Everyone can rest with a little more ease, as I have writen a letter to the people coprophagus (our main cheating noscents on here) stole the images he posed here from. The original site was in Russian so I had to translate it, but the the below is a copy of the letter. Hopfully they will take legal action against coprophagus, for the thievery.
I'm contacting you today, because on Freelancer (a site for designers to look for work, or enter their work into contest to make money). A person with the username of "coprophagus" has stolen one of the images posted on your site, and was trying to pass it off as their own image to try and SELL in a contest.
There are so many sadist people in this world. They dont win that is fine. But they just cant see others win. By the way the website that you gave is a russian website which publishes pics and adds its logo. They are the true rippers. Not me. This photo was taken in front of me. But you guys suck.. Loosers. You just use google goggles and show that you are winners. But you are biggest loosers.
Well? It will be interesting to see if the CH does remove the winner or not. This is now something like 3 or 4 1st place images that have been removed for the exact same reason. Maybe it's just me, but this contest feels like it's being run by a 12 yr old boy.
shalin911 photo ripper.... please click om REPORT button, if they got 10 to 15 reports then her account will be deleted permanently and also the ip address will blocked along with MAC address. so REPORT REPORT REPORT REPORT.......
shalin911 got the images from http://allday.ru/index.php?newsid=387833
What a surprise!!! Yet another rip off. I knew I'd seen this image before http://hakanphotography.deviantart.com/art/We-Moved-In-Silence-2-50519061 . It's becoming comical, so many people steal on this site. If all you wanted was a naked woman from the net and some random scribble on the pic, surely all of us could've done that? Watch yourself CH, 'cos prob 90% of these entries are not theirs to sell.
Hello all. I made few artistic collage with parts of my pencil draws and photos used in my past work, for I am totally licensed to use them. Give me your opinion about submits #97 #99 #100 #101 and #102 . Have a nice day all of you.
I agree with crhino Most of these images are saved off the internet, and then modified slightly (some barely at all) And editing someone else's photography does NOT make it your own work.
kidoz image (the one with 5 stars), is a stolen picture of celeb Melissa Bebling he just cut off her head in the picture put a yellow box over her breast and colored her hair blue. THIS is the original photo here and I'm sure he did not take it as its licensed:
Don't hate because I caught you, trolling me is not going to get me mad or get me to fight with you nice try. As far as my designs, I don't think your qualified to say if I should leave designing or not, considering you don't know how to do anything my steal. Just my opinion though, I've reported you, and I am done talking with you, message me again and I will not answer.
Have a good day.
-Best of luck to the real designers here, I hope someone wins who actually put in the designing effort to win.
