This morning one of less funny her pieces was shared on Facebook by George Takei (which given that he has over 7 million followers is a big thing). Sadly, the website he found the image on - let's name and shame funnyasduck.net - have edited the picture to remove Gemma's signiture and url, replacing it with their own (even using the same font and style!). This is appalling: it is theft of intellectual property.
I know some of my readers who try to make a living out of painting have also had this problem. Now I'm as guilty as any casualty blogger over this - I try to have a picture for every post I make, and I don't always give the source - but for a business to this is out of order.
OK, after the little rant, a new follower welcome to Ian Drury.

Funny As Duck So this is why we got a bunch of e-mails, to clear it up If you look around the other comics on our site you will see we don't remove artists signatures and credit everybody we can. If somebody else removes the signature before we see/get sent the comic there isn't anyway for us to tell unless we know the artists work, in this case we didn't. The watermark was an auto thing that we stopped using a long time ago. We have swapped over the image on our site to the original.
