We saw a plethora of cases about plagiarism whether it’s in the art industry or writing. In this cause, there is always something up to read about. A case related to this happened in Pakistan where a female designer named Shehzil Malik claimed on a well renowned Pakistani brand Gul Ahmed, that their staff forged her designs on clothes, displays as their own.

Ah, today it’s Gul Ahmed who has stolen my artwork. One is literally my display picture on their kurta, the other is my Brown is Beautiful artwork. Are these design teams not aware that they are stealing from a local artist? I am at a loss.

This is what she posted on her Facebook page yesterday with pictures and her followers filled the comments box with different suggestions, most of them said gently communicate with them they will pay your due as it is the more sensible step to move ahead, some of them appeared with the strict ideas, they responded to file a case against them.

One of the famous quote on stolen work

If you plagiarize others’ techniques, you steal their emotions and tell your spectator a lie with your work. Works as such equal to zero.  Wu Guan-Zhong

Well, if we look into her narrative of claiming, it looks like this is not the first time her work stolen as she mentioned “Ah, today”, but she didn’t show her designs on the post as one of her follower comment about it that shows your design too so we can verify that these are yours.

A question may arise in the mind “What should be the right way to sort out matters like this?” Be gentle is the wiser step in any sort of matter, firstly she should communicate about this with the higher authorities of Gul Ahmed they will cooperate as they have to maintain their reputation in the state contrarily the second option for her is to go with the law and filed a copyright case against them.
We should learn ethics from stories like these that if you took other’s work, you stole their emotions as they put their energy, creativity and their precious time in it, therefore we should create our own masterpieces rather than plagiarized from someone else’s.
