I ordered a request here and went ahead with someone, we worked together and she sent me “her final design she had made”. I paid and have since started using this logo she apparently made for me.
I have embroidered it onto stock, used on social media and now been called names like a rip off, scammer etc for using other peoples art work.
It turns out the image she sold me is a image on Google searches that someone else has drawn a long time ago. So now 8m stuck, I paid for this image to be made for me to start a business, used it and spent money using it on stock only to be told I can’t.
Where do I stand now?
I need compensating for the loss of stock, time and money paid for the image and my time starting a business on a copyrighted logo image.
This is not on.
