EDIT: She does not react to anything. She has had her fair chance. No joke, I will meet with a lawyer about this next week.
Please keep on reposting this as much as you can!

She sells many many DA artworks as print. She has been on facebook as well and also offerend "her" works on her own website, where she does not show the works any more though. She still offers them to people that send her maisl though.
What makes it the worst - she says that WE - the ones who are the creators - have stolen from HER. Let me write the translation of what she states on her website and on google+:
"I am very sorry that your visit will not be worthwhile here .
Today I have decided to no longer make my work accessible to the public , so, no longer unencrypted to show them on the internet.
I hope I can explain to you why.
I know I have every technical means ( watermarks, digital signature and copyright registration in an external database ) used to protect my copyright on my images created since the beginning of 2000 . It did not succeed . It annoys me for years that my pictures stolen and offered on various web portals - as Wallpapers for free download or for good money as a poster. During my free distribution of inferior quality is relatively unimportant - at least as long as you do not obscure my Signum - it makes me pretty on the palm that foreigners earn my intellectual property and real money. Meanwhile, I have reluctantly come to terms with the fact that I can not do anything - registered copyright or not - because I simply lack the financial means , legal action against any copyright infringement, especially if the process needs to be performed abroad.
But what happened today is so incredibly outrageous that it literally beats the crown of the barrel to the face!
They accused me of stealing intellectual property and presented to me as "proof" one by about a third and my signature mutilated , primitive recolored cut my own image , which was also uploaded demonstrably years after the publication on my own site on one of the pirates portals ! Simultaneously Post "friends" of the Plagiatisten offensive and defamatory comments on my gallery pages - a veritable " Shit Storm " .
I was stunned and incredibly angry. Perhaps my reaction is wrong , but after the anger has subsided , I feel just yet deeply hurt and tired. I do not see that I should waste my time with protests and corrections . Instead, I will continue to work and wait in peace if one of the thieves and scammers actually trying to make his alleged authorship of the judicial proof - and thus makes the process even guilty of fraud .
If you are seriously interested in my work , photo books, calendars and postcards , please leave me a message here. Thank you.
With best regards
Go there, give her shit, find your own artwork and bring it to the police. This is what I am doing (my work is there as well) and this is what others are doing. Together we will kick that womans ass!
