Art Theft on Etsy?

I found this while browsing Etsy just now. I'm not sure whose it is, though. Kati-Kopa's maybe? It's been awhile since I've been active on the archive, so I'm not as familiar with everyone's work anymore.

More theft examples. I can't make it out too well, but it looks as though the signature says Kourukon.

That is Kourukon, such a shame too. This is twice her artwork has been stolen and been sold too.

The image is Kourukon's in all 3 of the links. The seller "conveniently" cropped out the signature.

I'm curious as to what happened to my post, as I'm sure I just responded.

I'll try again in any case. It is kou's work. You can find the original here: http://fanart.lionking.org/piccommen...rideRemake.jpg

Definitely kourukon's work. That image gets stolen a lot, even before she remade it.

A reminder to you guys, the art theft forum is moderated, a mod must approve your post before it appears visible to everyone.

A reminder to everyone, or just to me? I realised what had happened after I hit 'submit' for the second version of my post only to have it dissapear again. I know the forum is moderated, but for some reason I was thinking it was only threads that had to be approved before showing up. In any case, apologies for that.

The picture on the left is Kourukon's, the one on the right looks like kati-kopa's work.

Did anyone actually report this on etsy? There is a button right next to the listing, but I don't want to mess with it if someone already started a complaint.

The first link in the first post still appears as an item on Etsy. Also the Ebay item is still up and doesn't seem to have been reported.
