Copyright Thief Steals from Anne Fisher Needlepoint

A sharp-eyed shop owner noticed a fake Anne Fisher canvas and alerted the artist, who is understandably upset.

Remember, every time you buy a canvas of a sports or fashion logo, that is of a famous person, that shows a food label, copies a book cover exactly, or shows a movie, cartoon or tv show character, you are buying stolen property unless the needlepoint designer has arranged to pay a fee to the design owner to use their work.

If the original work has been licensed, the needlepoint canvas will state that.

There are so many wonderful original works of art on needlepoint canvas, it's a slap in the face to those artists if you continue to buy stuff that rips off another artist, a company or a sports team.  If you notice something that seems wrong, ask your shop or alert the designer.  

And never ever buy a copyright violation. If these thieves didn't make money off stolen goods, they'd stop ripping off the owners of the copyright.
