Unfortunately, some designers don't respect other people's artwork.
Recently, a fan of my artwork sent me a post of a new game named “Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake” and I was shocked! Most of the graphics used on the Game Map are pure copies of my Happy World named Teratakia, which I designed for the awarded game “MonsterUp Adventures” of the swiss company, Karios Games.
Normally, I would have no problem for the designer to be inspired by my artwork but this is really insane, as he has copied the graphics exactly. Even the world is the same: islands on the sea. The mountains, the hills, small details, the sea waves, even the Skull at the right side of the island. This is not inspiration, this my whole world copied by a lazy designer.
Please note, I designed this game in 2012 and “Monsters ate my birthday cake” is released in 2014.

It would be nice if the designer could change the map & graphics to his own creativity.
