However, please feel free to note me for further information.

But what's that Cloud Avatar?

Some people tell me that there is a avatar resembles my original character, Cloud extvia.deviantart.com/art/Clou… , now on Second Life. img72.imageshack.us/img72/7234…

:thumb160511464:
THIS IS NOT ME, AND I'M NOT SELLING AVATARS ON SL, EITHER.
The people who made it was :iconthegeniusindigo: Vince thegeniusindigo.deviantart.com… work is pretty and I liked his work on Cloud's 3D model very much. He had already contacted me about the avatar. I didn't grant a permission to sell it, instead, I gave him permission to release this avatar for free under Creative Commons 3.0 BY-NC license. creativecommons.org/licenses/b… so everyone should be able to use it for free.

AGAIN, YOU CAN, AND, SHOULD BE ABLE TO USE THIS AVATAR FOR FREE.
If there is anyone selling this avatar, please contact the administrator of Second Life and me.

Thank you very much!

I sure hope those people will stop selling the avatar. It's not right.

Thank you for the explanation.

Okay, as a friend of ~theGeniusIndigo I'd like to verify the fact that In-World (Second Life) he has specifically mentioned to everyone inquiring about the avatar. It is not for sale, but will be released as a freebie instead, as mentioned in this journal.

It's just irritating to see so many people accusing him of theft. He asked for permission, permission was granted and he isn't making any money off of it, nor is he claiming the character as his own. If anything it should be a compliment that =extvia's work is so fabulous that he went out of his way to work on this modelling for... Oh, a couple of months now. I can recall seeing him start on this maybe back in.. November of '09? He's put a LOT of work into it, so just appreciate it for what it is, a giftart to =extvia and a way to share with his fans who are currently in-world. :)

I'm sure the people that are 'accusing' him are folks who saw him SELLING it in world and that may be why. It really doesn't matter how much effort he went through to make it if he's trying to profit off someone else's character/ work.


I mean, If it IS being distributed for free like it should be, why has noone posted the SURL where to pick it up...? Your friend included.

Also, from what I've read, Extiva said he was only allowed to give it away. The guy used it for some 'charity' event for 800L. That wasn't what he was given permission to do. So maybe THAT's why he's getting accused.

Yes, in that way people would have enough reason to suspect the whole thing to be profitable, no matter what the truth is. And I think it had constituted violation of the standard of Creative Commons, no matter how the creator's original intention may be.

As far as I can recall, tG has no shops in-world which is probably why there is no SLURL where it is available.

As for the 'charity' event, I'm not really sure what to say on that one. I wouldn't call it theft, but at the same time I do agree perhaps that should have been taken up with =extvia beforehand.

Thank you for your understanding.
Please tell your friend that next time when he is giving the avatar out, it should be release for free and for real. Just don't start arguments.

Trading the avatar for lindens at all was not part of the agreement and is technically 'selling' it. No matter the cause for doing such. There are plenty of places you can offer freebies at. A lot of the furry/non furry mall type areas have freebie areas. Most privately owned sims have instructions on who you talk to if you want to do stuff like that. It's hard to miss it. Most of the time there will be a 6 foot sign with that kind of info.

I'm sorry I had to put up with others' shit. I'm "balls-to-the-wall" as of now, and you, as a practically famous artist, have denounced my name in such a fashion that I receive grief from people about this on a daily basis.

Thanks for rubbing it in.

and to be totally fair, glitching the area object count pretty much never happens now unless the land is totally unprotected. usually you can't even create objects to do something like that.

stealing and reselling in SL is so easy that it's pretty much impossible to enforce anything regarding it. you basically end up needing to crash an area's server multiple times until the objects in question either dissappear due to glitching or your account is banned for crashing the area in the first place. you can pretty much steal the objects right off an avatar if you want.

I dont know much about legal terms and copy righting, i just know plagiarism and stealing is wrong. At least this person has contacted you, and asked about using the character. The person did a good job on it though...

I refuse to let people use my art under creative commons

Cause if they are selling it, how were you to know till now?

Nope if people want to use my art, they ahve to come to me and I will ahve to review and sign a contract involving money.

Well, depending on the piece

But I very much hate the Creative Commons act when it comes to my art work, call me selfish if you will, but I ahve been stolen from most of my life and have lost my charitable feelings when it comes to my art work.

Would be a bit hard to contact the "administrator" of Second Life (Linden Lab) unless a fair bit of money is at stake- which sadly isn't. :( I'm a more or less regular user of Second Life, and I don't think I've seen that design before, so there's a chance it might not be sold and instead part of some custom avatar commission or for personal use. Anyway, I'll keep an eye if I actually see it on sale in any major outlet (NorthStar, RFMC, FurNation, Xstreetsl, etc.) and if that's the case, notify the seller about your wishes. :meow:

I guess this is a common problem if your character was in SL without any permission. ><
