Ego Trips, False Patents, & Artistic License

Ego Trip

So I have been in a WHIRLWIND of emotions lately Mostly AMAZING, but I have had a couple of setbacks!   I have not meant to neglect this blog, but I have been super excited promoting the comeback of ONE of my  MANY FAVORITE movies of all time! I have a Petition to bring #DeadandBreakfast, and epic B Movie from 2004 that people around me seem to have missed completely! I have a petition up to #bringitback from the dead! If you would like to know more about it. Click Random Recognizer up at the top (it should open in a new window), that will take you to my Random Trivia Blog. At the top you will see Petition! Click that and SIGN! And if you want to see the movie Re-released, or turned into a prequel/sequel, SHARE SHARE SHARE! 

Anyway, on with my post! There was this guy, some random guy who was in some band. Anyway, this guy posts a LOT of stuff on his FB, A LOT! I pretty much saw his stuff 80% of my feed, and a LOT of it was REALLY good stuff!!! Well he messaged me in a private window and said "you should slow down on sharing and liking my posts, people will thing you are OBSESSED with me"....

Now come on... REALLY? are you REALLY that full of yourself?
OK.... 1. I have a boyfriend, I love him dearly, and he is WAY more attractive to me (especially after that ugly self-absorbed display of narcissism!) and probably a HELL of a lot nicer and less egotistic than you, no way in HELL I would leave him for your POSTS! GET A CLUE MAN! And MY BOYFRIEND was WITNESS to these comments he made, by the way! lol and  2. Just because people Like and share your stuff, doesn't mean they want in your pants, OK? and his response? "I don't have an ego"

Yeah, that's why you think people who like your posts ARE IN LOVE WITH YOU! HAHA!

So I Blocked his dumb ego driven butt. Do people obsessed with you BLOCK YOU? I don't think so.  An the ONLY reason I bring it up right now, is its MY BLOG and MY RIGHT,...  and in NO way am I saying your name on here, so there! You get no publicity! THANKS for signing my PETITION FIRST THOUGH! LMAO! and this is the last time I EVER mention it again!! :-P

I think I handled it pretty well, USUALLY I would defend myself longer but I decided his dumb butt wasn't worth it, he can go be in love with himself by himself! Too bad though, he did have good posts, oh well, social media always finds its way back around!

False Patents

So anyway, I was on my Zazzle account, and ANOTHER piece of mine was DENIED (BTW, THIS one wasn't  Zazzle's fault really, I am not mad them for THIS instance! I mostly love their site!!) I was PISSED, they "Claimed" 

Design contains an image or text that may infringe on intellectual property rights. We have been contacted by the intellectual property right holder and we will be removing your product from Zazzle’s Marketplace due to infringement claims.

Hmm.....so I wrote them back  that I didn't know what they meant, and could they specify WHY or WHO claimed that they were the property holder, "because it was MY WORK, no one else"
I was informed of this evil company trying to claim ownership of a word, one of which I will NEVER EVER use again, though it starts with a Z, and they use art as THERAPY and MEDITATION... if you get my drift.... I decided to name them the Voldemort of ART... VoldemART (their REAL name being the name of which never to say or use!!)

Basically I am not allowed to refer to a WORD (that has been DENIED 8 times by the patent offices btw maybe they are in DENIAL of being denied so many times!) (Oh, take a look in the comments in the link above, Pay special attention to comment #25 PenandInk777, Aug 15th, 2012 @ 1:17am 
(seriously, read as much of it as you can!)

(read the whole page at the link,  but the following is a part of it that I felt needed to be on here)   

 "Last, I would like to say and no disrespect that they have the right to apply for a patent but to keep applying just for the sake to keep others from using a common well-known art form and to design a kit similar to theirs and profiting from it sounds like monopolizing the doodling repeat pattern art-form and also if they have the longest record of applying for a patent if they are just trying to monopolize this art-form this I would say that it would undermining the system (which is not a new thing) and when their patent gets turned down they have a false claim floating around in their books , but as soon as it gets rejected then they are no longer having a patent pending. Maybe the patent office has a time period for this, and maybe the patent office might need to put a time limited on how many patent a person can make within a given time, because this could be seen as an unethical/dishonest tactic done out of fear trying to manipulating the U.S. Patent Office to protect their profits."

 Just know that the PATTERNS are not theirs, just the title and METHOD in which to DRAW/and TEACH to draw them is.. I am NEVER going to use THEIR method, no will I TEACH their method, EVER!!
But because I didn't bend over and kiss their butts and BEG/PAY them to use the word, they had me MARKED and was denied my RIGHT to sell my art...

Design a unique photo mug.
 I was also informed in the letter that if I just didn't use the word, meaning titled it something else, my work would be fine..... So I did! (My image shows up in the link/image above, yet still not on my ZAZZLE site.... HMMM)

So I decided that I will call my doodle work DAY-DOODLES, I put it back up, and it was approved (at least it SEAMS to have been..), and will sell it that way! I will not be a part of their system, I will NEVER promote their system, in my lifetime. Here is a great article if you ask yourself "what is the difference between Doodles, and VoldemART?" Pay close attention to the bottom of the post, where it says "But "it" Helped my Creativity"

 and THEN look at what Legal Zoom has to say about copyrighting Ideas, Methods or Systems in which they clearly state 
What is not protected by copyright?
1. Ideas, Methods, or Systems
Ideas, methods, and systems are not covered by copyright protection. According to the US Copyright Office, Circular 2, this covers quite a few things including making, or building things; scientific or technical methods or discoveries; business operations or procedures; mathematical principles; formulas, algorithms; or any other concept, process, or method of operation.

