We've been following the ordeal since Louise posted about it on Google+.
Here's the original post by Louise.
There's multiple articles about it on various 3D printing blogs:
We, like many others, admire and respect Louise Driggers work. By posting sad face on Thingiverse, she used the Thingiverse platform to raise awareness and cause attention to the situation, which is a great tactic. Multiple complaints have been filed to the eBay sellers by various people and designers in the community are coming together to help stop the violations. Although Louise has succeeded in having the eBay sellers take down her Aria dragon model, there's still thousands of stolen designs listed.
We’re keeping an eye on the situation and know folks in the community are taking action.
Adafruit was founded in 2005 by MIT engineer, Limor "Ladyada" Fried. Her goal was to create the best place online for learning electronics and making the best designed products for makers of all ages and skill levels. Since then Adafruit has grown to over 25 employees in the heart of NYC. We've expanded our offerings to include tools, equipment and electronics that Limor personally selects, tests and approves before going in to the Adafruit store. We pride ourselves on having great prices, the best customer service, technical support and fast shipping. We hope we can assist you on your journey of learning - At Adafruit we celebrate engineering happiness!
