Weird News: Nephew of Joe Lieberman Accused of Massive Online Art Fraud

Posted on | August 21, 2011 | 5 Comments

Chad Love-Lieberman, 34, reputed nephew of Connecticut Sen. Joseph Lieberman, has been accused of copyright infringement and fraud.

Love-Lieberman’s alleged fraud was exposed after an online publication Campus Socialite picked up a story from the South Florida Chronicle about Love-Lieberman’s self-proclaimed success as a “multimedia pop artist.” Campus Socialite further asserted that Love-Lieberman had taken out a $1.4 million insurance policy on his own testicles.

This publicity proved Love-Lieberman’s undoing: Several artists have now claimed that supposedly “original” art that Love-Lieberman sold via the Web sites Art4Love and MarkYourSpot — both now offline — was actually pirated from their work which the artists had posted at the Deviant Art site. Love-Lieberman reportedly sold the fraudulent copies for hundreds of dollars each, and is now the intended target of a planned class-action lawsuit organized by one of the artists claiming infringement, on behalf of more than 100 other of Love-Lieberman’s alleged victims.

    I hope this travesty becomes an opportunity for many more people to see–and purchase–the ORIGINAL art.

     I am one of those who art he stole, and a lot of my friends on deviantart had their stolen too. Now I do not know if Chad is Sen.Lieberman’s nephew or if it is just a claim of his. However this guy did wrong to, as of last count over 300 artists, and still climbing as we find more, and needs to pay for what he did IMHO.
