An Image Thief strikes

Nothing infuriates me more than when one of my DIANNY images gets stolen by an image thief.

It happens more frequently than I care to say.

And, boy howdy, does it piss me off.

Last time I discovered one of my images was pilfered by an image thief was in June 2017.  And this is, in part, what I had to say about it

Listen, I have absolutely no problem with anyone saving and sharing my images on social media so long as the PatriotRetort.com logo appears.

But what really infuriates me is when some shit-for-brains decides to save the image and doctor it so as not to give appropriate attribution to the one who actually made it.

[SNIP]

If someone wants to be a lazy, good-for-nothing mouth-breather who takes credit for another person’s stuff, then why not become a Leftist?

This is as juvenile as putting your name on somebody else’s homework.

Well, guess what?

It happened again.

This morning, I was on Twitter and discovered James Woods tweeted out a DIANNY image that somebody stole and repurposed.

Here’s the stolen version from the anonymous image thief:

Image Thief

Yeah. I made that image back in February 2017 for a post titled “There was no part of that that wasn’t fun.”

Here’s the original.

What kind of invertebrate piece of crap thinks it’s okay to steal another person’s work?

Like I said back in June 2017, be a Leftist if you want to do that. After all, they’re the lazy asses who take credit for other people’s work.  (See also Barack Obama).

Trust me.  I’m not the only Agitprop creator who is plagued by image thieves.

It happens to all of us.  Just ask Big Fur Hat at iotwreport.com.

His clever image of Chuck Schumer as an MS-13 gang member got stolen within days of it being posted.

My Obama mugshot picture got stolen and repurposed.

And, most famously, this picture I created back when I was at All the Right Snark got stolen, cropped and passed around Twitter like a two dollar hooker.

In fact, Snopes had to debunk it because people thought it was real.

Of course they did.  Because some shitpickle image thief cropped out my credits in order to pass it off as his own.

The fact is, there are lazy, shitty people in the world.  And there always will be – even on “our side.”

And though I do not know who this particular image thief is, I feel duty bound to call him out for the lazy, shitty person he (or she) is.

Okay, I’m done ranting now.

UPDATE:

Yeah, this kind of dirty, stinking thievery brings out the potty mouth in all of us.

    I love your work. I am not a computer expert I have only shared. I hope that that is ok?

    I apologize for reposting stripped images. I don’t make any money off my graphics, so I never sign them. Hence, I am not suspicious of unsigned works. Nor do I strip signatures. I’ll replace the crow image with your original right now.

    I remember when I was on Instagram I emailed you and asked would there be an issue if I used your images. I always leave it as is with your info. Give credit where credit is due. I hope I’ve never reposted anything of yours that was altered. In my opinion your images are pretty identifiable by your work.

    Suzanne Reid said, “your images are pretty identifiable by your work.” Yup.

    And I’d note that, added to the injurious expunging of Dianny’s mark, is the insult of a minor but artless modification. Note the crow, solidly standing on the tray (Dianny’s work), and the ketchup bottle sort-of hovering impossibly on the edge (thief’s work).
