Intresting!

If you're going to rip people off, please do a better job at covering your tracks. Like, for example, change the object name. Thanks!



Support the hardworking content creators in SL who spend countless hours making things, rather than pathetic thieves who try to cash in on our work. tinker Hax, can I please have my 100L$ back?

Not only do I HATE people who aren't creative enough to make their own stuff, I hate when people take awesome and make it blah (the original is awesome btw)

Your's looks better anyway. I haven't got these..so I think I'll pop over to buy a pair..a little "Up Yours" to the ripoff merchant as well.

Ehhhh, yer not the only one who was ripped, being suspicious as I always am. (If there is one copybot item there is usually 25) I found my knuckle buckle belt, with my own textures on it (Best way to check ... if it's mod click to change the texture, yours will magically be waiting from your inventory folder highlighted) and when the belt was inspected there was a prim still labeled from Kari! The belt shape is stolen from Menno. Either this person is extremely lazy or wants to be found out that she is a thief ... either way I am more than happy to file a DMCA.

Also half of her store has artwork from http://electronicrainbow.deviantart.com/

I won't be doing ANY shopping there EVER. Artilleri = Love N Happiness!

I am so sorry to hear this all. This theft has taken all pleassure to create new things. Someone is selling multiple stolen textures of me FULL permission at XStreetSL.com and LL is taken for ever to remove these ( filed allready 3 DMCA's on this person, and still she is ripping people off and selling... )

Emma Gilmour said...

This is so.. just.. ugh. :( I think the best way is to just keep spreading the word cause LL will sit on their bums til they get around to it, but every shopper who finds out about the theft will HOPEFULLY make the right choice and just not shop at this girl's store anymore (or from those people on XStreet, iki, MAN that sucks I'm so sorry to hear that! :/)

FFS. Sorry you got ripped Antonia. But thank you for sharing because I thought that person was ok before this.

im not sure what to say in this instance, other than i know there is another side of the story, and that emails have been sent explaining this. That KARI has removed their post about this event. That there is more to know and understand about this, every story has two sides and this is one of those times when that rings clear. This post is very very damaging, as is the fact of what happened. Just hope the right person's name is in line on this one, and that maybe a revision of this post is needed. thats my peace, thx.

Antonia my sincere apologies to you, I had no idea and I feel horrible about it. I will make sure her pictures are pulled from the accessories display asap. I do not condone theft in any way and I am really upset that someone who knows they stole something would be brazen enough to agree to have that item shown on air! So again my apologies to you. ---Angie

LOL at the copybotter.

Sounds to me like a lame excuse and a desperate attempt at getting away with it. An avatar and it's actions is still the property and responsibility of it's owner.

Pwnd!

What a stupid theif.

Nimil said...

its pretty obvious that this girl knew what she was doing. even if she said "oh someone else gave them to me" she had to know she was stealing because she left the names of the original creators on those pieces! not to mention all the art she stole from electronicrainbow on deviant art, who i have been in contact with and have given her the link to SL's dmca info.

down with art theft! of all kinds!
