Vindication

This interview of my feelings about the porn site theft feels like vindication:

I NEVER EXPECTED people I called friends to accuse me of “needing their attention”. Really.

I NEVER EXPECTED  people I know to accuse me to have put it there: Really.

Most of the accusations were eventually apologized for, but I know who to trust now.

And, all of this never touches on the much larger issue, which was discussed in the interview: the vulnerability we all have on the internet.

Ongoing research on IP theft

I am very unhappy with what I have turned up with so far in my research about how to get my piece pulled off a porn site. So far, no answers. And, my FBI complaint has not been answered.

I have no idea what the country of origin is, but I suspect, based on the syntax of some of the text used to provide the email address if I want to contact them directly, that it is out of the country. I am getting sicker by the day. I want this pulled off their site, and now!! Do I want royalties? Absolutely not!!

So, I will continue with my search for a solution, but any recommendations will be greatly appreciated!!

This is the photo as it appeared on the Gulf of Maine website in 2001.

I am somehow confused as to how this could even wind up on a porn  site-there are no humans even in the image!!

My best recommendation is that we all band together and petition that  this needs to stop!!  I have been advised to let it go. NOT!!

And, I am hoping for a solution to get rid of this and not jeopardize my  computer!! Please leave suggestions in the “comments” section.

Thanks, and I hope to hear from you!! And, Google your name  thoroughly-you might be surprised!

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.
