This is Melanie and I am a licensed illustrator.

I was puzzled, frankly speaking, when I came across my images at your website. If you use a copyrighted image without my permission, you should be aware that you could be sued by the copyrigh owner.

It’s against law to use stolen images and it’s so mean!

Take a look at this document with the links to my images you used on your website and my earlier publications to obtain evidence of my copyrights.

Download it now and check this out for yourself:

If you don’t delete the images mentioned in the document above within the next few days, I’ll write a complaint on you to your hosting provider stating that my copyrights have been infringed and I am trying to protect my intellectual property.

And if it doesn’t work, you may be pretty damn sure I am going to report and sue you! And I will not bother myself to let you know of it in advance.
