Default ATTN! Pirating/stealing work AGAIN!

What's the best way to contact Meghan Mullens re: copyright violations? re: diecuts_mart on Instagram

https://www.instagram.com/p/CWN6-EKlA4x/

They are stealing her designs as well as some from Flergs & a number of designers from other stores. This one literally has the same name & preview... Why are people so terrible?

You can report it on instagram...not sure what that will do, though. What would you suggest marking it as?? Fraud? I will report it, too.

That stinks.... the page doesn't appear to be active anymore, but they'll probably just pop up somewhere else with a different name. In a group for creative makers I'm in, a woman had her photos of an Easter project stolen and used on multiple sites by scammers - but in a twist of karma, it brought a whole lot of interest to her Etsy shop when people googled the actual owner of the designs, and she sold a LOT.

I just don't understand people, I could not handle the thought of that karma coming after me one day. Shameful.

Today she's taken all those previews I commented on down- there were at least 2 that were Flergs, 2 that were Meghan Mullens & a good number of designers from The Digital Press. Hopefully she'll realize that is ILLEGAL & discontinue stealing...

Ugh! So sickening! I'm sure these people know down right that what they are doing is illegal.

That sucks! I always wonder how people could have good conscious with stolen works from other and sold it plus the illegal side!
Hope you'll manage to stop this person!
