More contract talk...HOW TO MAKE ONE

Thu Jul 31, 2014, 1:19 PM
Ok I have talked and read some people's TOS and frankly they freak me out.... So I thought I needed a GENERAL talk about documents and how to set them up.

______________________________________________________

Terms of Service:

This document is where you lay out YOUR rights and the PATRONS rights to the product you are delivering. This is Mine. Mine only applies to custom adoptions. If you are doing commissions you need a different one because you often don't own the characters. So here is what you ROUGHLY need to address in a TOS

1. At what point does the work become theirs?
Why? I have this so up till the moment I upload it. I own it.

2.What the patron do/not do with the design?
Why? so they don't do something with it you don't like

3.COMMERCIAL AND PRIVATE USE
you have to do this. no exceptions. who owns what.

4. Anything else you want to talk about? Other section
Myo- detail their rights/ yours
Co owning- detail their rights/ yours
Resale- detail their rights/ yours
What you will not do- detail their rights/ yours

5. LASTLY AND MOST IMPORTANTLY A RIGHT TO DECLINE SERVICE.
PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE THIS OUT. this is to protect you from trolls/fake bids/discovering a past of negligent payments
here is mine:
**Breaking this agreement will result in blacklisting from future purchases. Further infractions will result in a ban. If after accepting work I discover the customer has a past of delinquent payments, returns, or reselling. I reserve the right to refund money before work is completed, breaking the contract. If I don't like how a consumer is treating me I also reserve the right to refund money before work is completed, breaking the contract.**

I specify this cause you guys always wright "I can decline work" and it sounds negative/ your not elaborating. these contracts are all about wording. You have to sound emotionless and to the point. Don't write emotional things in a contract/ terms. It sounds bad and can often discourage buyers.
______________________________________________________

Contract:

This document is where you go OKAY YOU READ EVERYTHING, You made a order. You are sending me MONEY. The contract details the rights the seller is providing to the patron/ their rights to their money and refunds/ iterations. It is also your ONLY LEGALLY BINDING DOCUMENT. "you agree automatically when you purchase" is  to  me BULLSHIT because they never signed,checked,stated,or wrote that they agree. Yes that statement is technically legally binding but its not something you can pick up and show to people with the users account information. To me it is a lazy way to do this/ if you get ripped off you have no tangible line that you can point to and say. Yes you did agree right here, they can argue they never saw it. Also to me it feels very anti-consumer but idk. This is Mine. So here is what you ROUGHLY need to address in a contract.

1.The date they signed it
Why? cause if you have no refunds after work is delivered and they charge back....well.... they agreed.

2.Both your names and paypal emails.
Why? because even if their paypal is fraudulent/ someone else's. they are providing the account which is where the money is from if it is refunded. It doesn't matter who's account it actually is. Your mom's, Your dad's. I don't care I want my money.

3. What did they buy?
So you can be like they agreed to buy one thing. They got it. Nothing else.

4. Your terms about refusing work.
Why? XD SO if they want to return it and keep the art you legally said you would reclaim the work and keep the money.

5. Who's Copyright is it anyway?
They own rights to the character and idea. NOT your work. Specify your creative commons liscence when you submit (DA has this feature). Also restate they have no right to reproduce without consent

6.Payment amounts and how it is determined!
What are the elements that determine price. I have this also outlined in detail on my price sheet. I also keep my notes. all this part says is. WE TALKED ABOUT IT AND AGREED. Make sure in your notes you ASK. Is this amount fair to you. they say YES. they have agreed to the total. the end.

7.) PAYMENT TERMS!?!
Iterations cost money. and pay me up front within 24 hours. I don't recommend any other policy.

8.) What other documents they agreed to
list your terms and price sheets/ other docs.

9.) A PLACE TO SIGN AND DATE.

keep all copies of contracts on hand at all times.
______________________________________________________

I will go over making order forms and price lists later...*rolls*

Thank you / Update

Wed Jul 30, 2014, 11:35 PM
Thank you everyone for the endless amount of support I've received due to the fraud that happened today. This isn't a fun experience for myself or any of the other victims.
Luckily we're all working together to try and get our rightfully earned money back.

Currently, myself and several other users have filed serious evidence against Pixlett and PayPal IS working to fight for us against the credit card company.
There is no guarantee, since the CC company gets the final say, but there is at least hope. ;u;

Now, I just wanted to say two things:




1. Please don't say hateful things on Pixlett/ToxicMutagens pages.

Yes, what they did is beyond treacherous and I believe even illegal.
Some of my friends are now unable to pay their bills or eat because of Pixlett's selfishness.
But there's no need to tell them to "rot in jail" or call them slurs. Trust me, I am furious at this situation, but lashing out in anger is unhealthy and will not help get the money back.
Let's face it, if these chargebacks end up working in OUR favor, Pixlett is going to be a miserable child wallowing in her own debt and guilt. Not to sound morbid, but that alone is enough punishment...one that she will have to live with for the rest of her life.
No, I disagree!





2. A lot of people are asking to help me out financially through donations.

This means so much to me, but I honestly don't feel right taking other people's money without providing something in return. However, a lot of people are being really persistent (which is very sweet), so I have set up a PayPal donations widget for anyone who would like to contribute. If it would make others happy to help, then I don't want to be rude/stubborn.

