    Default I Outsourced a Thief from 99Designs

    Some of you may know that I use 99Designs to create some of my T-shirt drawings for my hair site. I create the text and shape images in Photoshop, but outsource the actual drawings. Well recently I got an email from the original owner of the design that appeared on one of my shirts.

    He was not happy and rightfully so.

    Apparently the designer I hired on 99Designs stole the image, removed the watermark and passed it off as his own. It was so easy for him to pull it off because my specifications were very broad. And he was able to make the adjustments I requested by simply editing the image.

    So just a heads up.... be careful with outsourcing on these image contest sites. If you have a specific design you want then there's less of a risk. But when you use these contest sites, the whole point is you don't have an idea for what you want and are looking for design ideas. I just happened to like the design he submitted "as is" and had no idea he had stolen it. So it's easy for people to rip off designs and pass them off as their own.

    Fortunately 99Designs refunded me my $200+ dollars and the designer understood. They also terminated his 99Designs account. The good news is I now have a designer that I will probably work with from time to time. I told the original owner that I would be sending him some work now.

    Just a heads up. Be careful with outsourcing certain things.

    Yea it happens way to much. I can't even imagine how much theft goes on at stock image sites either.

    Usually these contest sites are vigilante and pull anything they know is copyright asap.

    It's good that you found the original designer though... you found the needle in the haystack and you can have an honest working relationship.
