Copyright Infringement

Post by UltimateShinobi on January 11th 2011, 8:18 am

I'm sure this is an issue you guys handle somewhere but I cannot find the appropriate place for it. I'm going to keep it short, obviously a site has copied material from not only my site, but a few other sites.

Now two of the sites stolen from, being my site Ultimate Shinobi 2.0 and another one known as [url=narutor.ingoo.us]Naruto Revolution[/url] are two sites you could call major contributers for Forum Motion. I'm not sure if Revolution still has their domain but we do, and these were domains given by you because of our forums activity, which is evidence that you guys support our sites I suppose. I'm wondering how far that support extends regarding situations such as this. I usually handle these situations myself but there is no convincing them to remove the stolen material which saddens me because the guy was somewhat of a friend of mine. I created a topic in their Feedback section saying they should remove everything that isn't there's before I reported them and I was account banned. Creating a section account reading his insulting response, I retaliated again, still in a civilized manor warning them that it is their last chance; only to be IP banned minutes later. Of course I'm not fool and anybody who knows who to mask their IP could keep going back and harassing them, but progress won't be made unless I created a more aggressive game plan. I don't want to result to this and I wish for this situation to be handled by the hosts, which is you guys.

The Forum that is stealing from other sites can be found [url=narutovirtue.forumotion.com]Here![/url]

I hope that you guys handle this accordingly as I'm assuming you will.

~Regards; Adam of Ultimate Shinobi 2.0

I'm assuming the Who's Online image is the copyright material called to question. Am I correct?

The icons were former property of a member of U.S too who had allowed us to use them but that is a minor issue, almost every rule, guide, template and system has been taken from another site. Blatent copyright, you must look the appearance, though you are correct.

The banner and icons (including yours) may be valid infringments and can be contested thru legal counsel, but as far as the theme's construct goes, its primarily hitskin-based and within legal limits since hitskin themes are free for anyone to use. I can help you submit a formal complaint threatening legal action if you'd like, but I'll need time to type it up. Smile

As I stated, the theme is not my problem; it is everything else that has been stolen not only from my site but many others.

Yes, I understand. That was merely FYI, and if you wish to take legal action, you'll need to look at from angle as a lawyer would. It's a CYA concept. Razz As far as my offer goes, take it or leave it.

Bump, do no actual staff members have the authority to handle this? Seriously?

Gidday mate ;P
I hope I can help you out with this one.

1st - You could've simply given the links to the sites because i was forced to copy the url and paste it manually than to simply click it and get redirected.

2nd - So , after reading what you said over there. Here's something which I think might be helpful. You claim that your site , which's this http://www.ultimateshinobi.com/forum is been copied by the another forum that is this http://narutovirtue.forumotion.com/ and not just by your forum , but by some other forums.

Here's what you can do , http://www.forumotion.com/en/litigation/
All you need is a proof , of everything copied by them and the orignal work , maybe.
And as far as I know , you're done Wink

I'm not one of the officials , but I hope it was helpful. Smile

It still upsets me that there was no support from the staff, I thought the idea of this forum was help, support and assistance. :/

Fred posted what needed to be posted, staff aren't necessarily maids for peoples forums, sure they help personally every now and then but they aren't going to do everything. The litigations tool was made for a reason, if they are still copying your images illegally then use the litigations tool.
