⚫️::::YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE::::⚫️
Today infringement is rampant on the Internet facilitated by service providers who provide an almost uncontrolled forum. All artists are susceptible. While the DMCA protects the service providers, in most cases from suit, the perpetrators are not protected.
In 2016 I discovered extensive infringement of my artwork, ‘’Metamorphosis’’ that was committed in England and the United States by Stephen Ormerod. I brought a lawsuit against him for his willful copyright infringement.
I am pleased to announce that the Federal District Court in New York (Docket 18-cv-3020) granted judgment against Ormerod, in my favor for $100,000.00 for his willful and extensive copyright infringement.
A copy of that Judgment is posted here. Ormerod is now serving a prison sentence in HM Prison in Preston, England.
It is my intent to continue to protect my rights in the future.
So I was at my corner ''Plant Shed'' Store re-potting my cactus into larger vase and saw ❤️❤️Peter Max sitting in back of Store in the cafe having a cake with some friends and I went up to him and said " excuse me but You Are Peter Max, right? ...and he nodded his head YES..and I reminded him how he met with me when I was 19 years old, alone in NYC with 500 dollars in my pocket, standing in a phone booth, looked up the word 'ARTIST' saw his name and called and needed a job . He said if I had the nerve to call then he had the nerve to say OK... he found my first job for me, and that was 53 years ago!!!!!!!!!💛💚💗💜💙
Peter Is now older too and has dementia but I stayed and told him that he will always be in my heart where he helped me out in my time of need so long ago.
...He asked me how I did in the Arts and I said at this time in my life, it was rough but very good to me in the end and how I am setting up a foundation to pay it forward when I die to help other artists .
...He smiled, gave me 2 thumbs up and said...GOOD FOR YOU!.....I told him that he mattered so much to me and I was so very lucky to see him 53 years later to say THANK YOU
WAS A GREAT DAY! for the both of us. 💛💚💗💜💙-s.wolk 2020
