Hello,

well, If this user has evidence that the creations are his sorry but you have to leave the skin.
But if the creations are yours you can stay calm! (s)he can't do anything Mr. Green

if you take a theme from hitskin, you're able to modify it, but you wont be allowed to resubmit it to hitskin. You can't remove the copyright either unless you change all of it.

Well it looks like it was originally my skin with some minor tweaks and they resubmitted it to hitskins as their own and copyrighted it claiming they made the entire skin.

My Skin - http://en.hitskin.com/search-a-skin/animegalaxy-185005.htm

Their Skin - http://en.hitskin.com/search-a-skin/naruto-crisis-20-skin-1-185517.htm

Both even have the messed up portal button I accidentally messed up on. Now the only difference to me is the main background, the banner, the icons for the forum, the row1 hover image, and the occupancy code was lightened. I took time making and getting the images just right for the rows to make them look proper for another site and then have someone else come in and claim the skin with a copyright.

Now i was nice and talked to the webmaster their and gave him the proper portal image, but Katt Rin Uchiha an Administrator there threatened to ban me if i said this was original developed from my work. Now I am afraid since she copyrighted the skin claiming she made all of it that the site i originally made it for will loose it.

I just want to know if her copyright can be taken down for the skin as well as her skin since it does appear it was originally my skin. As well as the fact my skin was submitted about a month before theirs.

I am Psychosis from the site you say stole your skin, I am also a friend with most of the staff, I must deeply apologize for this, none of us knew it was stolen, we simply asked Katt Rin Uchiha to make one, I hope you dont blame us.

Furthermore, Id like to personally say Im sorry, even though Im not staff there, I hope this doesnt damage your veiw on us, but we understand.

To be perfectly honest I was wondering how she managed to get a skin so fast, and one so good at that. I cant say for sure, but I have a 99% feeling that she will be removed and banned from the forum for this.

I hope this resolves this incident between us.

I do understand that we have said sorry twice already, but being the Webmaster of Naruto Crisis, i feel like an idiot for letting 'Katt Rin Uchiha' steal your skin and claim it as her own, stapling the Name of 'Naruto Crisis' On it and creting a copyright saying that it was her skin makes it even worse. I feel like a total idiot as i said. Anyway 'Katt Rin Uchiha' has been IP banned from the site, and the copy right has been removed as well as the skin, sadly. I'd like to speak to you though on my site. Please and Thanks.

I am glad that has been handled, but i would still like the Hitskin made by Katt Rin Uchiha taken of as this person is still claiming the skin on hitskins by having it up.

I would like to say though that I appreciate the efforts by Naruto Crisis to fix the issue and I am currently helping them with their layout.
