Poses we're not worried about. In plain English: we don't care if the poses are similar. Why? Well, the body can only move in so many ways and eventually you're going to have MASSIVE amounts of similarties in images.Wolfblade said:Admin discretion.
If someone comes forward with something that can be overlaid and looks to be a trace, they're more likely to be listened to.
Complaints of "Pose theft," when not an obvious (again, admin discretion) trace or direct eyeball referencing (and even that one was still kinda under discussion last time I checked), won't be listened to, and haven't been nearly as common as people seem to believe they will be.
Now, when it comes to complaints of art theft...
We always overlay and compare the original image with the one being claimed counterfeit. If they're similar, eh well, that's just how it goes. If they're identical down to lines, patterns and it's plainly obvious most if not all of the image was traced, well, we've got a problem.
And that's where we step in and start to review. No one admin has any say in all of this. In situations like this, we usually all attempt to work together and try to come to a unanimous decision.
But, well, let's just say we've got more than a few graphics experts on staff, some with degrees and industry experience. =) We don't make these decisions lightly.