Oh, this image below was searched as DOODLE on Google in (labeled for reuse or non commercial reuse), as will be all my images on my blog, except my own images and art of course!)

Anyone who wishes to keep their art protected from this company of GREEDY PEOPLE, then Just use DAY-DOODLE ART THERAPY from now on!  or call it completely a different name! Name it after yourself! BE CREATIVE and ALWAYS CREATE! Do NOT let them take ART AND CREATION from you! :-) 

Artistic License

Art Prints

 Though I still cannot put my MARILYN piece up  on Zazzle, because they "claim" I am violating celebrity rights, they still have 136 pages of Marilyn products that are just PHOTOS and slightly Changed photo graphics as WELL as ARTWORK (and how many of them do you HONESTLY think TOOK those photos of her? huh?) and 56 pages of Marilyn Monroe Products,  yet I still cannot use MY art that I created that expresses MY connection with her and her connection to others, of what makes her human...  but putting her all over in sexy poses, showing the BOMBSHELL, that wasn't the REAL her, BUT THAT is OK to THEM apparently, THAT I still will never agree with!

Apparently Connection to people is Bad, and Using them as a Sex Symbol is good!! 

There are PLENTY of sources that tell you  about the woman BEHIND the Sex Symbol, she had anxiety, she had insecurities, she WAS HUMAN! Forgive me for relating to a sex symbol! I in NO way disrespect Marilyn Monroe, she was a beautiful soul who was misrepresented and had to hide her true self because she was seemingly owned buy the companies that used her image! I am not using her, I celebrate the TRUE WOMAN, insecurities and all! 

I found this page interesting,

IMDB Celebrities who suffer Anxiety, Depression, or other mental disorders 
If you take a look at the COMMENTS... people are RELATING to these celebrities. That is all I am doing in this case. I am also helping people who have trouble believing they aren't alone in this world with their feelings and  fears. I used to believe I WAS ALONE! That NO ONE felt like I did. When I found out that MARILYN had ANXIETY, I SAW that That NO ONE is perfect, and celebrities are REAL PEOPLE, that have REAL feelings, and issues too. And just because celebrities have issues, doesn't mean that they should be put in glass cases and PRETEND that they are PERFECT and IGNORE their issues.

Tabloids/paparazzi make money off harassing celebrities, Why am I getting harassed because I can RELATE to one, or many??

Besides, there is something called Artistic License 
You don't seem to have a problem using Disney's Pocahontas on your products, about 30 pages of products. THAT did not depict the EXACT story of  Pocahontas, yet it was exaggerated and changed to fit THEIR story, with ARTISTIC LICENSE. There are MANY people I have heard that had a problem with that, yet Disney still did it...

I didn't even CHANGE anything about Marilyn, I just remarked on her humanism instead of using her image for sex appeal.

AND if you REALLY had a problem with Celebrity LIKENESS, NO celebrity image or name would be on Zazzle yet I see TONS, I see Quotes of famous people alive and dead, NOR would you be using MONEY, you know CASH or CHANGE?? Because as far as I remember, THERE ARE THE LIKENESS OF DEAD PRESIDENTS on them, NOR would we still have all of the old movies, books especially HISTORY books, magazines, photos, of ANYONE ever alive or dead anywhere in the world unless they okayed the use SPECIFICALLY... Including Biographies and MOVIES about the peoples real lives...
These are a few examples of websites that show Marilyn and her real life, not just the Sex Symbol, but the real woman.  Are THEY violating her rights as well? 

I looked up Celebrity Anxiety
(again labeled for reuse) 
I dare you, try it yourself

Third Row Down
I see this photo

If she didn't have anxiety, then why are images coming up when I search CELEBRITY ANXIETY?

The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe on Lifetime 

 "As her adoring fans would eventually discover, Marilyn’s dazzling charm and flirtatious nature were just an act for the cameras – every day she gave the performance of her life – masking her fragility and secret pain."

 My Week With Marilyn on Psychology Today

"To the men that are drawn to her she is no more than an object, and later a disappointment when they find she is not Marilyn the temptress, but Marilyn, an ordinary person filled with doubts and misgivings like so many others. We find it so clear that behind the image, is someone who is in many ways broken and lost. We can't help but feel empathy for a star who doesn't see how brightly she shines"


 "The film, My Week with Marilyn, is most meaningful perhaps because it illustrates the deepest layers of human authenticity that are so often shielded from the world." 

She was volatile, unstable and impulsive': Marilyn Monroe most likely had borderline personality disorder, new book reveals: Dailymail.com Article by Alexandra Genova 


"While for many, Marilyn Monroe is one of the most enduring sex symbols of our time, behind her perfect curves and sultry personality, lay a complex and troubled woman"

(at first I was worried about this article, but once I read it, I saw that they had NOTHING but respect for her too)

Here is a direct Marilyn Monroe quote from BrainyQuotes

"Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring."

Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring. Marilyn Monroe

And back to my earlier statements of some of these art/product sites.
Now if you went to their website, where I was denied, and searched almost EVERY celebrity name, what will you find? Here are 2 examples I found RIGHT OFF.

I see 1,319 pages of Hillary Clinton and 1,597 pages of Donald Trump
according to your response to me and my ART, wouldn't ALL of THOSE products be violating THEIR rights? Go ask Donald Trump if  EVERY one of those images is OK with him, and then get back to me. I think there are Definitely a few that HE would NOT approve of. That I am sure goes for Hillary too!  YET ALL OF them are approved! And wheres mine? OH yeah on Fine Art America!

Anyway, I am done with my rant. I feel much better expressing myself, and getting this all off my chest. And if any of these companies have issues with further work of mine, THIS is all documented RIGHT HERE for future reference. :-)
