Hey all, so it has come to my attention that someone has used my work in a youtube video they made. It involves a werehog render I did with the addition of fart sounds. I would like to thank a member in my discord server (I dont know if he wants shouted out for this) for calling my attention to this. I feel a little insulted by this as I would have probably gave him permission to use it if he asked. I would have asked him to just credit me/link to my original work. What rubs salt in the would for me is, the guy has almost 3000 views while my original submission is barely close to 600 (at the time of writing). Not to mention, I DONT like fart content. As it seems, however, I am not the only person to have been affected by this dudes thievery either, to which I have sent messages to other artists I was able to identify and inform them of it happening to them too.
Again, if you want to use my work, either ask my permission or give me credit (or both). Since this guy decided to put little to no energy into either option, I have instead decided to put in a little more effort myself and leave a comment on the video. I am currently also deciding whether I should submit a DMCA takedown request.
