my drawing of Cupid from Love's Gonna Getcha and use it in a promo for a rapper named Lindo Yes (maybe it's the same person? I don't know). I submitted a copyright infringement report on Soundcloud, where Lindo was using my drawing as artwork for a song called "Love is a Battlefield."
Good lookin' out, fam.
For the record, shit like this is not cool. I work hard on my craft. I'm not rich or anything, but I do this for a living. Google makes it easy to swipe my drawing (yes, I know you found my shit by googling "love is a battlefield"... lazy), and digital editing programs make it easy to erase my signature and slap a bunch of mismatched fonts on it, and social media sites make you think that doing those things makes you a designer.
It makes you a biter. In case you didn't know, biting is wack, so please stop. I assume you have some kind of talent of your own. Work on that. If you need artwork, just hire someone. You can find artists all over the place, some for incredibly cheap.
Whatever the case, I reported it on Soundcloud, and if I see it anywhere else, I'll report it there too. I'll get a lawyer if I have to.
Biters shall not prosper.
UPDATE: After I took action to enforce my copyright, Lindo contacted me, apologized, and offered to compensate me.
After giving him a stern talking to, I accepted his apology (and his money) and granted him permission to use the drawing (with proper credit).
For the record, I'm not mad at him anymore,
When he asked me if I would take this blog post down, I said no.
