Avsun Update-- Internal Conflict

 While I personally have not commissioned Avsun, I know that there are a lot of people who have and who have had issues with missed deadlines, lack of communication, etc.

I found this Facebook Update, posted yesterday, which might explain some of the issues that have been going on:

"Hey Everyone! Esh is here, alive and no worse for wear. I've been trying to hold Avsun Mascots together through a very messy internal conflict in the company to no avail. Avsun Enterprises, inc dba Avsun Mascots dissolved May 1st, 2011. I want to continue building the remaining accounts as freelance, since I am no longer employed by Avsun Enterprises. I know this is disheartening on many levels but not all is lost, I have already spoken to a few people who would still like me to make their suits. I am currently still in transition but will return to production once I make a place to do so. Please message me here for the time being, Thanks."

Unfortunately it looks like issues stopping production will be ongoing.



Seeking Advice - Someone Claiming © To My Sculpture

Hello! I have a quick situation I would really love to get advice on.

Some time ago I created a sculpture of a dragon jewelry box. I produced quite a few polyurethane casts of this box and sold them.

Now, it comes to my attention that there is an individual (not going to name any names for now) listing the boxes they purchased from me and saying that they're copyright them. I have attempted to contact this person however they are refusing to discuss the matter.

What are my options here? Can I DMCA them to have it taken down (they have pictures of the box listed) or is there a better option? This is highly frustrating to me, especially because they're trying to sell my boxes at a considerable markup from what they paid for them, from me.
