  • Anyone else?

    Anyone get emails or requests all the time for their style?? I get this daily, but the thing is its always from Arabic people...

    Do arabs not have laws for copywritten layouts? Alot of the rips I see are arabic.(No this is not racist, Im seriously confused by this).

    They always ask for my style, but the impression I get is that they don't even think that its not free. Its like they honestly think theres no reason not to give it to them...

    Here is an email I just got from "ahmad aloufi":

    "Hi

    Please I want your style

    Thank you"

    I mean, hes polite.

      i have never had a request for my OS X style. i'm kind of surprised no one has ripped it yet (so is sinecure, he made the style).

        Do you want to judge arab people in general by emails from some, that confuses me

        Only email I got once in a while was this here:

        Liam B.
        Hello, I too run a vBulletin forum and I am trying to make it have a Windows XP feel to it.

        The graphics on your forum are really nice and I was wondering if you would be able to let me have them, or give me the link so that I may download them for myself.

        Regards

        Liam

                      Tell him what kind of clothes you wear and the type of hairdo you have.

                        I get requests for one or more of my styles at least once per week, though never from any Arabs as far as I can tell.

                          I guess my first post wasn't clear enough. What I wanted to know is do they not have the same laws we have about copywritten designs and such? Because out of all the requests I get from them lately, not one has seemed as if they didn't think it wasn't free. And thats what intrigues me. They're aren't being jerks and stealing my stuff, they all email me for it. It's weird I think.

                            No. Other coutries copyright laws if they even have them are not like the US nor are they enforced the same way as the US. In fact, if you go to patent an item, you have to get an overseas patent if you want to hold rights in other countries. My dad just sent off for a patent through a patent lawyer and this is what they told him. The only way you can inforce a US copyright is to sell within the US.

                              What in the email:

                              "Hi

                              Please I want your style

                              Thank you"

                              makes you think they wanted it for free? Did you ask? Not a very good way to gain business by taking the way someone asks you for your work and displaying it on a public forum because they didn't use the exact words you thought you should hear.

                              Again, what in that email makes you think they wanted it for free? Sounds like you're making assumptions about a group unfairly.

                              You really need to grow up and stop crying, as I've seen suggested to you numerous times as of late.

                              And, did you really need to be told that laws in other countries are different than ours? Come on. Don't be an idiot.
