An Open Letter to Victims of Copyright Infringement

The following is an excerpt from an email directed at artisans and small business owners who have been victims of copyright infringement. The original email was written by Sarah Stacey, founder of the Facebook pages "What I Bought vs. What I Got" and "I Love What I Got".

My Fellow Artisans,

I'm writing to ask you to give me a few moments to discuss a matter plaguing every corner of online retail; something that is a concern for every legitimate ecommerce merchant. I know how busy you are, so I won’t waste your time, but I promise you, this letter will change the course of your online business, should you choose to take advantage of an incredible, limited time offer. And, while this is a bit of a sales pitch, be assured that a sales pitch is not all this is. Read on to discover how you can proactively protect your business from intellectual property theft.

My name is Sarah Stacey, and you may know me from my Facebook page, What I Bought vs. What I Got (WIBWIG). In the past, I have spoken with many of you personally about featuring your shop or website on WIBWIG’s sister page, I Love What I Got, a page dedicated to finding the owners of the images and content stolen by online scams. Today, I'm here to tell you that these scams are only gaining momentum and are not going away without an ounce of prevention and a pound of cure. Unless someone steps in, we will be left only with social media safety theater in a backhanded race for the almighty dollar.

On both What I Bought vs. What I Got and I Love What I Got, I am constantly asked, "Where do I find the real thing?" I get messages every day from those seeking to find you glorious artists and designers out there; most of the time, after they receive whatever garbage these scam sites send (or sometimes don’t). I often see individuals who are so excited about what they bought that they refuse to believe they have been deceived, and others who are satisfied with the knockoffs they receive, citing lower cost for the "same" items when they continue to patronize fraudulent sites. These scams are making it impossible for consumers to understand what a quality, handmade item actually costs, and are driving consumers away from ecommerce!
