Sanya Bilavio – owner of Fiore just called out to David Cooper – owner of Doux and L’etre for stealing her skin on Flickr. This is soon going viral on all social media now.
It’s been a very long time since i have posted anything like this, because i’ve been around the block one too many times to know it usually does nothing, but this time i will not stay quiet.
The popular store in SL known as L’etre has been accused of theft a couple times over now, and regardless of how many times he is accused and evidence is shown, the community continues to support him.
I am someone who has given this person my Mesh Head kit files in confidence thinking he was trustworthy. Only to find today after looking at an ad and buying his skin appliers that he has stolen my skin texture and used it for his own profit.
The image above CLEARLY shows my skins arm and side of the body which i have been using since 2013 and L’etres identical arm & side on the right. Take note the skintones are practically identical as well. I chose this piece of the skin to show because it is the most obvious sign of theft.
Filing a DMCA in Second Life would have been my first choice however most times it results in them removing the content only for the thief to throw it back up again.
So, if you care about making money so much David Cooper of L’etre, maybe you should spend more time trying to make original content, or maybe just be more diligent about your thievery, and cover up arm details the next time you yank someones work.
Not everyone on this game works as hard as others and its a dam shame the ones that do don’t get credit for that work. Event owners & customers beware, be a good person online & off.
