Default Re: Don't steal ideas for Avvies and Siggy Shops!

Well, at the shop I co-own, I may use the same sites as other people, but that's not the same as stealing their graphic ideas. It just happens to be that we use the same sites! I don't have any professional programs either, so I can't help it if I have the same graphics in my shop as other people do! Right?!? By the way, the two people who also co-own the shop both use the
same site for at least one of their things, and I use it too! xD
But I do agree: people shouldn't steal graphics that someone else made, especially if the other person used professional programs! Thanks for bringing this topic up!

Well I have an example:
PF has a default rainbow text spectrum built in. Catherine's great shop uses this spectrum. Just because another shop does, it doesn't mean that they are copying. If someone used that, it would not mean that they are copying you. In fact, great minds think a like.

xD Why're you two talking about my shop? I'd rather not use examples, if you don't mind. Kinda uncomfortable. And if I reply it feels like I'm talking about myself ... really weird. xD

We have to learn to share with each other. You can't just say everything's 'mine, mine, mine' because really, where would that get you? You should be willing to let other people discover your ideas and make something of their own out of it. And how could you prove that the person stole your idea? EVERYTHING has a source, so how do you know that they didn't look it up on a website and learned to make it themselves? You don't.

I've been appreciative to some specific people for helping me improve my shop and telling me how to make some specific graphics, but that's because they WANTED to help me and they were more than happy to! Even when I didn't ask, she helped me learn to make things. We should all be like that.

I do agree because you always want to have that feeling that you created it and it's all yours, but again, other people would want to share that idea, and I think it would be pretty selfish to not tell someone where to get something or how to make it.

Hmm .... well, I think the point of this thread was copying thread ideas, not the graphix themself. Every good shop is built w/ a basis, hopefully an original one - but no one "owns" a right over the sites they actually use, unless they're the actual creators of the site - but like shops themselves, copying it and naming it your own, is completely different from using the same graphix maker as someone else. But I totally get where you're coming from, I really do. Just my honest opinion. =]

Yeah ... I mean like, if someone else puts like "Rules" in their shop, does it mean they copied someone else? xD Absolutely not, because ... pretty much every shop has that now. It's a basic thing. Copying someone else's rules word for word though ... that might be a different story.

I agree and disagree. I agree because if they made the picture from scratch and someone toke and called it there own, that's what I would call stealing. If they made it on a web site (like glitterfly) and someone took it I wouldn't call that stealing because anyone can use sites to make pictures.

Default Re: Don't steal ideas for Avvies and Siggy Shops!

My point exactly!

I've seen this happen a lot and I just think it's rude. If your idea was homemade, people shouldn't copy it without their permission- You're supposed to be original!
But, on the other hand, if lots of people use the same programs and websites as you, I wouldn't say that's stealing because others may know how to make it, also.

Default Re: Don't steal ideas for Avvies and Siggy Shops!

Arod, I think that is different.
Like but people litterally steal the whole idea itself, and like it takes time making, not just a one click oh its done. I think that is a little diferent...

But if I used the same concepts as her, as I stated, including most of the same fonts, the signature flower, and rainbow, that would practically be copying! If somebody was going to go along the same lines of the graphic's consept or idea they should at least give credit to them. In my case I would say "Inspired by *insert user's name here*". But I'd try to be the least bit original if a situation like that were ever to come up for me.
