Remember this guy from last time?
He had a website full of stolen artwork from Sijun people..Guess what..He's at it again:

web page

Craig Mullins, Joachim, Saffron, me and other people..Some of the art has been changed by Mr.Pichinoty..and credited to him.

Use the scrolldown window to get to other pages..

I think it's more serious this time since he's actually making money on this..

-Mike

Well i guess he never learns..

I wrote to M4de about it and he mentioned that Pichinoty wrote him and asked him to erase all the content about him on his site, beacause some employers kicked him out after a short research on google / forums....Booyah!

I'm not sure what's more criminal. Stealing the artwork... or the dreadful, pull-down web navigation he's implemented.

Hope someone keeps tabs on this rip-off merchant.

I think all of us digital artists out there on the web should have a "black list" section on our sites. That guy Pisshitty would be the star, that's for sure.
I'm glad he sent that e-mail to M4de then, he digs his own grave.

I wish I felt comfortable claiming other people's art as my own. My portfolio would seriously rock...

What an idiot...

Heh, I wish my art was good enough for someone to want to steal.

But seriously though, imagine as best you can just for a moment, that you have a portfolio full of other peoples work and you are about to show it off to someone as your own. That feeling of horror, shame and sickness that you feel of suddenly putting yourself in that situation... Isn't it mind boggling that someone would willingly try to do that? More then once?!

People. I don't get them sometimes.

I've e-mail the guy a nice little e-mail. I don't think that site is his, has anyone told the person who owns it that the art on his site is ripped? Is there anyway to prosecute this guy?

If I were you I would seriously do something about this. The only way this punk will learn is if you scare him. Best way to do that is write a legal letter to him. Let him know that if all art isn't removed in 48hours, a lawsuit will be filled and court action will be taken.

I he doesn't do it, I would seriously think about taking him to court.

Good luck

viva cut and paste

I highly doubt the music group "La Bestia" or the busyness that made their website are aware of this fraud.

Hmm I know a few ppl in Montpellier... hmmm.......... *rubs hands* Hmm.... *rubs chin thoughfully* hmmmmmmmmm...... :>

Dom : The thing is, I don'T know how international law works in order to prossecute someone from another country on copyright laws. I'm really curious to know the ropes about it all. Hmmm where's a lawyer when you need one.

P.S.: good gawd news go fast.

email the band or whatever they are about the fraud (in french?), and then email john pichinity and tell him that you are going to kill him and torture him and eat him and that you are watching him at all times waiting to pounce....if you do it well enough..hes likely to be a little bit disturbed!

Here's the response I got back from him... It was sent to a number of people and I was on the list... Not very convincing...
===================
quote:
Hello,

I'm terribly sorry for that... I already received a lot of emails for the things i made... even if my apologies won't be enough to reassure, i do apology... i made a huge mistake doing that, i know it... please excuse me, or try...
for this band the fact is the man who did the website lost completely the ftp codes to remove the site... the band has closed, they don't exist any more... moreover, i have to say that i didn't receive any money for the pictures i used ; you probably don't care, but i really i have to say that i didn't do that to make you problems, i thought i could use it to help someone. I know it's not "help", but it has to be only for a short time... now the site is open, people can see that, and i assure you that in a few weeks, the site will automatically close...
Again, i know i made a stupid thing, i won't ever do such a thing...
But you have to know something, when people discovered my website, with your pictures, the website of www.labestia.org was already made...
When people warned me not to do that again, i didn't, so please again excuse me.... i will never start again that....
A last thing, i wanted to tell you...
I know my name appears in some forums, and i really try to start again my professionnal life, not by stealing art from others, but with my creation, nothing else... i try but if my name appears everywhere like that, i won't be able to work... please, i don't know what to say now, or that i know that it's really tough for you to see your art stolen... something of your mind that you wanted to share to others...
I won't do that again, i "promise" (it's not a bad joke)... but please help to start again my life by deleting the posts concerning me, if you mind.... i'm terribly sorry, terribly, but i really want to have another chance...

Hope you will hear me, and i wait for your answers...
Jean

I think he's trying to say that Jean Pichinoty is a thief.
Don't quote me on that though, as I sort of took a bit of artistic liberty with my interpretation.

Seriously though, this sucks!
Sue him and whomever hired him for all they've got, I say.
Well, provided you have the funds to do so. Otherwise, getting him banned from the internet could do as a minor compensation, I suppose.

I think Bang was trying to tell us he wanted a quarter pounder from McDonald's. Am I right, Bang?

If it were me that were the victim here I would be chasing up my legal options asap. There are principals here, and if you don't have them then what's the point? He's claiming he never received payment for the images he used.. but why believe that when he's lied about the ownership of the work?

Copyright laws are there to protect people like you, you should make the time to take this further. At the very least, you should try to get that site and it's content taken down.

Ahh didn't know that was not his website. As to what he says. If he lost the ftp info. I would know email the service provider at which the site is hosted. Kindly asking them to remove it. They are hosting stolen content, so in part they are responsible for it as well. If you have one english speaking person in that business I am sure the site will go down in a matter of minutes. Send them the guys reply as well.
