This is great for Etsy but.....

....maybe not so great for the artist who created this work. This article was in my local newspaper this past weekend and it was about remodeling your home. Under the photo of this lovely artwork it said "Etsy art perks up walls but won't break the bank" -- no mention of who the artwork is from. So is this a good thing or a bad thing or a 'not such a big deal' kind of thing? I mean it's great for Etsy that they mention the site, but it may not bring a sale to this particular artist, but it may for another. So what are your thoughts on this, would it bother you at all to have your work show up in an ad with no mention of your shop?

Aw.. I feel for that seller.. I think it would have been the kind to give some props to this artist.. too bad...

it's probably an infringement on copyright laws for them to use the artwork without the artist's permission. But other than that, it's nice to have your artwork shown. I would have liked to be mentioned.... Is that 4 different artists? or one?
