Remember how I made that graphic for my possible "Indie Rock Prom" a few weeks ago? (Refresh your memory.) Well, a friend of mine from the HOW Design forum sent me a message to let me know that he saw my graphic in a free local newspaper. I wasn't really sure what to think, but when he scanned in the article for me to see, I started to get a little upset!
Check it out:
Article on left, my image on right.
So there's no doubt that they just took my image and used it. It hasn't been changed in the least. My question now is, "What do I do?" Should I contact the newspaper? Should I just blow it off because it's not that big of a deal? Should I be flattered that they liked my kick-ass graphic and used it without my permission??? Help me!
