Has Irkos Been Stolen....?

Postby Prince Imdol » Mon Sep 24, 2007 12:26 am

I am wondering if this site
http://www.freewebs.com/ikros is one of Anthony's sites, or a stealer. Ulmarads name is now Harris, and they changed some names, but you can tell it is either Sava's site, or somebody else who stole Irkos.
I think this is most likely a site made by Anthony, but if so, why would he change all of the names. Was this an older site?

It does seem rather odd, but I'm not making a judgment until Anthony tells us what's up.

I must say, some of the illustrations are quite nice.

I am guessing Anthony made it a while ago, and changed some of the names deeper into the story.

My guess: It is a copy. On the bottoms of the pages, it is dated 2006. Most of the pages on Anthony's site were dated 2002ish.

I agree, and if the guy copywrited this, isn't that illegal. Anthony copywrited it a long time ago. So this guy could be fined, right?

This is not my website, and I'd appreciate any help from the community to get it taken offline.

I'd send him an email, but there are no contact details on the page. Looks like he made it, then abandoned it.
This has nothing to do with lego or castle

Well there is certainly nothing "Helpful, Peaceful, Respectful" about that is there?

I think he was refering to Ikros, which would be true, unless you were one of the council.

I will see if I can contact Freewebs.com. I would know how I felt if my story was stolen, so I will try to help as much as possible.

There's a contact form for Freewebs that is for reporting abuses to their TOS including, but not limited to, copyright violations. I sent in a report last night but I encourage anyone who wishes to do so to do the same.

People think they can get away with these type things, but sooner or later, somebody is bound to find out about it.

I just hope he/she/it hasn't tried this with other LEGO fan sites. I guess this whatever didn't realize that our community tries to protect our own.
I hope we don't see this "it" again. LEGO is too good for it.

This is terrible! I don't know how anyone could think that they could get away with something like this.

I noticed that this doesn't seem to be Lego at all, and over half the pages aren't finished. If this was started in 2006, I think that whoever it is is not going to complete it.

I got on freewebs and filled out their complaint form too. So I guess we just wait and see what happens.
