I need to know your thoughts on this issue here.
To make long story short -> I did a couple of CARBOT INSPIRED signatures ( some were directly requested in the "graphic request" forum section and very specific ).
i also transformed some into d2jsp premade signatures hoping that someone would take them.
I recently started to be attacked both in my PMs and forum TOPICs by some guys saying that i don't have that carbot guy's written permission to copy his style and therefore i should not make any premade signatures that look similar to his work. Aren't most signatures here ( or most forums ) inspired from somewhere? Am i that guilty?
I stopped making carbot style signatures anyway, but i also keep seeing another thing.
Seen his signature today for example. I pm'ed that guy and here is what he said:
This guy is one of many examples of people browsing my premade signatures. photoshoping out the "your name here, please contact me for customization" and using as their own just like that.
if you try to aproach them, some become very aggressive and start threatening you or call you a liar.. " is not your work" , " this is carbot's work ", "this should be free" etc. etc.
Im aware that a bunch of people ripped my signatures or hired someone to erase out the "NAME@D2jsp" part. ill just stop posting premades, since is nothing i can do to prevent this..
On some of these signatures i spent more than 4 hours in making them. I know they are carbot inspired, YES! but work is work and should be apreciated if not rewarded
What you guys honestly think? thank you
