As per her FB status.
I would like to thank all the persons who are taking time to write me a message to tell me anytime they see my artworks been used by others without respecting the copyright... or by taking the credit of my work.
Concerning what happened with KeiKo Raça, it’s too late already [song “it’s too laaaate to apologiiiize ~TOO LAAAAAAAATE !!! ], coz the illustration with their logo on it get so popular on the internet that when I realizd what happened, thousands of people already liked it and shared it known as a “Keiko Raça’s product …”. I just don’t get it how a company that its selling itself has being so reliable can just stole the work of someone like that and consider itself as above copyright rules.
I mean, I am currently
working with the communication team of an international company and I know that anything that will be posted on their social networks will always be double checked so the source of the information or assets used are correct and not illegal.
So how come a big company like Keiko Raça could had done such mistake ? Please everybody, be conscious that any pics, illustration, music or video present on the internet DO BELONG TO SOMEONE, and you cannot used it and pretend it is yours, especially when the person you are stealing from had invested so much time and energy to produce his/her work. I know that nowadays, especially with Instagram it’s easy and super common to share a pics you like by posting it on your account, but as much as you can, please give the credit and share the source where you found it.
Sometimes you won’t be able to find the legit author or source, but at least try, or else many other people might get abused just like it happened to me.
Thanks for your attention on that, sorry if I sound like a party pooper here, I’ll do much funnier CS next week.
