Well, that sucks. And I'm both angry and a little embarrassed. I just got a C&D letter from the Ugly Doll people about, of course, the 3D ugly dolls I made to stick in the Sims game. I only emailed them to let them know I'd done it back in January (the same day they were posted), and it's taken them 10 months to notice my egregious infringements? Feh.

So I'll need to take the links to the files down from both GoS and my site. If you've got them, I guess you're supposed to destroy them and pretend you never saw them. I'm going to email them back to make my case, but I already know that it will be pointless. Apparently, my unauthorized use will result in overseas companies producing oodles of knock-off toys. No, really, it will.

*an annoying troll who wanted to fight about intellectual property with me at the time I posted the UDs.

Damn, and now I'm not sure if I do have them.

It just seems so stupid there must be far better places to find the designs and produce knock off toys than a sims site.

Oh, that's crap. >:[ It's FANART, for pity's sake--you aren't making money off of them and never were trying to. Furthermore, you raised awareness that they even exist.

I do have to wonder if this isn't an overeager lawyer throwing off some C&Ds to justify their existence.

They really want you to take them down? That's bullshit. I don't think you should comply with their wishes.

I mean, if anything they made people know about ugly dolls. I don't see how people would want to go and make knock offs of them.
