WHO: xhyra/ adurrgtables

WHAT: an egg adoptable that I also drew the larger version of.

WHEN: Was purchased from me several years. Today he posted it to resell it without permission.

Him selling it without permission: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/22519095/
My original submission: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/13741056/
Me asking him not to resell, which he promptly hid: http://sta.sh/0uv18sjgu24

This was an egg adoptable that he purchased from me a few years back. I have always had the full that my Adoptable's cannot be resold for money. Only given away as a gift to someone or back to me if you no longer feel a connection to it. The adoptable was put up for resale today without my consent. I politely asked him not to resell it and the comment was hidden by him.
Artist's beware has moved!
Do NOT repost your old bewares. They are being archived.

If he's not allowed to resell the design is he entitled to a refund from you? If so I would note him and tell him, otherwise I do not think it's right to tell someone they cannot resell a design they no longer want and as a design maker I would think you wouldn't want it just sitting around collecting dust. As I highly doubt they would just give it back to you just so you can re-sell it and their-selves be out of pocket.

In the end if you forbid him 'from selling it' he has stated it has one other piece so he could just use that as advertising for it and whoever he sells it to just won't be able to use the artwork because of your rules.

I think the beware is less about how people feel about reselling, and more the fact that this guy willingly violated the artist's TOS that was agreed to at the time of sale, and when that's pointed out they hide the comments.

I feel like people aren't getting my point of this post. And I think you explained it best.

And its not just violating the TOS. If he was polite about things, I'd be more lenient and willing to bend my rules (I have in the past). However, his attitude is cheering me off more than anything - the fact that he's just hiding my comments.

If he would have asked me beforehand and told me a valid reason why he wanted to sell it (needing money badly or what not), I may have said okay. Instead I feel like I'm being disrespected with him hiding comments and doing whatever he wants.

The 'other piece' is the original hatchling version of the egg adoptable.

I don't resell designs given back to me. I find a free home for them myself. Usually I gift them to any of my stream regulars that want them.
