To dislike Sinatra is a sign of highly questionable taste. To dislike the Beatles is a serious character flaw.

Taking someone elses creations, and claiming them as your own, is pathetic. You've pretty much insulted the creators by saying it was you who put the hard work into these icons... and this isn't the first time you've claimed someone elses artwork as your own.

Smarten up. Ignorance is no excuse.

Reply is the button on the right btw... close though.

I agree, wholeheartedly. Now that being said, does anyone other than me think it's about time that Hein ended his protest and started making icons again?

I can understand his anger at the scumbags who stole his work, but to let that put an end to his creations is a bit excessive, I think.

Okay, be gentle.

[Edited to add that I saw this thread BEFORE seeing the thread in which mouss blatantly ripped off two artists. Shame on you, man!]

I'm trying to figure out whether there's some way that we're taking the wrong interpretation of mouss's poor English, but seeing as how he linked to a ResExcellence download that claims the icons are his, I just can't figure out a way that this could be a misinterpretation on our part.

Any way I cut it, he seems to have grabbed someone else's icons and tried to pass them off as being his own.

mouss, je parle français un peu si vous pensez que les gens ici ne vous comprends pas correctemente.

Canadians understand french... thanks to all those wasted years of french we have to take in school. I think Mr. Pottymouth needs a timeout.

Si vous ne vouliez pas que les gens ici fussent gênées, vous ne devriez pas avoir essayé de réclamer le travail de quelqu'un d'autre en tant que vos propres.

Insulter les Américains ne va pas vous aider non plus, nous pourrions tout faire ça si nous voulions, ce n'est pas difficile.

C'est vous qui a tort, pas les autres ici.

In English: First of all, not everyone here is American. Second, now not only do you look like a retard, but an immature one that does not know when to shut up and sit down.

In French: Tout d'abord, pas chacun ici est américain. En second lieu, maintenant vous ressemblez un fils de putain, mais non mûr qui ne savent pas quand fermer ta bouche et lorsque t'asseoir.

Isn't that a somewhat contradictory statement?


For Komisar, mouss' last post:

"For anyone who's not happy, one thing: stick an iPod up your arse, and if that does nothing for you, try a dual G5.

Thanks to anyone who can translate this into english since me and hamburgers (americans) don't get on."

Interesting how mouss assumes we're all American. o_O

I'm Canadian... and I still think he's a moron for posting someone elses work as his own. I guess the minute you point out that people are stealing, they are allowed to get all pissed off... like they have a right. Amazing world we live in.

I'm waiting for mouss to actually post something that is his own creation... it'll be a longer wait than Omega. ^_^

Personne n'aime ca, ... Alors, au lieu d'insulter les gens en balancant des grossiertés, va donc faire tes devoirs, je vois que ton orthographe laisse à désirer, ...

Ah ah ah! mouss, listen, I think you are very young to behave you like that, ... Would you like, if you were an artist, that someone steal your creations, and sign them with his hands ? No one will like that, ... So, instead of insulting people throwing insanities, go do your homeworks, I see that your orthograph is pretty approximative

By the way, for english spoken, sorry for my bad english, ....

The other thread has no picture of monsieur mouss's, so has anyone downloaded them and compared them pixel for pixel with the other iMac icons? Not trying to defend him, but would like evidence.

I'm English so should hate him, but that's just silly; however, if he has stolen them it is inexcusable and should he be banned or something.

Ironic if he is French, a culture rich in original artistic and intellectual work - he should be ashamed for letting his country down.

Really?

Show us a screenshot of the PSD. I have downloaded both of them and they are a pixel by pixel rip.

He just repackaged and claimed them his.

It's really time to lock this thread.

I'm even pissed at myself for posting on it.

To dislike Sinatra is a sign of highly questionable taste. To dislike the Beatles is a serious character flaw.

Sometimes life ain't that easy M'Kay...
The question would be - correct me if I'm wrong - who was the first to say :

"Hey, I've borrowed (well, stolen actually) some pictures from the Apple website and turned them into icons. Since I thought no one would notice, I went along and called them my own."

mouss, le problème est avec cet icon ci:



qui a été créé par esXXi, et fait mystérieusement partie de ce que t'a offert pour téléchargement sur ResExcellence.

J'ai comparé les deux icons en Photoshop et le tien est une copie parfaite - peut-tu expliquer ceci?

Translation:
mouss, the problem is with the following icon:

See above

which was created by esXXi yet mysteriously is to be found in what you offered for download on ResExcellence.

I have compared the two icons in Photoshop and yours is a pixel-perfect copy - can you explain this?

You can just compare mine and the one he packaged, they're the same. It is not based on any Apple photograph, and uses my own specific angle I use for most of my icon work. I sent the staff at Resexellence, as requested, proof - which was the full size export of my save (over double the size). It was proof enough that they removed the file because of the rip.
