I don't like it either because your avvy is like your identity on the net. I can't say that anyone has stolen mine. But people can be a little more origional with choosing an avvy. Did the person know that u had that avvy? Because they might have just found it too and put it up without knowing that u were using the same one.

I saw another person with the same avy as my previoud hollow ichigo. But I think I know where he got it from. It's from another mega-forum that has the hollow ichigo fanclub. They gave permission to use them. other than that, I think it's safe not to take unless you ask or given permission to.

You could always do what Korrupt did and embed a watermark into your avatar.

Imitation is the highest from of flattery, huh? So I'd just consider sending them a jucy pm about how they are flattering me. It would be hilarious.

Or go for the more straight forward approach , and just ask them to pick another if you had it first (use charm if its a lady kk). If they say no, well not much you can do except talk to mods i guess.

I saw one with the same avy as mine. Except the color looked more pastel.

I steal my avatars all the time. In fact, I don't think I've ever actually made one myself. I don't think using an avatar necessarily means that you made it, though I could see someone assuming it. But this is the only site I actually use an avatar on, usually I just leave it blank.

Most of mine are from photobucket. But, if you draw yours by hand and someone stole it- That would really suck.

^ huh?

If you didn't make the avi, then you have no rights over it so get over it. I mean come on, most of us just take avatars that we like from some site that's available to the general public. Don't think that someone else isn't going to see it and take it too. Honestly...

If it wasn't your work, then you can't claim rights over it. It's as simple as that. You can't force someone to stop using an avatar that's not yours if it is available freely over the internet to everyone...

i don't think it's THAT much of a big deal whether someone takes your avi or not. i can see how it would be extremely annoying esp if you went through all that trouble to find a unique one. but... online is online. most people don't care if you are going to confront them about it or not, nor do they really care for a stranger's feelings. plus, i guess the avi's that we all have are from someone else.. one way or another.

Define steal...

Because I never use the Avi's I copy, rather I copy them to the HD, because their so badass or funny. From there I show them to some people and then throw delete them. But I never use them as my own avatar.
