Question

Hello, recently I noticed someone is setting their SL profile picture with the artwork I received by an artist. I took the screenshot and planning to talk to the artist about this later today, but if I additionally report this case, would this case reasonable to report? The artwork is commissioned, and it seemed like that person stole the post where the artist uploaded the artwork. Because that was the only website the artist uploaded the artwork.

report will do nothing. Only a DMCA by the owner of the rights will be accepted.

I assume you mean uploaded from Flickr or another photo site. 

 

I'm not sure why they would put a commissioned work on a site anyone has access to.

Alwin is right. The Lindens will not engage in a copyright issue unless it is a real life legal issue, meaning a DMCA has been filed.

The problem is the Lab has no way to know who is telling the truth. So, it is up to the RL courts.
