Do not buy NFT made with my art.
Do not make NFT with my Creative-Commons artworks.
If you respect my art, remember and apply this.
Here is my article about what just happened: https://www.davidrevoy.com/article864/dream-cats-nfts-don-t-buy-them
@davidrevoy Wow. What a shitty idea. I’m astonished they could sell *that*.
I’m sorry this happened to you :s.
@davidrevoy "se ne deve comprare tutte medicine" => "he must spend all rised money buying medicines"
@davidrevoy This is outrageous! I am so sorry your name has been slapped on this scam of a poopcoin.
@davidrevoy This is a reason I prefer CC-BY-SA over just CC-BY. To me it is the right balance of freedom vs. restrictions because it provides some stipulations to ensure derivative works retain freedom of distribution. (although I know some people prefer maximum permissiveness and others prefer more restrictions like non-commercial or explicit restrictions on use...chacun à son goût!)
Perhaps the SA provision would've provided some protection from the "artificial uniqueness" of the attached NFT? Like if the NFT owner got upset that someone just used "their" dreamcat then tough luck because they are obligated to let everyone use it freely so long as you and ROPLAK were credited? Then the NFT would have no market value?
I don't know...NFTs in most cases make no sense to me at all since the digital asset can be duplicated regardless of licensing or the attachment of an NFT.
@msh This application would be totally compatible and legal with CC-By-Sa. As long as the license is written along, and result available under the same license...
Only NC could stop NFT. ND could have prevented the DeepDream filter.
It's a case of Moral right, not legal right. Youll find it written on "Notices" at the end of every CC license (CC-By included) : https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.
@davidrevoy @msh I avoid NC, because it tricks the honest re-users into a dead-end: https://www.draketo.de/light/english/politics/free-culture-danger-noncommercial
Example: If you had used NC for Lecture, I would have been forced to use NC for my roleplaying book to enable re-using it (assuming no other by-sa works were in there) and you wouldn’t be able to make money from stuff made by re-using my latex templates.
At a glance, looks like someone using a proclivity for art, to pay them for something illegal they are doing eg. #blackmail.
Real artists know you can't make money legitimately like this.
We actually think govt need to crack down on #NFT as #unexplainedIncome, if they convert to #fiat, but from what we can tell NFT are encouraged by govt because they distract from #Bitcoin and #Monero etc.
NFT are to 2020 what #altCoins were to 2016.
Copyright is a thieves idea and nft is not far off
Le copyright est une idée de voleurs et le nft n'est pas loin (des fois qu ce soit mal traduit)
Just want to take a moment to say thank you for creating the awesome original cat avatar generator and releasing it for all to enjoy. I think I need to upgrade my profile avatar now.
@davidrevoy Je partagé ta frustration. C'est vraiment poche!
Je pense que tu fais bien de ne pas aller te battre contre ça. Tu n'y gagnerais rien d'autre que d'avantage de frustrations. 😞
Je me demande si ce genre de NFT s'accompagne de garantie légale (tel un transfert de copyright). D'a ce que je sais, le contenu d'un NFT doit être accessible au monde d'une manière ou d'une autre. J'ai souvent tendance à percevoir les NFT comme quelque chose ayant de la valeur pour ce qui reconaisse leur uniqueté sur le réseau.
@marius851000 Tout depend de ce que l'auteurice du NFT mentionne. (on peu contractualiser tout en fait, services, droits, objet, etc... )
Dans ce cas-ci; rien d'explicite, eg: https://opensea.io/assets/0x495f947276749ce646f68ac8c248420045cb7b5e/82723732589168510301774833741522954464476851151515153640422662930159840002049 ; juste avoir la propriété du code barre qui représente ce dessin.
@davidrevoy I remember a discussion about the GPL many years ago. The GPL does not protect a buyer from paying more for GPL licensed software than the price of a floppy disk. The hope at that time was: The buyer realizes that he became a victim of a fraud. He and everyone else could have gotten the same software and much more for practically free.
@davidrevoy With NFT, the buyer only receives a sequence of digits. The original digital work can be reproduced any number of times; identically or in a modified form. If the "market" is flooded with generative graphics the buyer becomes the loser. The customer as victim.
My argumentation is based on the Age of Enlightenment. But Kant's "der Ausgang des Menschen aus seiner selbstverschuldeten Unmündigkeit" seems to be without effect today.
@davidrevoy Honestly this is why I default to BY-NC-SA with a note to contact me for alternative licensing. Not that fraudsters care about the rules anyway, but it gives me more tools to fight back with
@elfi Yes. When I had the first case, the art was under CC-By-NC-Nd and OpenSea immediately removed the copy. The NC rule works in this case.
@davidrevoy I just found your cat generator through this and it's totally awesome! Is there a way to manually select all the parts I want to have like with other common avatar creators?
@email@example.com its absolutely a dick move to sell CC artworks as NFT. i agree fully with you there. i don't wanna see my art in NFTs either
@davidrevoy There goes the "NFTs are for the artists" justification out the window.
Turns out it was all about the money all along!
Donc franchement, tu fais un caca nerveux pour rien, à la limite fait un post rappelant que tu n'as rien à voir avec ce NFT là et que tu n'apprécies pas particulièrement de voir ton nom/ton travail associé à un concept qui va en sens inverse de ce en quoi tu crois et agis, et basta quoi.
@davidrevoy you are a wonderful person for creating such a cool tool, and that other guy is clearly a jerk.
