I like dubstep >:I

If you guys are sick of techno and such, I recomend Mike the Microphone and ibringdalulz and the rappers of mlp. They're good, esp Mike.
Those guys are pretty good, at least one of them put out a rap song I don't hate (I don't like rap either). I can respect their talents, even if I don't care for most of their music.

Ugh, the techno genre gets on my nerves, cause it's so all over the place; people need more diverse tastes.
actually, what most people refer to as "techno" is in reality hard trance, trance, UK hardcore, house, or something similar. i haven't heard a single techno song from all of the MLP fan music.

Holy shit. My little art piece has gotten 110+ fav's over the course of a single day. I haven't even submitted it to EQD's Drawfriend yet. Publicity is best pony.

Is Ponibooru normally this slow?
I've tried that link a few times, then tried to get to the main page. Nothing.

Yeah, it's slow. It loaded quick for me, but more often than not ponibooru takes nearly half a minute to load anything.

Also, I fixed the mistletoe part of the image so that it is now actual mistletoe, instead of holly, which I mistakenly drew at first (at my DA account; I didn't put it on ponibooru, so I dunno wtf to do there). Feels kinda embarrassing, really.

^The singing was a pony version of a song and I didn't even realize it until he said "everypony" that's how good it is.

I wish they would give further back story to the villains in the series, cause I'd like to see how discord became like he was or how the other such.

Coloured illustration. I posted it halfway down last page. I'm just a little surprised at the attention it has been getting over at DA.

Sweet mother of god.

Just goes to show that the one thing that will get you more faves than furry porn is MLP art. And the thing that will give you more faves than MLP art is MLP shipping/porn.

I seriously doubt MLP porn is a high roller. The shipping is passable and can be really cute though.

Ah, porn. The most controversial part of any fandom.

DA isn't a porn site, and none of that is porn. Yeah i could see it getting pretty sketchy, but there is a difference. Mature shipping does seem popular, and it can get a bit unnerving, but it's still a big step from assuming they're all horse porn fiends.

I would get the impression that MLP porn = attraction to horses, and MLP mature shipping = attraction to the characters themselves. I think the latter is the likely case, and it isn't really so abnormal. I haven't looked, but I've never even heard of any undeniably full-fledged MLP porn being popular at all.

Stop. Look. Listen, how long have you been lurking this thread?

I like the discordxcelestia shipping cause we all know discord is crazy and I doubt when he was born he was. 99% of relationships in media are sunshine and rainbows and dude gets the girl and everybody holds hands and sings across the world; I like it cause that's not how real life works and it's good to see a story give a realistic representation of relationships or have a sad ending. The discordxcelestia are most of the time have a sad ending cause we know how he eventually ends up and dude doesn't get the girl.

Not long... got here because I tried talking logic with rule 85 applying bronies and the best that they could do was threats and blocking :p
(the logic being that you can't take a character without the permission of the artist)
I was curious to see if it was better here...​

Oh alright then, I was thinking you were lurking since last time we saw you.
Technically speaking though you trademark a character or franchise, not copyright.
MLP is trademark and so are the characters, the copyright for the fan artwork lies with the artist who draws it.
For example if I stole your fursona you couldn't do shit cause it's not trademarked, which costs thousands of dollars, and you couldn't do anything. Whereas the characters of mlp are trademarked, however fanart or such is permitted and fair use is permitted. For example mentioning mlp or showing a few second clip on a show is permitted, however if you take the show and put it on a dvd and sell it that's not fair use. Fair use is kinda sketchy though, cause it's up to the individual circumstances.

It also depends on whether or not the artwork has been filed for copyright, while all art is copyrighted as soon as it's made it's harder to make your case if you don't file for it. For example IF I stole your art and sold it and you didn't file and then sued me I could just go, "whoops I thought it was open source, I'll stop" and your case just got shot to hell and I get away with it. If something doesn't have a copyright mark or proof of copyright I could just go, "whoops I thought it was open source, I'll stop" is a bulletproof defense.

Etc, etc you get the point.

What is Copyright Infringement?
To simplify this question, copyright infringement occurs when you do certain things with a creative work which someone else produced without first getting the proper permission.
Some examples of copyright infringement (this is only a partial listing) can include:
  • Placing a photograph or creative work online without proper permission.
  • Using a creative work commercially.
  • Adapting a creative work of one medium to another, such as making a book into a movie or a photograph into a painting.
  • Modifying or editing a creative work without proper permission.
How Can I Avoid Infringing on Someone's Copyright?
The best way to avoid infringing on the rights of another creative person is to use your skill, talent and imagination to create your own completely original work. When we use the word 'original' we don't mean that you must come up with an idea which hasn't been used before, when used in copyright matters "original"means that you created your work without referencing or deliberately copying anyone else's work during the process.
Ensure that all parts of your work, both visual and audio, are your own original creations. If you have used materials which are owned by other people or companies make certain that you have obtained proper permission or licensing for the use before you place your work online.


What Sort of Things are Copyrighted?
The easy answer to this question is that just about any creative work you might find should be considered to be copyrighted by default.
A work is not required to have a copyright statement printed on it or near it in order to be considered copyrighted so do not assume that the work is unprotected simply because you cannot see a notice written anywhere.
Also do not confuse the fact that a work is publicly available with the idea that it is public domain or free for use. Being easy to find on the internet does not affect a work's copyrighted status.

D.a copyright rules are there... :p

^Zanian that's what I just said, I clarified the ambiguity of copyright laws and explained loopholes and how to wiggle your way of preventing yourself from going to prison; as well as how to get away with it and further explained on top of what is on the books.

Happy Hearthswarming Eve, everypony. Why hasn't this been said yet?

And about the porn... I've had this idea for a while now but it's weird.

What if we do a whole 100+ participant orgy where each FAFer draws a pony?

Obviously I'm pulling a :V but I like to toy with the idea.
