What?

Wed May 30, 2012, 11:48 AM


Guys, I can't believe it :wow: you must see this >> blog.mageia.org/en/2012/05/22/…
Take a look to the wallpaper in that screenshot. Then read here ostatic.com/blog/mageia-2-defa… "Submitted by Luiz Fernando, the winning image is a lovely deep blue base with wisps of royal blue cutting across the primary focal lines." What...  Luiz Fernando?
Ok, now, the surprise! here is my wallpaper and fav.me/d393229 my license. He didn't ask my permission, or anything. And he is credited as the original designer of the wallpaper. The thing is, I didn't know about this until today.

Is it that hard to ask permission? :no: What a bad copy!

I am so glad that TeaAge found this thread before it got out of hand, and that with your cooperation a quick and hopefully beneficial solution was reached.

Similarly, I can only offer my apologies about this, and commend you for your understanding and allowing Mageia to use your work.

It’s unfortunate but does happen. Way back, I uploaded a wallpaper to a site but it didn’t make moderation so I uploaded it to other sites. About two years after and much to my surprise, I saw it had gotten through moderation on the original site but under a different user name and my copyright had been smudged out etc. I got it removed immediately but probably only because I could prove it was mine due to the fact I had uploaded it to the other sites!
I suppose the very least you can do is try and get it removed from the site you found it on.
If it’s any consolation it probably means you did a good one! :thumbsup:
Try and google tineye. It finds duplicates elsewhere on the web!

That's because people people download my wallpapers, and then reupload them to various wallpaper hosting sites without reading or understanding the license.
But it`s ok, I have solved the problem. Thanks for commenting mate ;)

So, for a bad news, that's a bad news :-(

I am a member of the Mageia project and we just got aware of this situation. And we are pretty disappointed and sorry for this. We're waiting for the person that provided our background to give us his side of the story and explain...

Your CC-By-NC-ND licensed work should not have made it unto our package, for several obvious reasons; and that will make us change the way we source community artwork contributions in the future as well. :-/

Could we get in touch by email so we can see the options? (me: rda at mageia dot org or council at ml.mageia.org). Thanks.

You should contact Mageia team. It is totally braking the CC license you chose for your artwork and a entire GNU/Linux distro is using a stolen artwork as its default wallpaper. If you don't do anything, people like "Luiz Fernando" will still stealing artwork from your and others.

Simple thing. Call your lawyer, he shall write the publisher and order to correct this.
I don't handle those "art steal things" no more on my own. Get a lawyer and it all gets so easy^^ Maybe your insurance handles the costs too^^
