ew's CB has been so inventive to create a poster of Susan as the statue of liberty.

This is straight plagiarism from DJG's work of more than a year ago, and of the banner of this forum...

Yes, some animals are more equal, and have always been... Suspect Suspect Suspect

That is plain outrageous!!! But then CB has never been known for his originality or creativity, I guess!!!

I actually did that some 2 years ago. It first appeared on our site banner in January 2010, and has done so on all banners since that date. I have all original artwork, development files, etc. to prove that.

FYI, the SusaHumor liberty graphic was first released on 22 November 2009, thus:



I've not seen the ripped off version of this, but it would seem that CB is up to his usual tricks again. He's also claimed to have created many animated GIFs, which I know for a fact aren't his work at all.

It should also be noted that this original graphic was also turned into a small video clip that was uploaded to the SusaHumor YouTube channel on 23 January 2010, which can be verified by YouTube, thus:

For CB to copy the work of DJG is very embarrassing. I am flabbergasted over this Shocked

DJG, are you inclined to pursue this in any fashion, RE cease and desist?

Quite possibly so. We have been using the graphic since the early days of the forum, and we have become connected with that graphic. Ripping off the concept, if not the actual graphic itself, isn't acceptable.

Experience tells us that their Admin's attitude to copyright is basically 'just rip it off because the copyright owner probably doesn't have the money to sue'. They've said that many times.

I'm starting to think that the Admin has requested this, knowing full well that the Susan as the statue of liberty graphic is one that we use to represent the SusaHumor forum, and have done so since the start. By ripping this off, they will be able to convince the naive loonies there that we have ripped his graphic off. Of course, I'm not as stupid as they like to believe and I am able to prove the dates when I produced the SusaHumor version of this graphic. It's just part of their ongoing plan to try to close us down, which they attempt almost daily.
