Blatant theft

I must thank
UTXShapeShifter

for bringing this to my attention:

This thief is using my pic
Beach Fur by LupineAssassin
as his profile pic.

If I were still on FA, I would've reported him by now. I ask all of you to report this art thief. Thanks.

Be sure to contact bo-gilliam about the art theft (and modification) as well.

I did. I left a shout on Bo's Facebook with the FA link.

It's been up for 3 weeks and FA ain't done nuthin' about it! >< Is it because it's me that they're dragging their feet (again)?

Dunno... Usually alot of submissions fly rather fast & furious, there, and it's NOT in Beau's gallery (I checked), it probably went by unnoticed.

But as Beau is the artist, he has the RIGHT to scream at the admins for the theft of HIS art.

I know we haven't exactly been on the best of terms, but that's nothing compared to what I've had to deal with thus far. I was perma-banned for the most ridiculous reason (pointing out that someone who was being an asshole was being an asshole - yet he walked scotch-free).

The day after I got banned from that cesspit, I sent an email inquiring as to why I got banned and asked for evidence and all recorded instances where I broke the rules, with no response. A week later I sent another email asking for a response. It has since been over a year, ignored, with no given reason as to why I was permabanned.

FA is a piece of shit, and all the mods there are power-hungry imbeciles that have the "guilty until proven innocent" mindset. When it comes to actually doing their duties they're pretty much the laziest fucks I have ever encountered. Things only ever get done around there when enough users report offending art thiefs and such.

I can't figure out their mindset. I still hope things get better soon.

I doubt it will. I've given up all hope on FA and its incompetent moderators.

He has two other submission's uploaded
He doesn't claim to make or own one he even say's he found it on the internet.
And the other someone say's the artist's name and the guy just thanks them O.o

I think someone doesn't understand how the fandom's sona's, images and most importantly our ownership of them works...
I'm surprised he has no-one cussing him out for the other pics yet.
dmfalk

Because he hasn't been found out...until now.

I suggest contacting the other artists (if you can find them) and the character owners about the other thefts.

He also has a inkbunny and sofurry account and seems to have done the same thing by using someone else's(?) work with his name on it. Plus he's even watching you here so he knows he stole it from you.

Yes, you can- File a Support Ticket to the admins here and at least at SF. I know the admins here WILL deal with the matter.

Thank Goodness this isn't FA- At least here, you have a fighting chance! :)

I fired off a Support Ticket issuing my own complaint on the matter for you.

I'm not exactly friends with Dragoneer, you know... :P Sorry. :(

(FA is the only furry site that won't admit to fucking up-- At least IB and SF do.)

The recent copyright fiasco there, and his handling of it, he earned my respect. He was man enough to say that because of that particular admin's actions, it reflected badly on the site, and Tournal owned up to the matter, saying they "fucked up". Anyone with the balls to admit such a mistake earns my respect.

Ya know, this is the kind of thing I'd expect to see on Facebook (Oh wait I do), but on actual art sites it's just depressing >>

What gets me: 3 weeks and no one on FA blinked yet before I posted this journal. Over 4 years banned, and I still can't catch a break. :P
dmfalk

Part of the problem is, Beau's original version isn't in his FA gallery, so the glaring fact wouldn't be noticed. :P

I assume Beau didn't re-post it yet, after I filed those DMCA's *blushes 3 shades of red* >< I since talked out the DMCA issues with 'neer and 'scigs.
dmfalk

*nod* If anyone has primary rights to post it, it's him-- He's the artist, therefore he owns the copyright.

Good. The more who alert the admins to an art thief on their site, the more likely it'll be at least looked into. I also linked to this journal as my source, so it can be investigated.

Nothing much to add to the above. I did post a support ticket complaining about the art theft/plagiarism. *hugs* 'Neer and his crew , I dunno.

IB brass responded to my trouble ticket: "Thanks for contacting us. As it stands, the user isn't posting anything or breaking rules on IB itself, so we unfortunately have no grounds for follow-up at the moment. If that changes, we can definitely look into the matter on our end."

I sent a full detailed report leading to ypir picture, and to bo-gilliam's pages, telling them about the blatnant stealing, and how he is stalking you, and if they wont take it down for your sake they should do it for bo, becuase it is still his creation, you know?

any ways I will update you on it when it gets updated, loves this big wuffy

*huggles* I hope not only does he get your adt removed but everyone elses' art as well, :( it is sad to see someone who does this, I am not sure if he is a troll or just kind of stupid to the art community rules :/ I am hoping he is just not knowing, but then again he is kind of watching you and did just take and slapped his name on it... at least if he is a troll he will just go away over time right?
