So Spirit Halloween has decided, without asking permission OR notifying me that they were going to use my makeup design (that I posted on a handful of sites WELL over a year ago) to market a new product of theirs (Horns) that haven’t even been put up for sale yet.
I’m livid.
Contacting them right now.
Anyone know if there is anything legally I can do about it?

To people who keep complaining that I have to have copyrights to my own designs/photos, this should answer your comments/questions.
It is not something that requires paid copyright. The design was considered mine the second it was come up with by me, put on my face, and posted online for the world to see.
And the fact that they are using it to gain money off of DOES indeed make it illegal. If it was nonprofit, it would be fine.

I don’t know where you might have first put the designs up. That site might help you though unless in their fine print they state about it being of public use and not protected in copyright/personal ownership and all that. You might be able to state it was originated there. But they may claim it’s picked up from another source, swiped from you by another. I don’t know if you can win this battle but I do wish you Luck.

The simplest thing I was told in regard to copyrights was when you were intending to share/write/art/ect things, send the idea/piece/concept/outline/ect. to yourself in the mail. Dated, mailed through the post system. DO NOT open it when you receive it again. Put it away where it’s safe. So if something like this came up, that is able to be supported in a court case. It won’t help you now, but this is something to bare mind for later, and share with others.

I originally posted it on here and Deviantart

Shows the Copyright to me (Yay DA for that)
And it shows it was posted WELL over a year ago as the first comment was posted in Jun of ‘13 (Back when I could actually afford to sell the horns for way less haha)

And for those who keep saying “What’s the big deal? It’s just makeup, you should be flattered a big company like that would want to copy you, get over it.”
No. Not only are they using my design to get people to buy their new product, but now there are going to be hundreds, if not thousands of people seeing that makeup, online and in their store on the package and thinking “how cool it is that Spirit would come up with that”, and then either try and copy it themselves or show it off, not knowing that they stole the idea from an artist online without their permission.
They are making money and could gain popularity over a design that is not theirs. And THAT is a huge deal to me when I am trying so hard to get my name out there myself.

astashieldmaiden This is what I was just telling you about.
So I’m making some #faeriewings and am documenting most if what I’m doing (I’ll post a picture of what I’ve drawn later), but these are the #leaves, #flowers and #butterflies I’ve decided to put on the wings. 😊 I’m most likely going to get some more woodland type creatures to put on the wings, but I’ll worry about that later. I’m super excited for these to come to life, and that’ll hopefully be very soon. 😊🌠✨💫🌟⭐️🌿🍃🌺🌻🌷🌸🍄🌱🌼🍁🍂
