Apparently I've been ripped off, jackass ahoy?

Post by Conan the SSJ » Thu Nov 13, 2008 11:08 pm

Evidently an AMV I made over two years ago, "Gohan and Videl: It's About Life/Time", has been jipped by some jerk at YouTube. Guess this shouldn't be surprising, though I would like it if some fellow AMV makers, friends, and those whom know me in some capacity around here know about this and be aware of people like this. Something similar to this happened ages ago when a Budokai 3 review of mine on gamefaqs.com was ripped off by some other twerp, now I find this has happened, really ticks me off more than I wish it would.

Even though this AMV was pretty so-so in quality, I put genuine effort in it and it meant a lot to me when I made it at the time, still does. Hopefully you guys understand why I'm so upset and here's also hoping Mike doesn't lock this thread, if anything I just wanna make a clear example of how these things can happen and stay as such for a long while (a year and a half in my case) before you figure it out. Here's my original AMV:

My AMV

This jerk's version.

This shit happens and yes it does suck but no amount of harassment will make this guy take it off. I do have sort of an issue with you trying to turn Daizex into your personal army though. Not to sound harsh but this thread gives off the whole "SPAM THIS GUY FOR ME UNTIL HE TAKES OFF MY VIDEO!" feel.

I'm not telling you guys to comment. All I pointed out was that I wanted to bring this up as an example of this type of crap that goes on. How's "feel free to comment" attempting to rise an army of spammers?

So yeah, I think you misinterpreted the whole point of this.

Oh God. I hate fucktards like these, pathetic. Stealing AMV's and passing it off as their own; that's just pitiful. :evil:

I share your loss Conan.

No, that's eBaums.
Most thieves get a bunch of butthurt following their theft, but this is a DBZ AMV, it's not exactly a Dave Kelly comic or an amazing flash animation.

Yes yes, lets embarrass the furry.

From what I've seen in the manga volumes, Toriyama has a fursona...

No thank you, big men in Disney land costumes doesn't really make me want to embrace that fandom.

Embarass, he said. :p
back on topic: that sucked man.
[quote="Brakus"]For all the flack that FUNimation gets on this forum for their quote about DBZ, there's some modicum of truth to it: a 9-year-old is born every day. Or in some cases, "reborn". DBZ may be a kids' show, but it's been so close to so many hearts all over Japan, America, and quite possibly, even the world.[/quote]

Really? I just called Toriyama a furry and you're taking it sideways?

Not at all. I'm curious about the fursona thing, though.

Anyways. Glad the person removed the video. I was surprised that they willingly removed it. A lot of art thieves I've dealt with like on DeviantArt always pull some excuse against removing it. Hell there's one that even when I provided overlays that she traced from copyrighted photos ended up being banned from FurAffinity because she blatantly refused to cite her sources and admit that she traced them all.

I haven't yet gotten or attempted to have gotten into the whole furry thing. My background is a Smallville art thing. If the day comes where I cosplay as Pluto, it'll be a very weird day. :P
