The Worst Copyright Infringement Scandal to ever hit the DeviantArt community

On 08.25.11, in Exposed, General, In the News

If there is one thing that I’ve learned over the past six years of running Plagiarism Today, it’s that deviantArt is one of the most dedicated and united communities when it comes to fighting plagiarism. Few communities have shown the heart and the unity on this issue and none that I’ve seen have been as quick to rally to stop art theft.

Whether it’s the formation of anti-plagiarism groups, of which there are now several, dealing with uncooperative hosts, or tackling commercial infringement of the community’s work, deviantArt has always been there.

However, of all the cases I’ve tracked and even worked with the dA community, the most recent scandal, the Art4Love case, is perhaps the best example of it. deviantArt is a site that does not tolerate artistic plagiarism and is at war with the site’s former owner and artist, Chad Love Lieberman

The story, however, is a bizarre one and a case of an investigation that is still struggling to discover how deep the rabbit hole goes.

The Oatmeal VS FunnyJunk

On 05.29.11, in Exposed, General

A Typical and not so Funny Case of Online Copyright Infringement

UPDATE: A year after this post was published funnyjunk’s lawyer Charles Carreon threatened the Oatmeal

I’m a huge fan of the Oatmeal, an abrasive and hilarious comic-strip by Matthew Inman. In fact, he is probably my favorite person to follow on twitter or Facebook and brightens my timeline daily. Matthew is clearly too talented for his own good – producing Highly Original cartoons, and it is no surprise that, with very little deterrents, his work gets republished with no attribution on a plethora of dubious sites. One of which is called FunnyJunk and lives up to the latter part of the name.

Myows US Trademark Certificate

On 03.16.11, in General

We’ve received our US Trademark certificate today and thought we’d share it with you, along with a few thoughts.

Copyright protects the expression of your creativity, whereas Trademark protects a business’s identity or brand. Trademark ensures that consumers aren’t duped into buying from a competitor while believing they are buying from you or your clients. Trademarking should be part of any branding project. Trademarking is done on a geographical and sectorial basis – this means you will need to apply for trademark in every country where you wish to be covered. (more…)
