Amazon's Image Theft Problem...The Story So Far!
Ah-harr me hearties, come with me, Davy Brodie, a Scottish Artist, Illustrator, And Film Maker, on a tale of corporate greed, and Image Thieves operating on the high seas of the Amazon marketplace.
It’s not for the lilly-livered! Along this journey you’ll find danger, thrills, and some damn funny illustrations. But beware - the tentacles of the ‘Image Thieves’ are wriggling around waiting to trap you at any moment!
'Tis the story of one plucky little guy facing off against a Global Multi Billion Dollar company, whose fine silky words about protecting the individual rights of artists, are far removed from the actions that they take.
Read on, ship-mates, and together we’ll defeat the ‘Image Thieves’ and force Amazon to take copyright seriously…or make them walk the plank!
Here follows the illustrated adventure so far (these will also be animated into a short film)
The lighthearted sketches highlight a serious subject of copyright theft, and of course, each time I have to report a copyright infringement on Amazon, it eats into the time I should be working on creating new products, developing new work.
I'm only too happy to meet with any journalists etc to speak more on this subject. You'll get a first hand experience of a Scottish storyteller, who's just not going to let a global multi-billion dollar company facilitate thieves to steal his original work.
As you'll see from my CV i've also made short films on social justice, environmental issues etc, and was also shortlisted for the Scottish Documentary Institute's 'Bridging The Gap' scheme.
So, join the adventure, let's sail on and make Amazon do the right thing!
