GA.EG Owners says Catwa can not claim the property of these SL UV Maps

Elle-Etgance-GA.EGElle-Etgance-GA.EG

We recently received intimations and threats from Catwa Clip and at the end a DMCA!

She accused us to have copied the UV of her heads.
This is TOTALLY WRONG and we wanted to show you the topography of our UV as well as those of Catwa … so that you can compare them and form your own opinion.

The majority of the heads creators based their UV on the standard Second Life ones (and Catwa too). Catwa can not therefore claim the property of these UV which are in fact the property of Linden Lab. In spite of that you will be able to note that our UV topography is very different than the Catwa one and can not be called a copy. We let you judge by your eyes…
We made a second skin layers in our Rick Bento Mesh Head and ADAPTED OUR OWN UV to be a bit more compatible with the skins made for Catwa but these UV keep our own topology and are not a copy.

In fact all this was made for more compatibility between heads, skins and cosmetics and for more choices for the customers…

We want to point out that wanting to oust all competitors by all means (threats, intimidations and lawsuits) to gain a monopoly is really not glorious. This is not a good philosophy and this is not ours. At the end, this kind of behavior can drastically reduce the liberty of creativity on SL. Will there be tomorrow only one creator able to create heads on SL ? Personally, we prefer to work to improve more and more our products and features.

Thank you all for your support and intellectual honesty in the comments on the various publications of CATWA Clip (publications deleted since, it’s a pity).

We also bring all our support to Akeruka who is currently undergoing the same attacks.
We also support the initiative from Omega who is working for more appliers compatibility.

We will keep you informed of the next steps…

Erika Fox of Yolo respond to Lisa Walker’s Copybot accusation

EricaFox

My dear profile followers, I hereby clarify some points that need to be exposed.
On June 20th, while I was on vacation in England, I was accused of practicing illicit copies of textures allegedly belonging to Lisa Walker, Owner of “Lisa Walker makeup” and the old “Huwe”.
As is already known to all of us who make makeup, our inspirations or creations come from “Google” or even from the”Pinterest”, so calling “YOURS” a texture where there was no work in it (hue / saturation, shadow, or any other PS tool) is from a dubious character and even against the law (http://aopi.pt/a/a322.html), so that person could never do a dmca with a rl lawyer, knowing full well that “her texture” which was not even worked, in fact doesnt belong to her, soon the person would face a process of attempted appropriation of intellectual property of others.
I would like to take this opportunity to underline the fact that the person has a UUID of my product in which I have never given to her … Intellectual property ownership illegally IT IS PUNISHABLE (http://aopi.pt/a/aa.html).
This shows that the person who carried out the so-called “Copybot” was not me and after a recent conversation with that person in SL, I was able to realize that the accusation was made for reasons of anger, need for attention and acceptance of the the general public and all the indulgents who support her blindly.
I can say that, after this recent conversation, I waited for a public apology, which didnt existed.
Not wanting to be unfair, I tell to that person that the hug she wanted to give me, can take it and hug herself and enjoy crying about self shame.

I have much more to say but unlike the person who accused me and plunged me in public,
I dont need to make accusations in which it is the knowledge of that person that I have how to prove everything that could be posted here.
With this I want to thank all those who supported me and believed in my honesty, honesty that had never been questioned in 9 years of SL until someone unscrupulous decided to make another victim of her need to spread poison and her need of other people’s pitty.
In 9 years of SL I have always paid my costs to LL, it is at LL that I buy my lindens and I pay my taxes that are due.
I take this opportunity to thank those who accused me without even hearing my part.
I thank the bloggers who left my blogotex due to this drama, because these people showed clearly how they are and this whole problem only made me stronger than I already was, so more than anyone, I thank you from the bottom of my heart to you who have acted against me and I wish that your life be fair, upright and effective as to what you deserve to receive from it!
I do not wish you any harm … just Karma.
Thanks for reading!

The makeup is available at an event called Garden of I do not know what, sold for the price of 300L EACH PACKAGE! Being that I put the 200L the whole package!

Take shame in the face, Erika! In your mouth I no longer pay because you wanted me to copy the others’ store and the other’s skin!
