I was reading this thread, and looknig at the dates. Since it has been several days since it was found and complaints were sent to Freewebs, I expected it to already be down. Since it is not, I have also sent a complaint in.

Wow! That was just odd! Just curious, how exactly did you find it P.I.?

And if it wasn't with LEGO, I wonder what he was trying to do to Sava's story?

Yuk... this one leaves a bad taste in the mouth~

Sadly alot of things like this are stolen without the creator being aware of such theft.

I was wondering is Tony ever made a freewebs site about Ikros, and I found this. This seemed a bit wierd, and I did not think Tony wrote it. Then is said Copywrite 04. Thats when I knew it was stolen.

Imitation is the highest form of flattery, yes. I take great pride when I see someone write a LEGO story and say they saw mine and decided to follow suit. But there is a distinct difference between imitation and plagarism.

yeah big differance is whether credit was given or credit was taken,i've seen alot of my creations and designs out there in BS and other places with some credit given but alot of it is credit taken.

usually when i post pics with something from someone i give them the credit for the item,unless its like an army made with obvious BrickForge Items then well what can i say credit is not needed,they are awesome creators and their product is very well known.

I think I was misunderstood as I was just trying to make light of a rather crappy situation :oops: I would be ropeable if someone had blatantly copied my work and passed it off as thier own especially after all the years of thought you've put into Ikros. My bad
