It's so brutal, I would love to boycot Olily but as they always are to expensive for me, it will not hurt them. What can we do? No more work on the internet? They steal designs from magazines or shows.
And we would have not much fun anymore on the net.

Your vikings are such good men, they would now how to deal with copycats. Just let the axe swing.

oilily copycats = so not cool

It is horrible that Oilily felt they needed to steal designs instead of create their own, but think about what the situation would have been like if they copied Rosa's dolls 5 years ago. Then, she wouldn't have had the incredible power of blogs to tell her side of the story and create important public awareness. Boo Oilily (I'd join the boycott if I had ever been able to buy their products in the first place). Yay Rosa Pomar and fellow bloggers who will undoubtedly force action on this and hopefully even prevent more of it happening in the future.

Hello Sandra and Friederike!

Well done for those wonderful paperdolls!

And thank you very much for pointing out Oilily's scandalous actions! I've posted abou it on my blog and have used the Boycot-button. It is really outrageous.

I have been a big fan of Oilily in the past, but will never buy anything by them again.

Best wishes,

Glad you are feeling better and love love love these cheeky paper dolls!
I was shocked to read about Oliliy, as you said 6 years ago their designs were so original and identifyable, it is such a pitty they have sold out :(

Rosa said...

shame on Oilily! I read about it last week and now I also posted about it. as some of my texts and illustrations about aromatherapy are also stolen quite frequently I am afraid that most people think the web is a help-yourself-for-free-shop... are you sure your funny wikings aren't being produced and sold somewhere? I hope not! eliane
