I'd first like to throw out a BIG thank you to CUTEPEACH for watching my dino back, that was super sweet of her. When I first read it, I assumed that she meant this mikeopp person was actually using my avi as theirs, so I clicked the page. What did I see?
My avi's face, plastered not just once, but MULTIPLE times all over this simmer's background. I scrolled right down to the bottom of the page and hit the report button, submitting a plagiarism form. That was a couple days ago, and unfortunately, my poor dino faces are still sitting captive in the tiled prison of mikeopp's page.
I just can't quite put together why this simmer thought they could get away with this uncaught. I mean, the picture even has my name on it (in a quite extravagant fashion, I might add)!
If you simmies could possibly do me a small favor, I would be eternally grateful. Either:
1. Head over to mikeopp's page and add her as a friend, then leave her a comment telling her to remove the picture. I would do it myself, but I'm sure she would reject my friend request because she'd know what she did wrong.
2. Head over to mikeopp's page and report it. Maybe if multiple people do so, something will actually be done.
It really bothers me when people use my art without asking, and this definitely isn't the first time I've had to deal with it. Plagiarism is a very serious thing and a lot of people just don't get that.
