no picture

hello everybody,

bmedesigns found a picture on the web (but not here on dA)

she used it to make a manipulation :thumb361789134:


but

the owner (ChristineAmat) of the original picture After the thunderstorm by ChristineAmat doesn't allow the use of her picture


so

ChristineAmat let her a message to remove the picture she used without permission

... answer of bmedesigns :"I didn't take the picture on your dA page so I do what I want"
(the copyright journal on her profile page is priceless: "If you want me to ask for permission for a photo of yours just ask politely")


ChristineAmat report the deviation => dA remove the picture
bmedesigns make a counter-notification => dA restore the picture explaining that:

"What you do not understand is that when we receive a counter-notification we are legally obligated to restore the removed content unless you initiate a court action- we have no other option available to us. "


every try to explain the situation and to ask bmedesigns to remove this work ended in the same way:
comments  blocked or hidden...


I don't like to see enormous watermark on picture
I don't want to leave dA (I know I must be crazy ;))
I don't want to spend money to hire lawyers to protect my work (in fact I can't afford it =D)

so if you have 5 minutes to lose, try you luck to explain to bmedesigns that
despite all the work she made on a picture if she doesn't have permission to do it, solution is quite simple:
be smart, keep your work for yourself, don't show it publicly

and remember be polite and respectful =D

you can also just report the deviation www.deviantart.com/art/Lost-Wi… (I won't show it twice) for "permission issues" "This Uses Work Which Might Be Copyrighted." "I Don't Think They Have Permission To Post This."


have a nice weekend
regards,
Gilles
