Since past few months we have noticed the Merging/Morphing of pictures that has been going on in the forum. It started of with a couple of people and now the entire forum has rolled into Merging Business.
Taking the original photos and putting desired faces of your favourite actor/actress is wrong as you are messing with the copyrights of the original photos.Not only Telly stars but the photos of Bollywood celebrities are being badly morphed and turned into signatures, but what about the copyrights? Violating the original copyrights of the photos and then putting your own name tag is fraud.
The fans of those stars are getting offended and I am sure if ever the stars visits our site they will neither find it impressive
I have talked to Vijay bro about this matter, and he has issued this new rule.

Yes its wrong as this is just the beginning and will become a bigger problem if we do not address it now.
I think the members posting this kind of has to be asked not to do that.
We all expect you to abide by the new rule.
Signatures/Icons which has been made from the morphed pictures will not be allowed on IF henceforth.
It is impossible to remove/trash all the signatures that has been made with the morphed pics, so we request you all to not make them in future and also remove if you have one in your sigbox asap. Its very difficult for us to scan through each and every gallery/shop and warn the members to stop using morphed sigs or make sigs with morphed pics.Thus its a sincere request if you see anyone using any such sigs/avatars then please ask them to remove it. If not then hit the REPORT button to bring it to the DT members attention.
