Ursula Vernon, creator of the web comic Digger, claims that her digital comic, was stolen by NY pop artist Chad Love-Lieberman. The comic book artist discovered the theft when her artwork showed up in a feature story about on Love-Lieberman on Campus Socialite.com. It was inaccurately credited as Love-Lieberman’s work.
Robot6.com has the story: “After running a feature about ‘New York Multimedia Pop Artist‘ Chad Love-Lieberman, nephew of Sen. Joseph Lieberman, the website Campus Socialite retracted its story upon finding out that Love-Lieberman ‘is a fraud, taking other people’s art from the web, touting it as his own, and worst of all – selling it for profit.’”
In a post on her blog, Vernon gives credit to Campus Socialite for removing the story. She writes: “Mad props to the staff at the Campus Socialite, who got back to me in under ten minutes and promised to pull everything and edit the article—they were just as outraged as you’d expect them to be.”
