Some thief person stole my t-shirt content AND description

The other day I received a notice from teespring.com that one of my t-shirt campaigns was suspended for using third party content. I believe some thief person is trying to hijack my design, content, and description as their own. They suspended the regular tee version of the t-shirt, but this women’s one has the same design. This is my content, design, and description next to it.

My description reads:

Magician. Writer. Same Thing.

Writers will fall in love with this women’s t-shirt. A wonderful reminder of the magic it takes to create stories. Conjuring worlds and characters from nothing, making them appear magically on the page. Yeah, that’s the life of a writer.

Writing is magic.

I went to the teespring. com site scratching my head as to what I did ‘wrong’ then had a thought to search for my t-shirt by name, and sure enough, this sad, sad person who who can’t come up with his or her own ideas stole my content AND copied the description associated with it word for word.

 

Here is the image of the sad, sad individual lacking in conscience who stole from me and most likely does this often. They copied and pasted the description I wrote and claimed it as their own as well.

I filed a counter complaint. Please pray that their tees and products with my content is taken down and mine returned to normal as they also said they’d be refunding the customers for the shirt they suspended.

People can be so horrible. Lord, I pray that you touch the heart of that thief, bring conviction upon him or her to see it as it is – stealing, and that this wrong is made right for me by teespring.

UPDATE 6/20/17:

Well, I discovered that my t-shirts campaign was suspended because of a tag for ‘Harry Potter’ – I had corrected some past ‘not allowed’ tags in the past but I have 100 plus t-shirt campaigns and missed this one. I had no idea a ‘tag’ was considered content. So, I recreated my t-shirt with no forbidden tags, super generic tags, and all is well with it now.

Anyhow, if my shirt campaign had not been suspended for my mistake, then I never would have found the thief person above. I am very happy to report that that teesping suspended the the above thief person’s campaign. 🙂 Thanks, Teespring.

But alas, I found another t-shirt like mine (same exact text but with bold font and a different wand) that appeared soon after I made this original blog post. So lazy and wrong to take people’s ideas and use and claim them as their own. I reported it, too. Of course, I cannot police the entire internet for my t-shirt content being stolen, but these were found right on teespring, and it’s easy to report on their site. Thankfully.

Here’s my t-shirt, and I added ORIGINAL to the title (which hopefully some swiper won’t come along and claim as well).

No greater love

I love these words of Jesus. He truly laid His life down for all to be given the choice to be reconciled to the Father. A life He raised up again on the third day, so we too can be raised up to a new life in Him if we so choose to accept His most wonderful gift.

My path with Jesus leads me to once again lay down my desires and what I want to be the time line for my dreams regarding writing and finishing my second book. The Lord blessed me with a son on the spectrum. He has Asperger’s, and without revealing any more than that, he is suffering greatly. And when our children suffer, we suffer with them. I am still not 100% healed from fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome, still struggle with pain and severe exhaustion, and it takes all of me to work my part-time job and raise and give my son the care and attention he needs now. I have no regrets and will never blame him in any way for these delays but count it an honor. I know that’s why the Lord gave Him to me. He knew I’d always be willing to “lay down my life and desires” as needed to do what is needed for my son and whatever else He asks of me.

My main ministry is motherhood and has been from the moment I held my son in my arms, and the care of my son may be extended because of his needs and health issues, but I will seek the Lord fervently through prayer and fasting for direction as to how I can best help my son be a loving and God-loving, independent adult.

Book 2 will be completed at snails pace with no idea of its release date.

God bless, and this single momma covets any ‘in Jesus’ name’ fervent prayers for my son and myself – healing all around, provision, and strength as we are making it through one day at a time.

“If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.” – Matthew 16:24

“So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.” – Matthew 6:34

Remember Jesus this Holy week and this Easter Sunday.

My favorite Third Day song, You are so good to me:

Extra money working from home. MUST love children and have a Bachelor’s degree….

Hello friends,

I just got hired as an independent contractor for VIPKid teaching children in Beijing, China English. I opened up my schedule and the first week and have already booked and taught several classes (25 minutes each) and have several more next week. Average pay is about 14 to 22/hr (rate if two classes are taught). So $7 to $11 per 25 minute class).

Basic info:

You MUST love working with children (ages 5-12). You’d be a teacher, dealing with children’s hearts, confidence, etc. Not a job for a person solely looking for extra income. These children are precious and great to work with.

Have a Bachelor’s degree.

Must go through an interview process, including teaching two mock classes to demonstrate your potential.

Be able to work at least 7.5 hours during peak Beijing teaching times. (All in Eastern time, M-F 5am to 9am, then Fridays night from 8pm to midnight. Saturdays from midnight to 9am, then Saturday night from 8pm to midnight. Finally, Sundays from midnight to 9am). So, not a job for those who don’t like waking up early, but if you want to work on the weekends overnight, that’s an option.

You’d be an independent contractor, so you only get paid if you teach.

Must be able to be silly at times. e.g. using puppets and other props to teach ESL style English classes, singing children’s songs, etc.

Must have good internet speed.
