People like this make me sick, thats why its such gratification when they get their asses busted.

Oh, I totally agree.

Those that just post up a collection of other artists's work - without permission - I usually try and be MUCH more polite about it. I can certainly understand people's feelings that they didn't mean any harm, and just wanted to 'showcase' an artist's work on their behalf. So... in those cases, I explain that they really do need the artist's permission first. IF they say "yes", then there's no problem, if they say "no", then they're not doing the artist ANY favours by going against their wishes.

But... folk that edit pictures to remove signatures, and THEN claim the art as they're own. Well, they're just being malicious and dishonest, and the gloves come off and claws come out :)

Looks like Yaochi's found the site for you.

Remember, only the copyright holder, or an assigned agent, can raise a copyright violation complaint. So, you'll need to mail Monty about it.

Of course, there's nothing stopping you kicking up a stink on the plagiarist's bulletin board, or something :)

which is why i was looking for him^^

Yep. Yep. :)

To my shame, I'm interested in knowing where this plagiarist's site is, now, so I can point and laugh :)

Eh... perhaps not. People accuse me of creating too much drama already :)

hes using this stuff on his myspace account, but hes also on livejonural useing it as an icon...

i dont know what to think of as using it as an icon,
but on my space its the full picture

if i wasnt at skool id send you the link, but myspace is blocked here

im rather urgked about when i told him "thats bad, and you have no respect for artist" he told me to fuck off and my art sucks...
so any drama pointed at this ass, id like to see

but then again...he is just a silly little 21 year old child in my eyes, who should be tared...featered...hung..and used as a pinta(spellin?)

He also goes by the name of "Po-ju" for his more human-like artworks.

po-ju... ? That name sounds vaguely familiar...

Huh... well, I suppose their art is crap too if they're having to borrow someone else's.
Feb. 21st, 2006 10:54 pm (UTC)
thanks man

He uses Monty for furry artwork and ぽ~じゅ for just about everything else.

His current website is here: http://www.big.or.jp/~po-ju/Untitle.shtml

His "journal" is here:

His journal is where he announces what conventions he will be attending and what new material he has for sale.
