a friend told me that my LOTR artworks are sold in ebay cgi.ebay.fr/Lord-of-the-Rings-… and I only sell my art in DA now,that maybe this guy bought my art and resell in ebay. hope friends notice the information.
Oh, man, I'm sorry that you feel this way, but it's not illegal to sell a print. Let's say that I bought the very same print on eBay (true), and let's say that I don't want it anymore (false): I have every right to sell it on eBay or wherever I see fit. I'm not even sure that I have to mention the author, honestly: you don't have to mention the author or editor of a used book you decided to sell, you have every right (again) to provide an incomplete description for your whares. As a shop, I'm pretty confident you can systematically buy from DA and sell on eBay tripling the price. What you are NOT allowed to do is using a print you bought in order to make more copies of it, because by buying the prints you didn't acquire also the rights of reproduction. I'm sorry, man. Though I love your work and I would be the first one to fight at your side in order for you to take all the credit you deserve, there's nothing technically illegal in what this person is doing.
After looking at the other fine artwork he has up for sale on eBay, my guess is that he doesn't have the right to make and sell prints of any of it. I see that he is also selling prints of this DA artist's artwork: [link] . Here's his eBay page of this same artwork: [link]
It's a real shame that this type of theft is so common now.
It seems the guy is selling prints he bought in conventions (and have the signature of the authors) and he sells them at a very high price. (is that legal? I asked one of these authors and he said it was legal to sell again one print he bought before)
But in the case of , the guy on Ebay didn't buy these prints so has no right to do so without permission. It seems that he has no rights either on the picture you just linked, yes... it's stolen art... I hope Ebay will close his shop!
Ah, I see now; it does show that the print was uploaded under Art > Art from Dealers and Resellers > Prints. If the seller legally bought the print, then the seller should be able to re-sell it for a profit just as artworks are sold and re-sold all the time at regular art auctions. I apparently mistakenly read into the description that the seller was creating his own prints. Thanks for your information!
