I've found a jaguar image in a map of a zoo and...the images aren't free to use, right?

Wait, that’s legit, right?

yeah assuming furvilla has copyright protection on all of their assets, which i would assume they do and it looks like thats the case, that is infringement lmao. they didnt even edit it at all

the question though is if its worth doing anything about it. in this case i dont know that it would be. its not like the zoo is making a profit specifically off the image since its just used on a map presumably given for free to attendees, as opposed to having it printed on merchandise or something, which is usually where the issue comes in to play. its not like its taking any business away from furvilla and legal fees are expensive.

... though its really hilarious that they used an anthro leopard on a zoo map. are the rest of the animals anthropomorphic too??

THis is hilarious!
As long as they don’t claim it as a mascot or try to sell in on merch, then I think it’s legal

Not Sorry.

Seriously, though. I worry about that all the time. I'm surprised it hasn't already become a major issue.

As I recall, the images are only free to use in the context of furvilla, as in only for its users, so yes, this is a violation of that. I would send a link to a mod so furvilla can request it be taken down.

You'd think companies would be more careful where they get images from XD I'm not sure if it's illegal, but it is unprofessional imo.
It's honestly ridiculous they care so little.

Also, it's a bit strange to use anthros for a zoo map right? :v

edit: It just looks so out of place lmao. The rest of the map is a goofy kiddie style and then kwiggles beautifully detailed art is just pasted on top

Whoever made that map was probably some person that has no clue how copyright/clipart works and just searched up "cartoon jaguar" in Google images and saw that one and was like "yeah this works!"

They likely aren't making profit off it so it really depends how much the artist / owner of Furvilla cares but that doesn't mean they shouldn't be careful about what they use as "clipart" and be respectful of artist rights.

It's strangely funny they used the Furvilla art though because it looks super out of place.
If you don't like me, then just block me.
I'm not active on the forums anymore anyway.

I dunno who to ping but saw you are online. Thought the staff should take a look at this.

Legality of the copyright aside... would a bunch of cages full of furries count as a jail, or a zoo?

they only allow the use of the paintie bases on furvilla, no other sites unless they stated it somewhere

LuckyClaw here asking the real questions.

Back on topic this is fucking hilarious holy shit but YIKES.

This isn't the first time a furvilla image was used... Another forum pointed out that some video showed 2 of the snakes in it.
19 Nov 2018, 9:54 pm
On Amazon so many times I see merchandise using FV art listed for selling...
And I thought Amazon was at least responsible and also an actual store, not another eBay/Craigslist

Where was this found?

oh wow, this whole situation is hilarious and I'm just gonna stick around to see where it goes

i'm pretty sure it's technically illegal, yes, but probably not anything worth freaking out over?
Grimdorks where did you get the picture? we need answers! XD
