Please Keep in mind that I am no lawyer even if I will use law-related terms. And that English is my Third language.
Let us begin :
At some point when you create OCs , you may find yourself face to face with a OCs which can be almost identical. Unfortunately, one common indicator of uploading creations online is the proportion of individuals who will attempt copy, borrow or steal the design of your original character. Or simply create something similar without the attention of stealing.
Many are have been frustrated by several of copies or downright theft of OC without a single note or email asking them of permission. And many find this less than flattering, more or less find it offensive to have somebody copy or steal content you created. Even if they copied it. And some just came up with the same idea. And never knew of your creation.
But remember how copyright works:<

Sing unto me,
Say how you know me and care for me.
Say that you know how things could have been,
And the way things would be,
Here I am to be alone,
Trying my hardest to atone.
Do not weep over this day,
For I did not fall away.
I will lift my head knowing my sins,
Battling this fight I must always win!
