A rifle with the stolen image:
Original artwork by me:
Someone has stolen one of my artworks to make a custom skin for a gun in a game called Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
The name of the weapon is CS:GO M4A4 Howling Dawn.

I'm just letting you know that I did design this piece, but I didn't upload the items to the stream marketplace and the spineless worm who submitted it didn't have my permission to do so. However, I have reported both copyright infringements and I'm hoping that the items will be removed soon, solving the case.
Great way to ruin my day, thank you for that.
But what's in the past is done, was a good rifle. You should try making a skin yourself.
Oh, and everyone knows you aren't the real WarOwl.
There's only one wolf not two and finally it's a fucking dog they look similar but to be honest you did do a damn fine job at making art
Looking forward to your work.
Like would've this been a problem if he would've actually called you out in that workshop description?
I mean in the end it's all promotion for you after all. Or were the designs used for an company and for that reason it was copyrighted?
Didn't even tried
shame it got stolen but now is good weapon on counter strike with alternate art no copyright
It's saddening to see that this is happening all over again. I hope that the copyright infringing design gets removed from the game.
This is why I play CS 1.6 and CS:source. People can just retexture weapons and import gun models without legal issues and without getting payed. It's private use, no one makes money off it, and people always give credit because that's what good normal people do.
