My work is no longer allowed on Sofurry

Due to a recent issue with a piece of my work being edited without my permission and posted offsite (Sofurry & Inkbunny) my work is to never be posted to sofurry.com as of September 4, 2013 4:30pm est.

My terms of service have been changed to reflect this: http://reva-diehard.blogspot.com/2010/08/commission-in...

As well as updated to state that you may not change, alter, modify or edit my signature or the piece you commissioned without my written consent. When you are commissioning me you are not buying the rights to the image, you're buying my services. If you would like to buy the rights to the image, we can negotiate.

I apologize for being stern about this, but please understand I've never had an issue like this happen before. Thank you for understanding.

Also thank you to the InkBunny staff for the swift action they took on the removal of the edited image.

Oh gosh, I take it the removal via SF didn't go well. There's another reason I'm not going to use it...

No it didn't. They informed me that because my TOS did not state that the customer isn't allowed to edit their commission, the piece is going to stay there.

You could send them an official legal cease and desist/DMCA to remove the artwork. If you did not explicitly state that she could, and when you did you asked her to remove it, then it must be done. Unless you gave her the copyrights to edit the work, but I'm pretty sure you didn't.

I'm waiting to see what's going to happen but I do have a form filled out and ready to be emailed if they aren't going to change their mind.

Absolutely deplorable. I cannot believe that people running an art site have no idea about copyright laws and what an artist retains of those copyrights -- whether it's in the TOS or not.

Wow, sorry you had to go through that.

SoFurry is a hole full of douche anyway, you're better off without it, frankly.

Ok, so it was your picture that got the recent SF blow up?
Dang, I honestly thought it was another similar fiasco. I didn't hear about this going on until Toumal posted an apology thing.
Sorry to hear about it.

Toumal has made an apology on what I assume is the same matter
