We are just trying to find the source of these anonymised layouts, anyway I didn't start this thread and judging by the comments here, layout designers ( including you ) are justifiably upset by it


I understand Chris, and yes this guy has gone one step further and actually edited peoples are work and in some cases removed peoples branding. Mine included.

Ive had two sets off geddy over the years and no layout has any graphical edits done on them from what I've seen. This was a while ago but I cant imagine he would be editing peoples artwork.

No I didn't say he was editing peoples artwork, and I was just passing on info I received via pm as to the source of the layouts, if I'm proved wrong so be it.

Moving on Mr Wizard -

 

How could you prevent such things happening again, perhaps if all artwork released via a future mfme 5.x could have a lock layout option i guess?

 

that way all new layout could be locked if the creator so wishes?

We have already been down that route before and it proved very unpopular, so no I won't be adding that again.

 

But I have other ideas.

Due to concerns raised from various quarters, this thread is (at least temporarily] locked.

In view of the fact that no further information regarding any threat against the seller being evidenced, Im reopening the thread.
Also the fact that the seller was invited to provide further details about the supposed private FTP but has not done so.

Interesting to note that their DVD listings now seem to indicate that after 15th December the item will not be physically sent but will only be available to download - this would appear to be a clear breach of eBay rules?

It's already a breach of eBay rules.

Yes, but knowing ebay as I do, they don’t consistently understand the issues raised, until you can find a nice tick-box which is clear enough to whoever reads the report.

Lol. I like they way he said he puts his logo on so no one else can steal it, well resell it.

Until we have a solution I will be keep my clean copy and havng a water mark throughout the entire layout, dont want to do this but like tommy Im not wasting my awesome photoshop skills for someone to make money from. May as well sell my own layouts.

I wouldnt sell layouts... no one would buy them as they are BAFs ;)

Hes doing a fair bit of work unless he has some kind of photoshop action set up to apply the logo ans something to change the config text.

Easiest way to get a stop on the account would be to purchase a dvd/access , when received raise a complaint as copyright, get instant refund and the ability to leave feedback, ebay these days doesnt like negative feedback and after a few his account will be put on hold/ under investigation.

I Dont think locked layouts is the answer, Could we not have a locked component option (that would always be topmost) and would require password to remove?

 

atleast then downloaded from xxx created by xxx cannot be removed by anyone without a password (and most importantly, is optional)
