Default Design contest pisses off artists. Artists fight back

Link

A company holds a stitch contest where all submitted designs become property of said company. No prizes awarded. Naturally artists rebel in the best way possible.

Looks like the company paid attention to the wake-up call. They're now offering a $500 prize, and they're reviewing the way artists are linked and profiled on their site so that they get proper credit.

I've got a feeling whoever came up with the working for free thing is going to be getting a major dressing-down for the negative publicity.
