There’s a seller in China copying Paul Richmond's work and selling it as his own. Paul and other friends are generating a good amount of publicity by writing to him and posting the correspondence on Paul's blog. They want eBay to take a stance against this kind of copyright infringement that affects so many gay artists – Steve Walker, Michael Breyette, Adam Bouska, and many others.

Paul has started a Facebook group to act as a petition to eBay:

As a way to generate interest, he is holding a contest for anyone who helps publicize the group by posting the link on their profiles, blogs, Twitter, and other social networking sites before Friday September 17 at midnight. You just need to e-mail him with links to your posts and you will be entered in a drawing for a free print of Paul's painting, “On Display, Starring Michael Breyette.” If you post it multiple places, each post counts as one entry and helps increase your chances of winning. Yoy can use this e-mail address to send the link: prichmond1287 (at) earthlink (dot) net.

it's what he is trying to understand, you can probably ask him directly on FB or if you don't have an account, on his blog.
