Category: Random and Anything Else


How to know Christmas Season is coming closer and closer? The thiefs on Amazon are adding more and more Chinese cheap trach knock-offs of our products with our designs on them!

I have just filed the possible biggest ticket to Amazon US in my own history of image theft war ever:

This is abso-fu**ing-lutely un-fu**ing-acceptable!

Update September 29: Did browse Amazon Canada and did you know you can only report 50 ASINs in one form? Guess what, one of my designs was stolen on more than 50 products. Reported them all!

I keep reporting for most of the day on all Amazon country pages. Whack-a-Mole deluxe… They even have the audacity to copy Zazzle’s Christmas Tree Ornaments!

You know, I do not really know whether I love or hate Redbubble. I love their uploader, creating products from a new design is relatively fast. But I do hate the process of adding newly available products to older designs! Every fu**ing time!

There is no quick, fast and easy way to activate new products. They had just added cloth masks – so you had to edit every single one of your designs to add the according face mask. Only to find out one week later that they now also offer magnets. And kitchen aprons. And puzzles… oh, and don’t forget the new duffle bags and backpacks!

AAARRRRGH!!!!!! I have over 100 designs online, it is tedious! The only advantage: I also take a quick look at the keywords/tags and whenever I see an important one missing, I do add it.

So please excuse me, I need to add the new kid’s masks to the regular masks, the aprons and the puzzles! And the magnets… 🤮😜

Happy creating, happy hustling!

Searching through Google and Pinterest with my real name, I stumbled a cross a few pins of allover print t-shirts with my designs on them that I had uploaded on oarttee.com

I had not heard anything about them for a while and tried their website – offline or rather domain for sale 😦 I cannot remember noticing their demise and closing.

Their Facebook page is still online. Does anyone remember what happened to them? Their last Twitter tweet is from March 2016.

I think I never sold anything and therefore had no outstanding earnings.

After almost one year with not many mentionable pirate copies and bootleg products on the Amazon.com Marketplace, Chinese copy cats strike again and this time they are fighting with self-adhesive window stickers and door stickers. They ripped the image off a glass coaster (it says so in the title) and I have reported LOTS of them today. I have an up-to-date collection of them – using Amazon’s Wishlist feature to keep them together so that I can check their status without having to bookmark anything:

Do you search for pirate copies and report them?

Update 2020-06-30: Amazon.com was very fast this time. It took them less than 12 hours to remove all reported copies!

I do have a sub-page to this blog with links to all my print on demand webshops and I finally had the time to put all the links together. It’s updated now for your convenience:
