How to "steal" someone's "personal" icon

Hop into a time machine to two years ago.

Go to Paul Kidby's old website, the one with the black background with all the stars.

Find the badge collection.

Copy the picture of Greebo.

Reformat it to 100x100 pixels.

Upload it to your livejournal.

It's okay - I'll wait....




Okay - now use that icon sporatically for two years. Then, after posting in an open community, get accused of stealing said icon.

Because, you know, copying and pasting is something only one person can do, something that is OBVIOUSLY TRADEMARKED by that person, and no one has ever, ever thought about doing it besides that person.

OMG I AM SUCH A THEIF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jesus people, get a life and don't go running around accusing people of stealing your shit when you did nothing to make it original yourself. IN fact, we are BOTH stealing someone else's stuff.

Maybe you've just had a rough day and really aren't this over reactive. But please, try to keep your wank in your own yard, okay? I don't like it shitting on my lawn.
