Following the previous post, we just got whispered that not only is Little Bones stealing Stealthic’s sims alpha, she is also stealing other sims creators alpha for her hairs as well.
Also below is a clearer version . What is actually baffling is that she doesn’t even edit or modify them, she literally takes them and put it on her texture and start selling the hairs. There are other hairs which are also similar but designers names are not identified at the moment as so many hair available in the sims.
The Big Questions: Why did she have to do this when she’s a big store owner is Second Life? Somethings we just never understand.
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…
