This person posted in my badge group’s donation thread looking for donations for a set of “rainbow pup” badges. The images are stolen from another badge maker by the name of Mkukni. http://gyazo.com/312e572c8e831bffaf59e5f446ca2a35 These badges actually belong to Mkukni, who was accepting donations from them months before this newer user even joined IMVU. ...
Boxy@IMVU is a thief!
I added this girl a while back, and I would notice her DPs every now and then. So finally I googled the images, and I’ve found two DP’s. One per day. The first is the stolen one, then the other is the original. Then there is these: You can see where she removed the name as well. Unfortunately she changed the image by now, but here’s a screenshot of her using the second...

"Couperet" /Posting as an Information
http://couperet.deviantart.com/ So recently this person on dA made their account and named it after my Tumblr user name, I’m assuming. I have NO connection whatsoEVER to this person. But, the name kinda irritated me, they said their name was like this, also on Gaia. So I looked, and as you can see in the link, they stole one of GASP’s work. ...
Anonymous asked: Is it considered stealing to save stuff to your computer, with no intention other than to look at it now and then and admire it? Should I be messaging these people and asking? T__T I dont wanna be a theif

I was so heart broken to see one of my favourite pieces being used by someone else. Not only that, but when I confronted her about it, she blocked me and refused to take down my art as her room pic as she claimed she found the piece on Google and Google made things Free for everyone to use, that if I had a problem, take it up with them. Her friend then joined the party and put my...
Anonymous asked: For the last guy saying this blog is "harassment/slander." Imagine paying $25 dollars for a piece of art. You don't make that much money, so 25 is a LOT. Or you work for DAYS on a piece and feel super proud of it. A few weeks after you receive/make your piece, you find some new user using/trying to sell your image without permission. Do you know how much that SUCKS? Apparently...

This is Pantie @ IMVU I finally came into contact with AmDisDragoon and she apologized for stealing, she didn’t know it was wrong. So she apologized and took down the stolen DP ( Yayy! )

These group of girls, all friends, took pictures from a site that does characters and commisions. A few of these are commisioned pieces, which cost the buyer 200$+ Canadian so … not cheap. The site they come from is http://www.pinupbombshells.com/gallery.html

Anonymous asked: Did you cover OFWGgraphics yet? They're page is full of DP's that are for sale but suspicious.
Anonymous asked: Hi, isn't it NOT art theft if they just use it for their own use, as in just using as their DP? Like, I understand it being theft when they take one that was meant for someone, and they put their own name on it, but when they just use a picture, and don't claim it in any way as their own, it's not theft.. right?

[AMR] Stolen Textures?
I was recently browsing the shop and saw a product by the developer AMR. It looked suspiciously familiar so I started browsing his shop. There were several items that also looked familiar. I have not known any of these developers to give out their textures or sell textures. I believe these products to be stolen. If anyone knows otherwise, feel free to correct me. Shop:...
Anonymous asked: How did Vixxen steal if on her product page for the dress it says "Derived from a quality Sinfully file." or was this overlooked? Cause It looks like it was a file sale thing, not a theft.
Anonymous asked: Just putting this out there about Vixxen, she sometimes uses file sales, so she could of bought that item from another developer in a file sales shop. Just saying, since the case hasn't been resolved or confirmed as theft yet.

This is about the edit I did, that I used Boi’s tutorial. Since I cannot get on gasr to retrieve the message I had sent him about the base sketch. I will just clarify. I messaged him asking about the base sketch, if I could use it or not. He replied saying yes, that is what its there for. So, the base sketched which was included in the tutorial is for using. You can ask for more proof from...
