Firstly, Fantastic post khair di Hug

Ok now on the issue at hand. I completely agree kahir, copying is never really going to stop. I being a siggy maker (and im sure others will probably feel the same way)that if my creations inspire people to make/improve their own creations, I feel good that I helped someone. If they obviously misuse it and copy your work exactly then it is Wrong. If you find out then you can take action, but as you said the internet is for everyone, anyone from anywhere can see your work if they come across it, and you may never find out they copied you.

I have had cases of people copying and pasting my creations to make their own - I sent them a nice pm and kindly requested they don't continue to do so. However, I accept i must be being copied somewhere and personally am also so fed up that i just dont care- if copy cats cant respect another persons hard work then what can you do about it?

I agree no one is 100% original, we have been inspired by someone elses creations. Plagiarism is obviously wrong but you cant accuse someone without concrete proof and as you said a few same pictures or brushes in the same position is not copying.

Oh well...There is life outside IF, more to life than just siggy making...Just Live life and accept that Plagiarism will happen - the internet is a huge world in itself after all...

Totally agree with you Khairruuu Di!! Hug ..This was seriously needed.

I totally agree with you and the point ur trying to put across. Copying is seriously never gonna stop. The internet is like a world on its own..we all live in a world which uses the internet..but we have a life of our own outside of IF and the computer!!

Like you said..no one is 100% original apart from God..and although copying and plagerism is wrong...we can't do much to stop is on the internet!! We can say something once and twice..but if it still happens..there is not point..its like breaking your head on a brick wall. All that i want to say is that If we can't stop it...and we can't do anything about..we're better of moving on in life and doing things that are more important.

Very very VERY well put Khair. I agree with EVERY word you have written! No ONE is original, we all get inspired from seeing works of others .. I know for a fact I do. I look at the works of all the other siggy/avie makers going .. Hmmm... I wonder if I could ever make anything as good as that .. and I try .. And well your're on the internet as Khair mentioned .. EVERYTHING here is copied!! It's not just happening on IF .. it happens everywhere on the internet. I think people need to get over this whole copying issue because no matter what you do it's gunna continue so just be happy making stuff that others will appreciate.

Khair I completely AGREE with each and every word of ur's!Wonderful opinion put in!! Big smile
Although I do make siggys but I don't seek myself as a dedicated siggymaker.Infact I am not even that good in Art. For a matter of fact,playgirism exsits everywhere in the world but surely creativity is completely unlimted.I may not sometimes find a difference between how much a siggy/avi looks "similar" but I do have seen works been copied and not inspired.
I am thankful to the forum,because we can voice our opinion without pointing anyone in an indecent way.
Coming to IF,there is an immense flow of lovely artwork here,and each and every person gets inspried to showcase their talent and creativity.The praises here keep flowing which does encourage us to do good work!!
Guys..lets not forget that even though its ur hobby,you might put that in use.Like for example,when I am currently doing a coursework in english,I am making little siggys to make the coursework look much more artistic and beautiful.Its good that we all can learn about "visual" Art and share our knowledge with others about it.Later on who knows good siggy makers or who are constantly helping,may step in to be a good animator in a film industry or open up an animation business!
All wht I want to say that,keep continuing ur creative work because every piece of urs keeps improving time-to-time and believe me it does help you get rid of stress/tensions Embarrassed

Well Khair pretty much said everything I wanted to. Tongue And I continue to talk in a slightly harsh vein.

I'd like to add, if you're SUCH a stickler for originality and what not - stop using celeb pics then. They are someone else's creations already and you do not hold the copyrights to them unless you took those photographs yourself. And what about the various techniques you use to come up with funky effects? You invent them in late night frenzy of brain activity? I dont think so. You probably got it from someone else's tutorials. Come on, if you're going for originality and only using your own stuff then why not go all the way?

And besides, what is the issue here? Are people making money off your "creations"?? Are they being lauded academically and given grades for it? I doubt it. I could understand if they were getting some renumeration that you arent/rightly deserve but such isnt the case. You're getting the "OMG WHAT AMAAZING CREATIONS!!!" and they are too. Get over yourselves.

Very well said [er..written LOL ] Khair!

I will be straight up and say that if I see something I will unconciously do it in another way....but isn't that being inspired? I mean the only way I see 'Coping' is if you cut out someone's own work and present it as yours.

The truth is, that being on a site as HUGE as IF or even the internet if you look at it, and you write/make things and post them anywhere on the internet then it will probably inspire someone and if they do anything as close to something as you did, it won't be copying because they did not do everything the same as you did...I take that as being inspred. Yes, even then people should try to change it up, and put there on Jhaska to it...

Big smile
