Comic Theft

Postby Swot » Tue Mar 13, 2012 11:34 pm

Hello, I haven't posted here in ages, but I thought I should post about this.
While reading another comic that I read, I was linked to the following tumbler story.
TL;DR version: An android developer is stealing the comics from the comic's rss feed and is displaying them in an app, making money off of adds in the process.
With no funds going to the creators (or really, any permission asked at all) this is widely regarded as stealing.
Grim Tales is one of the comics "Supported" by the app.
I am currently unaware of any way to actually contact the writers of the Snafu Comics, and I am in the tedious process of contacting almost ever other comic creator I know, so I was hoping one of you fine gentlemen could do this for me.

At any rate, the link to the actual story:
http://chrishanel.tumblr.com/post/19196 ... t-is-theft
The avatar is pretty temporary, as I simply took it from this forum.

I'll let Bleed and Dave know. Do you want to like... foster discussion on this? Because if it is a request, it's fulfilled.

you're not exactly a new member, but you haven't really done anything but lurk. we're a friendly bunch. maybe you would want to post more, and participate in the community? :0) I would let this be a quasi-welcome thread.

Oh, uh. Welcome, I guess...

I find this very interesting. Is this a free app? If not, this could cause a very large catastrophe.

When messing around with shit like this, you have to give credit where credit is due EVERY time you mention it.

And not even that is enough if he is making money off of it.

If Dave didn't authorize this, this can and will get very messy. I hope that it's just a misunderstanding and everything is hunky-dory already. If not, well...

Fuck.

I let Dave know already, he emailed me back pretty quickly this time, so he's aware of it :0)

Also I think it is a funny double standard how most people here think this is stealing and immoral while most o us use online manga readers and download plenty of roms.

Also wondering how Dave would even be able to try and force this person to take down the comic.

Apparently the one doing it is willing to take down someone's webcomic if asked.

Friendly bunch? If you really wanna believe that shit, don't go to the Spam forum at all. And you better behave like a motherfucker, because I haven't been fucking around lately ever since Lord Soth became Marquis du Soth and Warbear became Modbear aka they're fucking mods.

This is a world guarded by a trio of kings; absolute monarchy shall be absolute, or damnation.

I can't say much about Comic Theft since I don't come across often with stuff like this. It's a shame it's happened before with the comics though.

Welcome, Swot! You can go to whatever forum you wish, here...if you even come back. You seem like a decent character, so you'll do quite fine.

Lol I was just thinking this.

Let's say a friendly dog only bites when provoked. The difference however is that when the dogs here bite, they bite hard.

Don't listen to Rosso. He's biased because we don't like him. Spam would give you a chance unless you fail to show any improvement.

Soth and Warbear are always friendly... You are just generalizing everyone in Spam. Those two became mods for a reason.

Nah I'm sorry If you took that the wrong way, of course they're friendly, I like em too. What I'm saying to the guy is don't fuck around, especially in the Spam forum.

It drives me nuts though that Mirak's not a mod anymore. Four mods would have been so much better.

I dunno if this was stolen, but the other day I found all 70 comics of Grim Tales Afterbirth on a wiki site. Pretty good read, but I can't get over wondering how it got there. I'm guessing it was stolen most likely.
