Hello my dear Steemians and Art Fans,

 

 

Today another post about Deception and again we have noticed it initially posted in our Community. Actually it is an interesting story because this user even after the evidences of Plagiarism is trying to find the explanation and explain that this is his creation from his own imagination.

Therefore, we would to bring it up to your judgment, dear users.

This is the post that we found in „World of xpilar“ community and of course that caught our attention. First of all going back the user had introduction post, that tells us that he is from Sri-lanka.

Case 1: Photo Manipulation: @thisaru


 

This is the last post that we saw and we had suspicion that it is not the work of the user. First of all, the user says that this is his digital Art and also according him:

He has taken the work of others without respected Copyright, but how he can write that the photo manipulation that he has done could have the rights reserved.

  • For those of you who do photogrpahy, it will be clear that this is not a digital Art but Photo Editing. Therefore, we decided to search a bit in Internet and found that actually that photo was created from two different Photos, it is like Photomontage:

Photo1: The Original Author is Guillaume Vassord from Norway and his work is called Aurora

Photo2: The Original Author is Piotr Krzeslak, the professional Photographer whose works are displayed in Shutterstock andFine America Art

The user has made following changes:

  • He erased mountains on the right
  • He has taken the Aurora Borealis
  • At the end he just added some shadows from trees on bottom

Once again the user without shaming himself calls that his own work and claims that he reserves the right for this image.

When looking at these little details it is obvious that the user simply took the Photo and edited but not created from his own imagination*

Seeing that almost every single posts is plagiarized in our opinion the user had given enough reasons to exclude him from our Community. We also would like to notify @steemcurator01, to support our anti-Plagiarism campaing

If you like what we do, please support our Initiative, it takes a lot of time and research to collect the evidence and we are working hard on keeping Steem blockchain free of Plagiarism and Abuse.

I don't know why people do this if you know how to make a digital art than why not to go for a new original design instead of copying.

Agree, the people who have access to such digital tools could create something from their own imagination but for some it is easy to get someone else's work and present as their own.

Ho @stef1 , I was thinking that why do people do this & what do they get from it.

Finally I came to know the main culprit
"The Social media".
To get famous to get rich to get known are some of the reasons why all the type of Cyber Crimes are being done. This is really spoiling our young generation. Something should also be done to remove this negative competition among the Youngsters.

Estas prácticas no ayudan en nada a nuestra plataforma
