These past few days social media platforms have been on serious heat with some selected designers at war with David Cooper – owner of L’Etre . Hours ago, David Cooper posted on his Facebook page reason why he felt he must have used a copybotted template and must have made a mistake and Fiore responded as well on her Flickr page taking away previous comment she earlier made from Flickr and Facebook .. Hmm makes one wonder if all these simply wouldn’t have been resolved in closed doors instead of dragging their lingerie out in public or is this a publicity stunt?.. Read below
I am sorry for not having spoken about the thing that I’m being accused of, but I have been thinking that the skin base I used since the beginning wasn’t legit.
When I started in SL and I decided to start working on skins and in my creations, maybe my mistake due to lack of experience was using skin base to make my own skin using that one as a start. So after so long having the v3 body skin out I Heard another content creator told me I was using her body as a base, i was shocked by the such accusation. Try to show my innocence in front of this, i can not tell insurance that the skin that i used years ago was copy or stolen, but one thing that i can say strongly and firmly that at no time was my intention copy anybody, since I really know the work that involves creating.
The work of the creators is really hard, you have to be constantly with your work to get the public to respect you as, and you can understand that i feel so proud of my work and of course the people who believe in me, And I’m not willing to let the people defame my name and my brand. I like what i do, im happy and blissful about my work. And I guess using a skin that wasn’t done by scratch by me was a mistake, I admit it. But one thing is for sure, no matter what you create, everything is a lights and shadows game and most of use tend to make them in the same áreas, for example on a face we hightlight the nice, cheeks, forehead, etc. Plus everyone uses online references in order to create. I enjoy creating more tan anything else, it helps me in the moments of boredoom and I love learning new stuff and having new challenges like for example creating hairs was. So I just want to say thank you to everyone who supports me and my Brand.

Sanya Bilavio – owner of Fiore response after David Cooper post below.
After going over all the evidence, hearing Davids response, and receiving several professional opinions regarding filing a DMCA on this issue, I have spoken to David.
There is no real way i can prove David used my skin texture on purpose as a base for his skin. He has claimed he did not know the template he purchased used my skin, which leaves it a he say, she say case.
