Someone must stop him, we have a huge job to create sprites without asking for payment, then some sucker wants to make money at the expense of our sweat

But we know that all gaming companies with super heroes, both Capcom, DC Comics and Marvel, are banning the use of their creations and characters for sale and also for illegal use. Last week, a boy aged 22 was arrested at his own residence for illegally using the image of characters from the Mortal Kombat games for Mugen, this happened in Italy and soon in the United States as well. We must be careful with the use of characters for Mugen, just as we should avoid trying to make money from it.
Mugen is over, we will get very upset and saddened by this.
Hugs and take care.

@Ax, we do not break any copyright law due to its been classified as fan art due to we're not trying to make money.

what i'm more worried about is that kind of thing being a basis for gaming companies to declassify mugen works as fan art and thus ruin mugen as a whole.

contact the guy directly at: http://www.youtube.com/user/KUWAITIGAMER1985 (look like the answer to where he from, kuwait)

what i suggest for anyone wanting to do more to stop him is contact the host website at: http://www.weebly.com/contact/#

i'll be filling out a letter under abuse, and think that the best option if any of you want to follow suit. the dmca contact may be more about gaming companies, but it a more complicated form to fill out. my letter will be about he made none of the sprites he is selling and how his actions actually could be detrimental to a worldwide hobby as a whole.

@Beto,

Don't let this sorta thing get to you. Remember this is a hobby and our activity has nothing to do with money. Besides this guy is in bigger trouble! No 


Arrow He has some company owned sprites from Capcom in there, if he even makes a dollar off of that he is at risk of going to prison.

personally I feel sorry for the guy and I hope no one sends Capcom a link because they could seriously ruin that guy's life.

There's also many other company owned sprites and even 3D models being sold there. For his own sake I hope he lives in a place where copyright laws don't apply.

I hope they go easy on him. No

@Erroratu,

objection 

I would advise against that. mugen shouldn't get involved with money problems, we're using copyrighted material as it is. Let the company themselves deal with this issue.
but that's exactly WHAT I said, we do nonprofit organization, do not think correct someone selling something that someone provides free

PS: I do not have a complete character but I will soon Smile

On the other hand, if this can lead to problems that will Spriter author could be in jeopardy?

I don't like how this issue is making us act. This guy simply needs to take the responsible way out, and shutdown what he's doing before this becomes anymore problematic for us all. D:

@Ax, i didnt misread anything, i referred to your final line about us using copyright material, which we do not violate due to it all for free and thus classified as fan art.

and i could care less if the guy go to jail or not, though he probably wont given he is in kuwait.

my concern is his actions and those types of actions by others leading to gaming companies declassifying mugen as fan art, and thus then there would be copyright trouble for us all. wouldnt be the first time the actions of few (in this example, people like that guy who use mugen works to make money) have repercussions on a much larger population (in this case, the entire mugen community). that is why i advocate people using the contact webhost info i provided above. he can't do anything if his website taken offline.

Many people still do not know, but the Federal Court of the United States, ordered the closure of the storage of data and files Hotfile site. Because many people wrongly used the site. Thus causing many people to lose the opportunity to store and download stuff from that site. One reason was that bad intentioned people were using the site to sell files.

Guys, let's be more careful with what we do with the Mugen, but our dream Mugen Free For All will end and we can do nothing about it.

hugs

No, Mugen can't die out because of the irresponsible actions of 1 individual. The world isn't that cruel... I hope. Sad
