Yes been "there"..4 decades ago I completely repainted ( murals ) the interior of a major nightclub in the UK..
Couple of years on, my mother told me how she was talking to a woman at a social event at the club, the woman said to her that her son was in the decor and murals business, doing "really well", had a "real trophy" under his belt, the decor they were standing in !
Mother led her and the listeners to a point on the longest wall ( about 45 yds long, my decors went over all the walls , floors and ceilings of each part of the nightclub ) moved a chair out of the way, and said .."really, if you saw your son paint this, how come my son's signature is on every wall and even way up on each ceiling, and how come the photo album behind the largest bar here, of the work in progress and the press cuttings etc all show my son, and not yours"..
Some of my game covers for very early computor games manufacturers in the 80s were on various sites without mentioning my name in the late 90s..that was all back in the day either before the web, or when we didn't think we need to watermark stuff, didn't think there were so many dishonest people about..the web was smaller in the 90s and the cheats and scrapers were much harder to catch..now they think they own what they stole..because we didn't lock it..
