I won’t name and shame on the forums, but I’ve just found another seller who has not only started to sell a product that is very similar to one of my designs (something that I have been pretty much the only person selling on Folksy for over three years), but has also virtually swiped my carefully crafted product description lock, stock and barrel! All she has done it to change a few words, but it’s still recognisably mine… Blimmin’ cheek!
So I’ve reported her to Folksy. I haven’t complained that she is copying my design, as it’s something that most competent seamstresses could pretty easily work out for themselves. But nicking my words is much easier to demonstrate.
Then I notice that someone else is making the same product and using photos that are suspiciously close to mine… Again, it’s a photographic set-up I’ve developed and have I’ve been using on Folksy for several years.
There. Rant over.
Am I being totally paranoid/unreasonable??
