vous Francais? If you are a fluent speaker, please send a note over to eurasia-art.
Someone has posted some of her art on their Facebook page, uncredited, and argues that he doesn't have to take it down because anything on the internet is fair game. Trouble is, he keeps replying to her pleas in French and she really can't convince this guy to budge. French might just be the key to this guy getting it.
More details (and probably more accurate ones) on her front page's journal.
Facebook really needs to improve on helping artists with stolen work.
Merci beaucoup mes amis!
(Et oui, je parle Francais mais ce n'est pas ma premiere langue. Je suis comment vous dites... 'rusty'. Et un peu 'crap'.)

A big ol' merci to everyone that helped with this case. You all did a gorgeous job, proved that for every crappy internet guy there are like 60 awesome internet people, and the thief has taken the art down from Facebook.

Hey, I know the case is solved, but here is a useful post about art theft-- the best part about it is that it has a list of people who are willing to help people with their other language. [link] it's an old post, so I'm not sure how many of the people are still active, but still, I think it's of some worth :D

My. God. Can people STOP posting others art work uncredited? And if it's not yours, and you know where it is from, why would even upload it in the first place? It's not that hard to at least put a link to the artists page.

And the whole "Everything on the internet is fair game" is a silly as committing a crime in another country and going "I'm not from your country, so you can trial me!"

I'm learning French but I don't think I can help. I understand almost... you know... LIke - nothing... XD. But I'm supporting everything You do! D:.

Maybe I can argue in Polish? It's the most difficult language in the worls, right? I can do it 8D!

Isn't it cute when people don't understand copyright laws?

Hiya all.
I wanted you all to know that it's all solved now. The guy has finally removed that drawing from his account.
I want to thank you all for the help and support you've given me =)

I can help too if needed, since French is my native language (and English, as you may have noticed, a learned skill ;-) )

Eurasia-art, just drop me a message if you need my help. If not, well, "Tant mieux" as we say, ("good for you"), because it means you already found help :)

Thanks, we solved it now. At least for now that is. :)
