no picture

hello everybody,

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

she used it to make a manipulation :thumb361789134:


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


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… (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
