  1. Despite the pacing issues, I am genuinely excited for Issue #50 and to see where this goes.

    Figured this was the best place to post this. Linkara recently reviewed the Tangle and Whisper mini-series, and gave it a positive review!

    There's no legal shit here. The game dev doesn't even remotely have a case. They're making a fool of themselves.

    I hope IDW legal team is more competent than Archie's.



    Yes, I'm joking :V

    Honestly, why was this even posted? A cursory scroll down the account's media tab shows that the character looks nothing like Belle and clearly someone just wants a bit of easy publicity. Stop feeding the trolls.

    Yes. It's amusing, but nothing to see here and not worth feeding in to. :doge:

    The only thing interesting to me is they're actually trying to issue DMCAs (and if I'm reading right, succeeded in a few, if only because of Twitters automated system and incompetency). If it's a troll, it's a very dedicated troll.

    Can you provide a screenshot, please? The artist has me blocked, for reasons that have always baffled me as, to my knowledge, we have never interacted.

    Yet, when you actually compare the actual designs, without him having added the Belle hair:

    ...they look nothing alike. Even if I was squinting 100 miles away, I'd still see they're nothing alike.

    "Flexible? What a coincidence!"
    She's made of *wood*. She is not flexible.

    Basically, they're trying to force a comparison to match.

    Only thing I'll say about the whole BoingKid situation that it's very annoying when stupid people are extremely confident in their own, made up narratives... Which is ironic as I part take in the Sonic Fandom, lol.

    However, if he was actually serious, he would be filling a lawsuit against IDW, not sending takedown notices against random art on twitter. Either he's moronic or just wants the attention, which I feel is the latter.

    The best thing we can do right now is ignore him and perhaps report his account, since he is abusing the copyright system.

    So if I'm following this correctly this person said they contacted IDW about them helping distributing 2 Boingkid comic issues in 2019, didn't receive an answer, and this interaction led to IDW stealing the concept and used it for Belle?

    It's going to sound mean, I totally get the feeling of creating something, it could be whatever, and wanting that thing to get a big recognition and praise.

    But a lot of these controversies strike me as sort of a "bitter blowback" if you will in the sense that sometimes those creations don't succeed as much as we want to, so those feelings start to cloud your judgment and might make you lash out.

    And this could apply to many other scenarios, like not succeeding in a career etc etc.

    Have companies unfortunately have taken pitches, ignore or deny them, and then used it to create their own things? Yes.

    Is it likely this happened with Belle? I would say no.

    And if this person really thinks that happened then he should go after IDW legally instead of abusing the takedown notice against artists and fans.

    People have been feeling this way without any real base to it for years. Just ask J. Michael Straczynski, creator of Babylon 5, what he thinks about Star Trek: Deep Space 9...
