First and foremost … I just want to deliver an open, and honest “FU¢K YOU” to the “Fair Use Act”, and an ACTUAL “what the FUK!?!?” to those it protects. Almost a year ago to date (Jan 2015) I awoke to a barrage of  texts stating my work was popping up on Madonna’s FB, IG, and Twitter, with tens of thousands of shares ! ! ! At first, I thought … “WHOAH! / COOL!“ but shortly there after, it sunk in.  I contacted her agent Liz Rozenberg, and received no response! In the meantime, I found out digital collage ‘artist’ BessNYC4 was the one who sent the work to her, merging MY ART with her head, and reaping all the benefits.. Things petered out, and I more or less forgot about it; u n t i l … early Oct 2015. I found out (for all intents and purposes) MY ART was used in her concerts, despite my attempts at getting proper credit acknowledgment,  etc. I made a post / got a lawyer, and was hoping for justice. Lawyer said “PULL THE POST!” and it was determined “Fair Use Act” which protected THEM / HER and the articles covering the story made ME out to be the bad guy. What the fuk? HOW? Anyone with eyes can see they did … anyhow, this is a rant how WE ARTISTS are taken advantage of, as you can see in THREE of my pieces … . #dannyquirkartwork #madonna #fairuseact #bullshit
