Copyright Infringement on Second Life

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on May 31, 2012 by seedydeedee

From time to time, I get the odd note saying “your art’s been stolen – go see the filthy thief here and give them a piece of your mind!”. 9 times out of 10, it’s some 14 yr old kid’s photobucket account, where they’ve dumped a bunch of pics they like, blissfully unaware of copyright infringement. Other times, it’s some Russian (don’t know why, but it usually is!) image site, where there’s a collection of images surrounded by advertising. In both cases, I usually ask politely for those people to remove the pics and promptly forget all about it.

Today, however, a fellow artist pointed me at the Second Life marketplace, where someone is making money selling items with promo images made by doctoring my artwork. Badly. I think I’m actually pretty angry. It takes quite a bit to rile me, but this was no innocent mistake by someone who just liked one of my pics enough to repost it – this person has gone out of their way to find the image, paint over it, and use it to sell their skins.

I’m narked. I shall be putting forward a copyright infringement notice to Second Life.

My Best New Find

Dreamslayer Artworks

Over the last few months, I’ve been really enjoying mooching around this site – I seem to find something new and exciting every day!

It’s a relatively small but passionate community of 3D artists, and unlike a lot of the larger faceless sites, members really get involved and like to share and post encouraging comments on each others’ work. There are some great established names here, as well as budding artists, and there’s always a warm welcome for newcomers.

There are a number of great monthly competitions, weekly features, and more forums than you can shake a stick at – you’re bound to find something that interests you.

The main site is linked above. Other areas well worth a visit are the Gallery and This Month’s Contests areas.

Happy exploring!
