I got it. I contacted Sean about it and am just waiting to hear back from him.

As far as who's who on MOCpages, the only ones that should have Moderator or Admin badges are Sean Kenney, Mark Kelso and my self. Thanks for the heads up on this and keep working everyone! We can't do this without you!

Thanks. But even though it's not technically a "MOC", it's not against any copywrite laws or mocpages rules to post lego sets that you built. Thanks for trying though and keep your eyes open for any stolen images! ~ Chris.

I saw that Nannan actually commented on someone's MOC, so I just HAD to look. Sorry Nannan, you are just a man of few words.

At any rate: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/166115

It just looks stolen, the pixelated image, the description and title ...everything. Though I have no clue who it belongs to.

Give it a look.


Screenshot posted! (Whew, I was faster than Chris this time ;-)

Some AFOLs don't get as ruffled at swipes -- still we bust!

Where does Chris post the screen shots? I don't want to put them on my account with my MOCs, so I don't upload. I usually do a screenshot though, then delete it when I see someone else got one posted.

Let me know if there are any other steps I can take.


I think he meant he uploaded the screenshot, before Chris removed the page, not that Chris posts a screenshot...

I'm not sure if this counts or not, but this guy's group: http://www.mocpages.com/group.php/6087 stole the main pic from this guy's MOC: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/91715


This is a very good issue to bring up -- I have noticed many groups on several sites just blatantly use images, which aren't theirs, as Group Icons. I noticed a group on Flickr using the BrickLink logo!

Only if the rightful owner gives permission for their creation image/photo to be used, would this be OK.

Do you think Matt / jaster gave permission for Jack to use his train image?

On a side note: It also seems bizarre when people use other FOLs creations as their ID pics on sites; if I had a dollar for every time I've seen Nathan Sawaya's "Yellow Man" MOC used as an ID picture ...

Good grief; these people need to get with the LEGO spirit & create for themselves!

Don't know what you're talking about with the "writing on the page" and the page visits feature isn't working properly yet. Most people's pages say 0 hits.

Did you ASK Brickforge if you could use it and did they say "yes?" If the answer to these questions is "no", and I'm pretty sure we all know it is, then you have just commited copyright infringment. I'm going to let you delete it on your own but please do so now. Not tomorrow... now. Thank you.

Is swiping also posting a moc that uses INSTRUCTIONS to the moc like the original is black and they remake in a different color to be less suspicous?!?


Although that's not entirely cool, (unless of course the person added the instructions to their moc with the specific intent of people being able to duplicate it, which is usually the case) it's not "swiping" as we put it here. What we're looking for is when say, you make and post a moc, then someone else takes your photos and posts them as their own.

Hey this is a whole folder of swiped MOCs I checked everyone!
Swiper~http://mocpages.com/folder.php/53111
Owner~Lego Island (copied images)


I don't think he's a swiper. He built the models according to the ones in the game himself. He just uses one reference pic at the end. How many people use reference pics that are not their own? Even Mark Kelso does so. So what? Are you going to hunt them down...? Good luck, but I think this group should refocuse on its original purpose.

Yes, this MOC is swiped a lot, mainly due to Google image search; the rightful owner is Andrew Lipson: http://www.andrewlipson.com/escher/relativity.html

Chris can easily remove it from the page you linked, thanks Juan.

Thanks everyone for a busy November ~~~
