Teen Titans Graphic Theft
|||||"Staplegunned" - Spill Canvas||]|
Over at TitansGo.Net, there's a graphics thread here that popped up a few weeks ago and I never looked at it until now, but there definitely appears to be some theft going on.
If you look at SladeRobin's sigs, it's clear that she's using MSPaint to make them. But upon closer inspection, many of her sigs, including this and this, are essentially just a bunch of icons cut and pasted together into a sigpic. A lot of the icons she compiled have textures, and since we know she's using MSPaint, which can't do textures, that's automatic proof that she did not make them.
I don't know who did make any of them, but she's using them all without any kind of credit. Another member asked her about this situation in her thread, and she said that she didn't make them (apparently found them on PhotoBucket), but still does not give credit to the original makers - and, as far as I know, isn't using them with permission from the artists.
She is also using an icon as a forum avatar, and said that she didn't make it, but isn't giving any credit in her signature.
Does anyone know the rightful owners of the icons she put in her sigpics? And the one she's using in her profile? 'Cause once we find them, she might be willing to ask those people permission for use of their work, and/or credit them for what she did use. Thanks in advance!
