Purple Husky

CooperFurry: Known for stealing people's art of purple huskies and their characters. He will not only post the original submissions, claim them as his own, and say the other person stole it from him, but he will buy commissions of these characters FOR HIMSELF.
This came to my attention when he attempted to purchase a fursuit commission of THIS character from me. Jijix came to me and even said he could pull up all the WIP PSD files to show that the character and artwork are his own.

AT THIS TIME- Cooper has removed everyone else's artwork, but don't be surprised if it shows back up sooner or later.

Commission done for Cooper:

Jijix's character: WARNING MATURE CONTENT- If you're NOT a member of FA or have the content filter on, you will not be able to view the images below. Sorry, because of their content, they can't be hosted on places like photobucket.


Cooper's Avatar is even a rip off!
Everything down to the tattoo on the hind leg and the rainbow band around the tail are ALL featured on Jijix's character. The colors, the hair, the markings, the accessories, you got it- it's all of it.

I contacted FA staff 3 months ago, no reply. NOW they replied to me and told me that Cooper is in the clear, he did NOT steal Jijix's character and that I was harassing him by reporting him. I'm not the only one either. The owners of the characters/artwork had also reported him several times only to get the same message that Cooper is A-OK.
HOW FUCKING STUPID CAN YOU GET?! It's clearly obvious that the character doesn't belong to him yet he doesn't seem to care.
Cooper DID make himself his own 'fursona' which he never uses. He'd much rather rip off everyone's purple husky.

Other people who were hit by Cooper:
Huskie666,Pkay and probably many others that I never caught the names of yet.

What the fuck FA is right, damn. Now we allow people to steal characters and when people report it you tell them basically fuck off and stop 'harassing' the user? (and no, no one harassed him to my knowledge- Hell I even explained it to him 50 times on MSN that he can't use other people's character and I said it in the most basic kind way as if you were talking to a 2 year old)

This thread is trollish and not unrelated to the post. I am screening it.

As sucky as character theft is, messaging someone '50 times on MSN' sounds a bit like harassment. And if it's Jijix's character getting thefted, why doesn't he handle this/post the notice/alert the mods?

It's a purple husky.

While it may very well be true he/she is stealing the character... I don't want to be mean, but honestly, the character is not that original to begin with.

This. Generic dog head is generic.

In fairness to the FA staff, the picture you posted is just a headshot of a generic brightly colored dog with piercings. It's kind of hard to say "character theft" based just on that.

Swearing undermines your credibility. If you're reporting theft, there's no need to throw tantrums.

OMG Check the temperature in hell, I agree with you
Jan. 31st, 2009 06:49 am (UTC)
if Jijix cares, why not let him deal with it? he's perfectly capable of speaking for himself. I know if it were me, I would not want someone harassing the thief over msn and kicking up a big fuss in my name.

Contacting someone repeatedly is harassment. Your actions are contradictory. And the designs are generic.

Did I cover all of it?

Characters technically cannot be stolen, largely because most furries haven't got them trademarked and really? Most sparkle dogs can't be trademarked because they're not original or distinctive enough to qualify for a trademark. This would be a case in which the source and the alleged theft are so generic that you're just being silly.

Also repeatedly messaging someone IS harassment. So yeah, this is none of your business since it doesn't involve your character anyway, you're in the wrong to boot and should stop harassing the person.

It's.... a purple husky....
Haven't we done this already?

Also if the creator doesn't care, then stop whining. And -NEVER- start attacking people for stupid things like this, especially if the character doesn't even belong to you. That just makes the situation worse.

He was also taking giftart that I received of my character Rupee from several different artists and recoloring them so that she was purple. I reported him (it was like 6 months ago or so) and they were removed, but yes he totally steals, the little creep.
