I discovered two of my works there, so I posted a notice on facebook and in a group on there, so the word is getting around, we all need to report her. The terms and conditions on ipernity says, only authors original works allowed. She had the cheek to explain how she wanted a drab atmosphere on one piece, like she created it.
I have sent a ticket reporting this person, as have many other people, so hopefully she may get thrown out.
Well done Caleidoscope, that's a great idea. I noticed her friend T.a.o.n. read your post, that will be interesting.
Upset the fractal community, you get piles of shit in return!
I await their decision with anticipation smiley

I actually did it a little differently.

Since I couldn't post in their comment section I sent my message directly to our thief and informed her that I reported her posts as illegal and requested of her directly that she remove all stolen content from our site, and any other sites she stole from, promptly!  hitting butt

I'll post if I get any reply either from the staff there or from the criminal.

I was a little pissed off to find 10 of my Artworks on the thieving, plagiarist, Zelda Kurowski's Ipernity photostream.

How she has the audacity to claim the artworks as her own is beyond me!

I signed up to Ipernity, and posted the 10 stolen works on my Ipernity photostream, adding the following description...

"This is one of my original artworks. It was created using Mandlebuld3D software.

 This art work was stolen from the Fractal Forum website by ipernity user Zelda Kurowski, and published on Impernity. An act of theft!

 Not only did she steal my artwork, she also had the audacity to pass it off as her own work. An act of plagiarism!

 She then lied to people who commented on the art work. An act of deception!

 If you feel that theft, plagiarism and deception are unacceptable, then please let Zelda know!
www.ipernity.com/doc/643659

 Many thanks."

I then added all Zelda Kurowski's Ipernity contacts to my Ipernity contacts, hopefully they're looking!!!!

Thought I might send Zelda Kurowski an ipernity email.......

"It has come my attention, and that of the global fractal art community, that you have stolen fractal artworks, and published them on the Ipernity website, without permission or accreditation of the talented artists. An act of theft.

You then have the audacity to pass these artworks off as your own work. An act of plagiarism.

You then lie to the ipernity community commenting about the artworks. An act of deception.

The fractal art community does not take kindly to theft, plagiarism and deception.

You have 10 of my copyrighted artworks published on your stream. I will be taking legal action against the infringement of copyright.

Let the shit rain down!!"

I would encourage the fractal community, also send Zelda a special message!

I hope everybody is both messaging our thief as well as reporting their images as illegal posts in violation of both copyright laws as well as the Digital Millennium Copyright Act!!

I have, so far, received no replies to either my message to the crook or my reporting of an illegal post.

I didn't expect the thief to reply - obviously they don't care what we have to say or what we (or anybody else) thinks!  But I am surprised the site itself has not at least replied.

I haven't posted my image and added those who commented on it, but it's a great idea and one I shall pursue if no action is taken by the site by tomorrow morning   police cop police

I know there is a time and a place for everything, and this certainly is the time and place for it, but please keep the profanity to a minimum.

I have no problem with it, but there may be children on this site and we like to set a good example of how adults deal with adversity.  Using profanity is exactly what I wanted to do, but on here on Fractal Forums we try to show as much restraint as possible since we encourage teachers to send their younger minds here and many teachers could see that and choose not to recommend us.  Nobody's posts will be edited or anything, but if something isn't said I can see it getting out of hand.  Thanks for understanding   afro

Absolutely no worries!

As I said, a time and place for everything.

If ever profanity was called for - this is that time and place.

I just had to say something since I am a moderator here and don't want to be seen as encouraging such things.  I was not singling you out by quoting you  (others used profanity too, and that was directed at everyone)  (even those who may just be thinking about using it but have not yet done so!) - I quoted you to comment on the rest of your post   afro

A well thought out argument and I used much of it when I posted my own pirated image on ipernity just now.

You could say I plagiarized your post and I should be forced to remove it   wink

@ Detective Kleinhuis.  Yes that is my elaborate conspiracy theory too, every user at the site is another Zelda pseudonym.

@ Sockratease. Very true, I have directed young people to this site. I am also concerned about the high level of alcohol being consumed in this post by forum members, being a bad example for young people.LOL

user named ".t.a.o.n." from http://www.ipernity.com states very clearly on his home page ...
"please don't use any images from this stream on websites, blogs or other media without my explicit permission. ę all rights reserved thank you !"
but the urls and feel of the site seem a bit off, compare the urls from any other site to the ones found in/on ipernity.com

I think it's a trap!

The replies I got on the site are all kind an even angry at Zelda and stating that they have removed her etc.  The only one that is defending her and even in a slightly angry manner towards me is one called Freedom:
http://www.ipernity.com/mail/view/inbox/9755668?t=87825&c=1&s=mail
It would not be a suprise if this is Zelda too.

To think that this site and all the members are Zelda?  Ik can hardly believe that, for that would be an enormous amount of work and time. To comment on
each other,  all the time making different pages etc... ?    In that case he would be a very sick individual that needs to be hospitalized to get psychic help and lots of medicine I presume.  Well if he is indeed Ipernity himself  than he is getting a lot of new members and pictures from us ; ) 

Have a good day you all.
Caleidoscope.

Could everybody that has a site now on Ipernity put this here so we can all join together?

You are right and I'm ashamed that I let my unquenchable thirst get the best of me  Order in the court !!   I will bring it back to a minimum, I promise  wink
