When You Realize You Have been Ripped Off

Every artists’ greatest fear in the digital age is to find out their work is somehow no longer…their work. Then, you fight the good fight to regain you rights, and maybe money that should have been yours

And, then you find your work on a porn site. Gee, I am not feeling all warm and fuzzy about this site stealing this image to sell as wallpaper. http://liptongued.com/pz-daryl-ann-hurst/wwwb-togulfofmaineb-toorgpi-iimagespi-idahurstpi-idarylannhurst6b-tojpg.html

I am really resisting the urge to contact them directly, afraid of how many viruses they will send me in response.

Any suggestions, because this is not only not a happy thing, but also a little creepy.

I was born and raised in California, have a BA in art, have been published in the New England Antiques Journal and have photography on the Gulf of Maine's website. I have shown paintings and prints nationally since 1978.
