Our images are being stolen every day. Mostly on blogs and websites, this time situation is much different.

US company, called THE MERRICK MINT made special collectible coins with frogs, and on one of them, we found our picture.
Guess what? They didn't ask us for permission to use it! They didn't pay us for our hard work, our equipment, our time. They treat us like garbage, maybe because we don't live in US?

We asked them via e-mail and on their official Facebook profile about this situation. We have no reply and our comments were removed from their FB. What can we do?

They are selling our work, earning money, leaving nothing for the authors of the original picture. This is madness...

You can find their product here (it is not working now):
www.merrickmint.com/amazon-blu…

They removed the product, here is the image that was on their page:

Our original work, uploaded on DA is here:
Grrroooooarrrrrr by Dark-Raptor

We don't know how to act. We are far from US, and we have no time and money to get the lawyer. We are thinking about removing our works from the web...

This is what we get for what we do...
