Artwork Stealer?

2 02 2010

Some New deviant art user thinks that the Deviantart Website  is a flickr website or something … to be posting anything they desire. I´ve found my artworks stolen post on deviantart website and you guys should also take a look if yours aren´t there too.

I got my own deviantart website wich can be found here – and all those works that states my store were uploaded there juts claiming as their own.

 Report is the fastest way to remove those artwork stealers. (the person that is stealing the pictures)

Cloning Copybot Hitting The Grid

22 06 2008
A cloning copybot is hitting the grid which will duplicate an avatar.

Spotted on Onrez sim, kulton Short was selling a copybot which allows the user to duplicate an avatar’s clothes, skin, attachments and even their profiles!

kulton was asked for a demo of the product and he obliged with an alt account – Popper Washborne – who within three seconds had duplicated Charlotte Bartlett’s clothing and skin. Another couple of minutes, and her prim attachments would have been duplicated too.

Additionally, as can be seen above, her profile was also duplicated.

In-depth on what the Avatar Copy will duplicate:

Prim attachments: Yes
Skin: Yes
Shape: Yes
Groups with open enrollment: Yes
Interests: Yes
Picks: No
Classifieds: No
SL and RL profiles: Yes

You do not have to be near the avatar for this copybot to work, but on the same region. All the copied components (this includes the textures on the sim) will be copied with FULL permissions into their inventory.

Please pass this message on to other SL users and raise awareness of this.
