I've seen many problems regarding using Oc's and what not without permission, but i've never seen someone who wants to take the OC by force from an owner, or even force them to claim the OC as theirs, so that's first time i see something like this if you ask me which is BS and make no sense
It's a problem i'm facing currently and i want to do my best to protect it from being abused and stolen (claimed by force)
So in case this happening, if you see someone else claiming it's theirs then do let me know, i would appreciate it
I will explain how i got the OC which was from few years ago, it was owned & created by cherrybunbun from FA (FurAffinity) who i considered a friend (which wasn't a friend sadly in the end) She got bored of him, and give him to another owner, Then after a while, she wanted him back, the owner give the OC to her back, after a little awhile, She offered to sell that OC to me, and i agreed, so i paid for it and adopted him from the money i earned by selling one of my old unused OC's
So technically i own the OC since it ended up to me eventually, he has been with me since years, i may not have used him as much because i don't own an Official actual ref of him yet, which is what i plan to get later
So that's the whole problem here, i've previously was asked by few other people if he is up for sale & of course i refused
Oh yeah and they were accusing me that i begged them to get the OC for me, but i didn't, i bought him by my own self, they just wanna come with excuses and make it seems like i'm the one who is so wrong & they are always right
Any tip from you guys would help me lot, i just don't want to the problem to end worse, because sadly this problem comes from a close friend, you don't have to involve yourself, but any small tip will help me so much, i'm already tired from this crap
I usually avoid posting personal problems, but Since it gone this too far and i'm not sure what to do, i thought i would ask for little help, Thanks for taking your time, it's totally appreciated~
Mentioned OC of Mine: sta.sh/21ybh9iip5c3
I wish things could be resolved so easily, but they are really stubborn to try with them
the important thing here is to know when you've lost, and the person that used to own your character LOST since it sold its own character.
one should only sell its characters if it is willing to let them go for good after all.
To be honest, they sounds more butthurt than trying to claim something :$
well...let's face the facts: you've got the OC in the end. accepting and moving on is a thing that should be done.
the one other way out however could be to make a relatively similar character for him...but not many people accept such things lightly.
and for making similar OC, i think it's bad thing, if people has similar characters by purpose, then the original character has no point, I've been asked to make even a twin of one of my OCs but i refused, it will ruin the point of it exsiting
an OC has its whole different story. so it doesn't stop being an OC so long as it is not one of many copypastes of another character, like those Skeleton "OCs" based on Sans....or those many "OCs" based on Sonic which are basically just recolours.
my twins we're both designed by me & my friend so we both are fine sharing them together because we both designed them
Just my two cents. Sorry for getting lengthy!
Also Cherrybunbun isn't the person who argued about me with this, i didn't mention their name because i'm not a person who causes Dramas in public
The person who tries to argue with me, just trying to claim an OC by force, and that's something i've not seen before, it made no real sense
No hard feelings
I'm sure, it will go well eventually, but i'm just trying to protect my rights for the OC
Thanks for taking time to read, it really does means lot to me~!
The touchy things with paid adopts is that there's no official "you own this" certificate, but if you paid money for him and have owned him for a long time he's rightfully yours. Honestly, what might be a good idea is taking down any photos or descriptions you have of him online, and saving them to your computer, so that people can’t take those and claim them as their OC.
I'm so sad this is happening to you though! Hopefully it will resolve itself over time.
Anyone who is smart enough will know that what i've said is pretty reasonable, and the person who tried to claim by force is actually out of their mind, i would be surprised if i saw similar situation as this though, to be honest this is the first kind of it's type i faced and first that i've seen
its been few years since then, so why they decided to be an ass and bring this again?
they ended up giving them back and someone bought it ( you ).
end of the story.
they just have to shut the fuck up honestly, ignore them and if they keep doing it post a callout for them.
I wish they would do too, i mean yeah the character kept switching owners at that time, but eventually ended up to me
& then i started developing him and made him a Homeless streetboy, troublemaker and what not
I'm surprise you recognized him though, even when i hardly used him xD;
Think it's better for me do as you said, but i will fight back, well i hardly doubt they can do anything though, because they don't have an actual proof to use
just fight for that, they don't have any permission to use them.
The design itself really got me into it, since i rarely have any normal male OC, mostly all just girly lol
Funny enough, they said that, i didn't even spend a penny on them so it's theirs? Having multiple Ocs can be hard, and i can't just get all art for every OC, not to mention i like to sometimes gets some Kemonomimi art, so there is that, i don't need anyone to tell me if i spent penny on certain OC or not, because i will still use them eventually
Btw, before the OC switched owners, he had no name, he was named by me as Derrik when it was with his first owner~!
they do not deserve to have such a cute OC if they didn't even want them in the first place.
Their behaviour is horrible and they shouldn't waste your time.
And thanks Eppao for your support, it means lot Really uwu
Things like this rly sucks
I've never seen something as stupid as this :$
