    Plagiarism: No action because it's just "heavily referenced"?

    Take a look at this photo. Then take a look at the related court case. The image on the right by Prince was determined to be sufficiently transformative to be 'fair use' under copyright law. Yes, you can heavily reference a photo without the photographers permission and not violate copyright...

    This is why you don't boast about your big lawsuit plans without even talking to a lawyer first. :X

    FA/IMVU Discussion

    http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/6606222/ Is anyone else wondering why Strypes gets to 'Poke Dragoneer about it' when everyone else must to go through a DMCA process? This seems like special treatment for a certain class of furry artist.

    Let's not kid ourselves. You most certainly DO care about user popularity. You HAVE TO. It would only take the 20 most popular artists on FA to leave and setup shop elsewhere to turn FA into a ghost town within twelve months and you looking for a new job. That is HOW social networks...

    FA/IMVU Discussion

    You had TWO MONTHS after selling FA to IMVU to look into IMVU and how it operates, to see that it is FULL of jacked furry art, that is sold and where IMVU ultimately receives all the revenue generated by it's virtual currency, why did you not spend any of that time preparing a solution for this...

    But this burden has never existed on FA. No one was ever going to go 'Well, how on earth do we know that this AshleyAshes account isn't the Alt and Honest-And-True account for Strypes? We better play it safe and leave it'. No, they'd HOSE THE GALLERY. Hell, if I did it enough, they'd ban me...

    Just to be clear here: Even you, as an IMVU employee, can't really do anything about pirated materials on IMVU. You can't be like 'Hey guys, this is clearly pirated, hose it' but instead you have contact the artist and make THEM file a LEGAL THREAT against IMVU just to make any of the gears in...

    http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/6603906/ Onta's jumping ship. That's a pretty big name to lose for FA, it's like a mall losing it's Target, not good for the whole mall. This IMVU thing might be where FA finally sinks.

    Much more seriously, the IMVU situation is pretty simple. IMVU profits from the sale of these pirated artworks. These profits are part of the funds that not only purchased Fur Affinity but go into each and every one of Dragoneer's paycheques now that he's on IMVU's payroll. Dragoneer and IMVU...

    Do you... Think that people in this thread LITERALLY believe that your head is PHYSICALLY up Dragoneer's rectum...?

    Historically speaking, Weasyl has seen a large spike with each major fuckup carried out by FA. Hiring a rapist, hiring a hacker and now this. While there was a reduction after each spike, the 'norm' was noticeably higher after than it was before. Basically, FA has been largely responsible for...

    https://status.weasyl.com/munin/weasyl.com/web1.i.weasyl.com/weasyl_active_sessions_1h.html The numbers would show that Weasyl's usage has actually jumped significantly since this IMVU went down. Weasyl: The only furry site not afraid to share it's usage statistics and in detail even!

    Yes, you would, you would have to prove in court that you created the work originally but in the vast majority of cases, proving ownership would not be difficult. In addition to this, it's unlikely that IMVU would ever contest ownership, they'd attempt to contest liability, assuming they didn't...

    Yeah, I'm just moving my situation to Weasyl now. Weasyl is kinda just nice. Even it's forums are nice. Hell, I'm AFRAID to post on the forums half the time, less I needlessly jerk the place up. It's THAT nice. Though my commission postings do usually get more attention on FA. But the only...
