Created this artwork recently and had an unexpected letter from alaska airlines demanding royalties for my artwork been sold on the ebay website. They said it creates unfair competition and misleads consumers.
I have spoken with alaska airlines and have discussed my artwork with them and nobody seems to understand my point of view as an artist. They have gone through so much effort sending me a 10 page printed report about my artwork infridgement been sold for £7.99 on ebay. Surley they have more important big fish to worry about.
They said I have created a Derivative work of their aircraft and have broken copyright laws. I have the thumbs up from boeing and they have ordered a ton of copies.
I have stuck by my guns on this one and have told them my rights as an artist. The copyright of my artwork belongs to me. I am definitely standing my ground on this issue!!
Has anyone had an similar problems with photos/decals of alaska airlines or any other issues regarding copyright.
Look forward to reading your feedback on what you think.
