You may have noticed that the photos featured beginning in 2013 are now missing the Cosplay Holic logo and URL. Well, I’ve had a change of heart. It’s an uphill battle to try and catch all of the plagiarists of this blog. In fact, I’m beginning to spend more time hunting them down that actually updating the site!
Also, adding the URLs may have deterred some of the copycats, but it hasn’t actually stopped them at all. In the end, it felt like I was breaking my own policy of featuring cosplayers freely because adding my site URL makes it look as if I’m claiming these images as my own.
And so, instead of killing more of my time reporting them to the DMCA, I’ll give them the attention they so desire.
The following blogs have been reported to DMCA for copying articles from Cosplay Holic as well as other cosplay blogs (arranged in alphabetical order):
- http://cosplayholicanimation.blogspot.com *NEW*
- http://www.womanhaircolor.com *NEW*
Thank you all for being so patient and understanding with me! Now that I don’t need to edit most of the photos to add my URL, let’s hope I can get back to double updates during the weekend.
Thank you so much! And may we all have an awesome year ahead!
