Please make the voting in the Bitcointalk Heat thread.
in this forum will vote everybody for his own design... and im pretty sure 70% of all users are only joined this forum to make a design even they are not invested in heat.
to have a nice and fair vote.. i pretty would suggest to make it on the thread.
I know, you are a plagiarism !!
check this link
I think your logo is not qualified lol
I think that case is not plagiarism, but violating copyright. He buy that stock and use it on contest which is illegal in all creative contest as far i know, unless he provide source link for it and tell the contest holder.
i understand what you mean dodolalopo,
that would be right, if it would be an artist contest.
but it was a contest for creating a Christmas Card.
And i have the Copyright of it.. like i said.
here is a quote from the license from shutterstock.
"[...]Incorporated into merchandise intended for sale or promotional distribution (collectively "Merchandise"), including, without limitation, textiles, artwork, magnets, wall-art, calendars, toys, stationery, greeting cards, and any other physical reproduction for resale or distribution, provided that such Merchandise incorporates material creative or functional elements apart from the Image(s).[...]"

we can talk more about it. but in this case.. how ever u look in that its not plagiarism or violating copyright.. because i own the license/copyright.
Normaly i don´t care about posts like that from cockroach, because i know what i do.
Im a professional graphic designer and i know the rules of copyright.
I never would use exchange photos that are the basics for a brand.
In that case it was a simple christmas cards for kids - i was correct in the license because im the owner of it.
And it was well edited and designed - kids would be happy. I spend money to save my time for things that wasnt worth to design on my own. (fucking 0.065BTC)
For that amount no designer will even power on his mac.
If anyone still have superficial knowledge to call someone "plagiarism" - feel free.
But that isn´t right. I know my business.
Im feeling sore to have a conversation like that, because i don´t care if my logo´s wins or not - i want the best for heat.. and don´t want to rund down "competitors" because we should be a team.
a nice community.
