And I never allow it, you've release it even before asking...

I'm disgusted with the lack of respect in deviantArt, everything is not for free !...

I already said a thousand times that everybody can do whatever he wants, just don't use my resources and don't use the name of my work... That's ALL I'm asking...

I don't own the shape, I don't own any colors or effects. But I've chose a name sufficiently original not to see it used by others.

And then you use a Creative Commons, so by this, you allow others to use my name, which is copyrighted at first. It's like ripping a copyrighted CD and put it for free saying that everyone can redistribute it however he wants. You can't change a copyright, it's the same in the other way.

Please, just make a second version of this orb. Open Photoshop or another picture software, do a rounded square shape, add all the effects you want, add the Windows logo, and choose your own name. That's all.

Anyway, I wish to thank you for at least sending me a message, this prove your honesty. Most just copy my work and never ask, and never reply.
I reply like that because you can't imagine all the copies and use of the kARÉ name I've seen on deviantArt. This series as ended more being a weight than something I like...


The thing I truly don't understand is that the shape of the kARÉ series is a very well known shape, the shape of the iPhone icons. But still, for some reasons people prefer uses my name than saying iPhone-like. But my icons and start orbs, have always been told iPhone-like... Because that's my inspiration, but they still have a different name ! Even if after all, it's only a shape !...

So I'm totally not angry at all after you, its only the addition of everything I've received on dA.
For your future works, when you see someone that uses a Copyright and not a Creative Commons, simply don't use their work. I don't know why some still don't understand that.


Another thing. I started the kARÉ series because I wanted to make the icons I needed for me. And as they were original, I found them a name and release them on dA just to share my work. That's all I was willing to do at first.
Now I don't use them anymore, I've went back to the great Token black series. And not every Token icon I wanted were made by the author, so I made them myself. But, I haven't released any of them, because it's a very specific style, and I respect that and the author.
If I need something that mimic an original creation, I do it myself and only for myself, because that's how a copyright works.

I hope you'll understand.

Yes I do :) I truly know when you send the note right after sending it here that you never meant to offense or disrespect anyone. I see that, sincerely. And that's why I've sent this message, because I could just have reported it, making it deleted, I would be in my rights, but then that would not have respected you.

But I'd still prefer you have asked before releasing it like that...

I write this sort of message because I know people have problems with copyrights on deviantArt. It's a fantastic community where everyone shares a lot of personal and great things, and we all start to think that we can release anything whenever we want. But it's not always the case.

I wish to take as an example the fact that many works looks the same on deviantArt. You can look at Photography, Customization, Poems, etc... You'll always see different works that looks very similar, and they're not necessarily copies :) It's just that we share common tastes, and that, in the end, we're all the same humans living in the same world :)
And we all get inspired by others and by their works, that's not something to reject.

But I always prefer sending such a strong message, because you may know that there is always some people nearly deaf, who refused to listen to you, thinking they can do anything as they want. And we see it on dA everyday. Sometimes we even get insulted by some who think they have the right to steal others ^^

So please don't delete your work. Just change the name, and change some details uses from my recourses. You've proven with the title that you've got all the knowledge necessary to make a good start orb on your own. :)

Thanks man. I really appreciate your understanding in this. Next time, I'll ask before submitting something, because the last thing I want is to make someone angry.
