SashaBelle

Doppelgangers on F-List

https://www.f-list.net/c/sasha%20belle/

Just so you know, these two aren't me, nor are any other SashaBelle impersonators! I found these two when I decided to make an F-List, when to my surprise, my name was already taken! Twice!

I can't say I'm mad, really. Personally, it's a little flattering. However I can say I'm super bummed my character was taken from me in a sense, and now I can't enjoy any potential raunchy RP romps on the site because at least two other people are enjoying them for me! I've gotta wonder why they wouldn't just make their own characters. I mean, it'd be a whole other thing entirely if it was a similar character that just used my pictures, but they had to go and use my name, too! Okay, maybe I'm a little mad...

Assuming these two are watching me on here, I'm asking you nicely to take them down. It's not that hard to make up your own character. You just have to use your imagination! In fact, I might just hold a sexy little pic I was ready to post ransom until you do! Be cool, guys!

Love, the ORIGINAL SashaBelle~ <3

Edit: The one IS me until I can get my little paws on my official name. https://www.f-list.net/c/the%20real%20sashabelle

You can talk to the f-list people and get them to remove them if you want, you just have to prove that you are the artist.

Not only can you talk to the FList people you should. Its your character gal durnit, and a cute one at that. Its the equivalent of someone making their own cosplay suit and then renting it out at parties...or in this case sexy parties :B

I honestly can't say I'm fully on board with this one.  True, he is your character, but at the same time the plethora of Spyros, Tailses, Sonics, Bowsers and Lola Bunnies on F-list aren't being made by people who first created the character, either.  It seems like a double standard to me that a semi-well-known artist can say whether or not others can roleplay using his character while big name trademarks just have to put up with the fact that their character's just too well-known to not have someone do such a thing.

Oh they could do something. if they had the time and patience to sift through all the porn and sue all the people doing it.

porn is not really copyright infringement though character theft is using a character as a identity for yourself without permission is practically identity theft its like if someone went and murderd many under your name you gain that rep and or lose rep based on whats done.

Personally, I don't agree with it when people base their characters off of digimon or the like, but at least in those cases people usually add more to their personality and even have a different name to make it at least a little bit their own. These two are just blatantly playing as my character.

Also, FURRY characters are different in the sense that they're not just characters, they're identities. When I post art of Sasha, I'm conveying that this is an extension of myself within these pictures. In neither of these profiles are either saying they're not me, causing people to mistake them for me. This aspect affects me directly.

No, I don't have any legal rights over my character, and I'm not necessarily entitled to the exclusive use of my own creation, but all I'm saying is it just feels like people are borrowing my identity and are piggy backing on my creativity and it makes me uncomfortable. So no, it's not illegal, but if I am allowed and able to stop it, I don't think I'm wrong to do so.

thats the issue with using a character people go there to roleplay but do not get the idea of how the site is supposed to work they think that because they have a your character that using names means that character personality is then theirs but yet do not know that its also a site that shows your's and sona/characters traits its an archive for your personal character not a allready preexisting character to be used in roleplay.

despite the flattery i still do not think that allowing someone to use your character is the right thing to do, i know people like your character but it is yours and I know if someone wanted to be me i would say get my permission first its fine but get it before using because its like someone trying to be you its practically identity theft.
SashaBelle

Yeah, the more I dwell on it, the more uncomfortable I get. Though I figured I'd ask politely first instead of starting a shitstorm and getting all worked up. If I don't get any response to this, I'll contact the people at F-List and they'll probably take them down for me, and if not, then I guess that is that.

Really would like to join F-List as me instead of making another character like THEY should XD

my name tends to have a few people using it the cobalt part anyways too many people, but then agan no one ever really trademarked cobalt blaze like it have so meh made it my own but yeah you can only do so much.

 its kinda sad people would use someone elses character and not just make their own they could just use yours as a template and design a new name and identity for it instead.

for example, using someone elses character is like someone trying to be you elsewhere its both unoriginal and ruins any chances you have because someone wanted popularity and refused to build a popular life.
its unfair because its like sharing popularity or stealing someones life almost like murder but without death just someone not being able to cope due to other people using their name.



 like I am known not a popufur but still known enough by three main screen names under pale tailed fox or paletails or just cobalt blaze (in many formats)  and tbh if people tried stealing my identity i would probably throw a massive shitfit because it is pretty bad to take someones character and use it.

I have the same issue...Sorta... When I made my Character, I used "Kage Klaxon" only on SL (which is the only place I ever really have a need to post my F-list) SL will automatically recognize %20 as a space, so people will only get f-list.com/kage (or w/e) and it goes to a different person named "Kage" who likes EVERYTHING except like...3 things... So then I'll get a host of people thinking I love this and that when I reeeaaally dont D:

It happens a bit around there. Luckily I nabbed my name before anyone did, although I have found my likeness floating around there numerous times. But at least they were respectful to put that it was copywritten to me. You should at the VERY least ask them to do the same.

A true Sasha fan would do that. n.n

Same crap happened to me recently. It's weird... why do people do this?
Exelbirth

I'm assuming it's mostly because they want people to think they're famous. That's the positive way to look at it. Another possibility is that they want to tarnish Sasha's name by doing things s/he wouldn't do, making people expect the real Sasha to do them.
SashaBelle

I think they just see characters they like and want to play as them. I don't think it's necessarily about fame or reputation. It's sometimes more satisfying to take from something that's already created and well conveyed than to make your own from scratch. Like why some people write so much fan fiction rather than write their own original stories.
EtherSaga

They should at least ask... at the least.
SashaBelle
5 years, 9 months ago
Yeah, I'm not saying I agree with it, just that I understand it.

happened to me recently, someone said they found one of my characters on F-list, and i never put her up, so i checked the link they sent me, and it was indeed her. took pics from my page, and made up a whole backstory and stuff. I went to ask them about it, and the page was immediatly erased. I managed to get incontact with the person, since they felt bad about it, i was really curious about all the backstory and stuff they wrote, but the kinks they used for her, were definitly not right, waaay off.