If you seriously would like to donate,
You can do it here, by clicking on the yellow Paypal donate button:
sushidogs.tumblr.com/





Regarding donations, here is what I am proposing and promising:

  • a) If the credit card company settles in Pixlett's favor, I will keep any sort of donation to make up for what she has stolen from me, and I will be infinitely grateful for the help.



  • b) If the credit card company DOES reverse the transactions (crossing my fingers!) and I get all my money back, I will donate ALL of the funds earned from the "Donate" button to some reputable charity organization(s). So either way, your money is not going to waste. If you know of any really good charities, (ex. animal rescue, rape/abuse survivors, etc) please comment below so I can look into them. There are people who need money way more than I do...and I genuinely want to replace Pixlett's evil act with an act of servitude. Huggle! Heart




That is all, thank you so much for reading.

La pirateria es realmene mala?

Journal Entry: Thu Jul 31, 2014, 7:38 PM


Nosé ahora quede con esta duda después de que me quede viendo la dichoza noticia de que piensan censurar y eliminar todas las paginas que subtitulan y distribuyen los mangas  español e ingles, entre otros idiomas, a mi me parece completamente LA MAYOR IDIOTEZ jamas hecha de parte de japon si bien esta bien una cosa es limitar la pirateria, que no sea tan descarada, que la regulen y limiten el producto a eliminar todo acceso habido y por haber del mismo, no les recuerda esto a SOPA? meh

Esta bien si eliminan paginas o mulan personas que cobran por productos de forma ilegiima, violando los derechos de autor, pero que hay de aquellas que las distribuyen sin fines de lucro, solo de fans para fans? es una completa esupidez, ya que de por si, si nos quedamos con los brazos cruzados sabemos que aqui no llegan casi animes a la tv por que lamentablemene los imbesiles creyentes cabeza de culo (por que hay creyentes mas racionales no los juzgo a todos por igual) creen que el anime es del diablo, da fuck lationoamerica? y de paso los doblajes que llegan son de un asco...

¿Cómo veriamos anime ahora? ¿como harán llegar los japoneses sus series a este lado? si bien seamos honestos no todos tenemos aqui dinero para pagar por leer un libro, como lo tendremos para compramos mangas que si acaso llegan o vemos en las combensiones? y ni hablar de los animes

y dejenme decirles que japon puede hacer todo lo que quiera, pero eso no detendra la pirateria, es mas estoy 100% segura que se alborotara mas y se hara peor (y peor que la droga) por que hay muchos fans que harian lo que sea y lo que esten a su alcanse por terminar sus series, y yo de verdad digo a todas estas, es ilegal, esta mal, pero tampoco se puede eliminar algo malo por completo, por que entonces lo que se supone que es bueno se corrompe, entonces... eso vuelve buena la pirateria? no lo se.

Apollo el hecho de la distribucion de series de forma grauita, ademas de que limitarnos a nosotros de este producto solo por que los egoistas japoneses creen que eso les baja los recuersos, no les va a ayudar en nada y otendran menos ganancias, por que creamen que tener solo compradores de tu propio pais, no basta. Ya sea si es verdad o no que quitaran las paginas (quien sabe puede ser solo un susto estupido como SOPA pero la gente parece estar seria con esto) eso no quita el hecho de que este tema de combersacion es algo que se me hace interesante, por que nos demuestra que incluso las cosas que muchos suponen que son malas beneficia a una parte, y enonces como queda la otra?

nose, me gustaria que me aclararan la mente y saber que piensan de este tema, en mi caso la pirateria es mala y si es verdad pero solo si te beneficias del producto, pero si lo distribuyes (aunque no sea legal) solo para un bien a la comunidad no puede ser tan malo por que no te beneficias tu del dinero de los demas a costas de oro, sino que lo haces de gratis, y le brindas un entretenimiento a muchos, quien sabe...

This is a realization I had after getting the chance to watch some old school Pixar films in HD recently. While the story of Toy Story holds up well, the actual graphics and presentation look downright archaic in HD. Sometimes characters appear to “float” on the ground, while other times their feet intersect into the floor. Bump mapping textures are grossly pixelated. And I could literally see the wireframe corners of Buzz Lightyear’s mouth clipping into itself.

That being said, one of the positive things I noticed was when I was watching A Bugs Life. The movie just POPPED with so much clarity and crispness. It was so beautiful to look at in HD. And then it hit me... the reason 3D movies don’t look this good, is because they’re not crisp anymore.

See, as technology got better, we learned how to round the edges of characters better. Objects that are square are still slightly rounded on the corners to make them more believable. And we learned to add in rack focus techniques to blur backgrounds or create a depth of field. All these things make the movies look more like a live action film... but they come at the cost of crispness.

Aside from a couple choice scenes in A Bugs Life, foreground and background objects are crystal clear. The colors seem more vibrant and bright and clean and they help things pop out better. It’s like playing Wind Waker in HD, or Viva Pinata. It’s amazing what just a little bit of contrasting color can do to make things really sizzle.

I dunno. I’m not saying I WANT all CG movies to lose all the technological advances we’ve made so far. But at the same time, I kinda feel bad that we’re not getting as much vibrancy and crisp clean lines as we could out of them appearing in HD.
