Ok, I got this unusual letter in my e-mail. It is from my service provider (that I pay for my internet). They are forwarding an letter to me that they recieved from NBC Universal Studios. I won't make this long...Universal is basically stateing they I have been distribution unlawful copywrite infringement from them and they aren't really saying they're going to take action, but the first step is to delete all of this and stop the distributing. They listed the so called infringement FILENAME. Well, it's called, "Parks and Recreation (TV).
That's all it says. I know I have painted and drawn some from movies, but I know for a fact that their is NO filename of that, that I have.   And...i have never painted anything from movies, etc relating that parks and recreation.
I know it's from my service provider that forwarded this statement because they have my REAL address at home.
Now, if they didn't think this was some more spam, they highly doubtfully would not be forwarding this to me...unless they thought it was legit.    I deleted all my paintings I had on facebook.
My question is...is it illegal to distribute paintings (photos of them) to show others on the internet? Or is it only illegal to actually SELL such material? I wasn't intending on selling them.
The moment you find yourself mostly satisfied with a painting and think you'll "just quickly" do this or that, that's the moment to stop completely. Take the painting off your easel and put it aside for at least 24 hours, then reassess whether it really needs that tweak.

I would ask to a clarification of what they are actually referring to so that you can rectify the matter.

Yup.....Asked him...do you know ...yes...I told him delete it and be CAREFUL!! I don't think they're going to press charges..i hope now. I suggested they just said...if you persist...

I would definately ask for an exact clarification of what they are referring to. In all likelyhood it's a video of some sort.

But just to clarify, if you post a photo of somebody else's artwork say here on the forum without their permission, then yes it is copyright infringement

Nolan, my son already knows what is up. ...
another story, people across the street from us....well, my son was helping me take the garabage to the road, when the guy calls him over there, I didn't know what was going on..mys son was on the cell phone for 20 min..come to find out..it was 911 telling him to take the KNIFE away from him! Apparently the guy was and did cut his wrist. Fire truck, cop cars, ambulance..all came. It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood...lala.

Pat, a 911 operator told YOUR SON to take the KNIFE away from someone??!!! ??? Did I understand you correctly? If that is correct, that 911 operator needs to be fired!!!!  :nono:  Why would you tell a civilian to unarm someone??? :uglystupid2:

Yes C.B. and I agree of course. The guy wasn't holding it at the time and my son said he wasn't acting distraught or anything either...but how would that operator know that? She should have asked if my SON was ok...and then tell him to get out of there...not to intercept a volital situation..authority????
