Ok, this journal is more of a rant. The deviation I am going to link might not be available once it's removed because i reported it.
I am so sick of people ripping other people's work. As a designer I find it frustrating as hell. ALL of my work is free to use and mod. However that doesn't mean you can just download a wallpaper and release it as your own without credit. Of course I wouldn't really care if they at least ASKED.
Here's the example I reported ---> [link]
Here's my friend Dominic Kamp's original photo (which is copyrighted) ---> [link]
Which as you can see is the SAME photo. He packaged it, made a preview and released it. Even asking for "faves" and "likes". Another person I bitched out used the BS excuse that; "I'm just sharing it". Now I realize they're probably 13 or whatever but I get so frustrated just because someone finds a high quality pic somewhere on the internet they think it's free to use and release. Especially when it's from a WELL KNOWN photographer and they're releasing it on a VERY popular designer website. FAIL in of itself. All I'm asking or getting to I guess is just please look for each other. I think I do a pretty good job and you better believe if I see any of my designer friend'd work being released like that I'll be going Judge Judy on their ass as well.
Thanks for reading.
Great success! [link]
