-> stolen

http://hinderence.deviantart.com/art/Furc-Port-Sex-Fiend-Kira-132400553

i confronted her in public and her excuse was," MarieCrain: hey it was under free port "

i don't need permission for public logs? right?

anyways it's obvious theft, just thought i'd let the public know.

i've noted hinderence already, she'll contact MarieCrain to remove it.

apparently this isn't the first time a hinderence port has been stolen either.

this thread is pretty much resolved since i've notified the artist.

I searched "free port" on dA just now, and a lot of Hinderence's ports come up.
I wonder if she knows that?

Probably not...

Regardless people need to learn to read, her deviations state the buyer's name in it -not... "Free port take this". Even if you're on the search engine. ):

Actually plenty of fantastic portraits pop up when you type in Free Furcadia Portrait, even ones which don't have free anywhere in the title or description.

Maybe one found a port, used it, then another asked where they got it from and wanted one like it, got linked to and browsed Hindy's dA and took it. I never believe these "It said it was free!!!!!" excuses though. Is it really not that obvious when something is free or not? Especially when the ports aren't even in remap colours. But judging from the mess they made of this port, they don't understand remaps.

It's MY port.  She has it under 'Free' because it's a gift to me.  Furc won't do shit about it though, I've already had someone else steal a port from me and they were like 'nyehnyehnyeh'
Fuck this game! It's four in the morning, Grandma, YOU WIN! I'm sitting on Baltic with CRACK! I"m paying Luxory Tax out the ASS! And I hate when you're the banker, where'd you get the pink fifties, you cheating whore! Don't fuckin' touch me Grandpa, NANA, is a cheating WHORE! ):<

I think these  ports come up under "Free" because when people type "not free" into the keywords on their deviations, i'm pretty sure dA doesn't regard that as one keyword thing.

I can see it as being fairly easy to mistake it for a free port, if they don't look into the deviation. Doesn't make it right, or anything.

The title of the ports still show up on the search, as you can see from the first page, a whole lot actually are free and have free in the title, but the further you go, the more non-free ports you see without "free" in the title.

All it takes is to read the titles carefully.
