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.

PROOF:
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

EXPLAIN:
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.

Technically I think most rules regarding adoptables aren't enforceable (I believe most of what drives adoptables are an 'honor system').

Belated response; I believe you are correct, the way I understand it, a character design would have to be trademarked to be protected. Unless they are part of a larger project which is already legally protected.

That said, a lot of furries work on the honor system of adhering to a TOS, even if they're not strictly legally enforceable. But I daresay that telling someone what to do with their art, which might incorporate a purchased design, is seriously overstepping reasonable demands.
