Okay, I decided to post it in the Everyday Life section because this does concern with life everyday, and so I placed it in here.

Question - If you were to put yourself in somebody's shoes - let's say this awesome waller or game designer who made this fantastic wall / program and then as you privately publish it online, your work immediately gets ripped - hours or even minutes after being sent through the Internet by some anonymous hacker / user.

Now that you know the situation.

How would you feel if you went on a site and found out that your stuff you ever worked so hard on was on there, ready to be downloaded by the mass public? What would you do? Tell me your thoughts. I was just interested indeed.

I would be extremely disappointed, especially if my work isn't authenticated. First off, I think it would be wise to authenticate your work so this way the other people would have to give me credit. If I find out my work is used in any way without my credit, I will get some money out of it.

If it was here on Minitokyo, I wouldn't feel that bad at all because I know that the moderators would sort it out for me and in doing so, it would create morepublicity for my wall ^^ .
I'd be slightly more annoyed if it was somewhere else, but really, it doesn't bother me. Probably because I don't wall.

if it was my hard work, i'd just want to kill the ripper, slowly and painfully (or take the content posted elsewhere down >_>).

bwahahaha.... Tatsuya-san hontou wa yasashii desu.. XD

about the publicity.... mmmm I must agree that being ripped means more publicity, as long as my signature on that wall still intact... (If there's anyone erasing it or altering it, then, I'll rip his lungs out to express my gratitude :) )

i used to be really pissed off knowing that my walls were ripped and all, but nowadays I think I will just let it happen, since it's the nature of humans and the inevitable dark side of the internet...

one thing I want to point out to all the rippers out there :
"Crediting ain't gonna took hours or years of your life, just a few minutes to ask for permission or stuff.... don't be such a pathetic loser, and do have a common sense for being a civilised being. Thank you. :) "

p.s.
am I being polite enough? ^_^'

*nods* kai kai,so agree with you ^^,and if somebody rip my work,first of all xD,he(she) is crazy,cause you can find better work than mine here,but if he(she) delete my signature,i have to pull out BanYa (My Katana) and "play" around

I would be extremeley angry if they had not seeked permission first and had not given credit where due.
Luckily my work sucks, so there's no chance of that happening to me, but I'm sure if this sort of work stealing carried on, (like everytime a picture was posted), legal cases could be brought about...especially if you put copyrights on your work (Copyrights don't cost anything for artwork and similar stuff).

I would be very upset and angry too. It happens a lot in real life, people are ready to take credit for others' works, and the bad thing is they will be ready to do that again whenever they have chance. How sad!!! :(

First, I'd be very upset because they took it without my acknowledgement.
Secondly, I'd check things out to see if they gave any credits.
If they did give credit, then I wouldn't be upset, because as Korg' said-"more publicity". :nya: Which is a very good thing! ^_^
If they did not give credits,--or if they altered it in any way--however, I probably would report them to their host, or at least speak with them about removing my work.

well, i don't wall, so i don't know about that, but if it were for my original drawings (and yes i did say original drawings, that is those whose character i invented) i'd probably be pissed... maybe not to the point of becoming murderous like some people up there though ^^

in the case of fanart, i don't know, coz' technically i rip them myself from an author, i just redo them my own way just for the pleasure of redoing the same lines the author drew... so i guess i wouldn't exactly mind... notice, i'd still prefer being asked and given credit for those as well, but whatever, it's not the end of the world ^^

think thats a oxymoron <g>

I would be
a) Happy, somebody actually liked my work, yay free PR
b) I would rip out his skull and beat him to death with it.

Since "b" is wishful thinking, I would resort to public humiliation, flames and other verbal abuse. maybe contact his ISP/Host later.

I agreed with korg =) ...well that ripping lungs and things...>.>....forget it >.>
well....I could be mad....but I think you can't blame it.....you placed your work on internet and you want to let people see......well...if someone just ripped it and didn't put the credits and things...bad luck.......but.....you work will be spread out even more.....even if they dun know that you've made it.......so...it's really about how you will look against a event like this.....

Well, since i am a waller and a mediocre one at that, i really dont fear my walls being ripped. But if some goon does, i would be pissed. If i was a programer, and saw that my program was being ripped by a gazillion users, i would cry with happiness knowing that i am loved that much. really, i would!!

Hmm... lets see , wouldn't u feel proud Xd , since that can mean that your wall worth ripping for XD>

As long as all the things stay in place signatues etc, lik Korgie said, i think it should be fine
Just hoping thopse rippers give u some credits -_- no just rip and claiming it their own

Anyway, all this rippers issues happened everyday, in anytypes of things, and I think the creator or the owner should deal with it somehow like signature etc.
Anyway that just my opinion.,

If I notice that someone is ripping me, I'll do what I did the first time I found out someone was ripping me:
I looked him up and I managed to even know where he live and then I mailed him to please stop the ripping or I would report him because It's a crime to steal art. =P

May the foes be with you.
