This is a serious violation. It's not just using someone's idea and to be inspired by someone...

by the way, i'm just too curious about the logo contest ONEDAY AVATAR.. Ch already choose a winner and i got bronze medal on that contest, but then weeks or more the contest was re-opened and our design is gone.. anyone knows what really happened to that contest?

I suggest if it happens that someone wins with a clipart/stockimage and the CH wants to use it - the cheater to get not only infraction but to receive only 50% of the price money. Other 50% can go to DC for the troubles he makes to the admins and CH. Or go to the 2nd and 3rd one for the unfair advantage he has.
If someone wins with a concept copy he shares price with a concept owner. Its kind of similar situation.
I believe knowing that they will receive only 50% of the money if win and caught, will reduce the copiers

Before submit the design in logo contest, there should be (add) a declaration questionaire whether it contains a clip art or not ( if the answer is "yes",
don't allow it to be submitted, if the answer is "no", release it to be submitted ). If still get caught, permanent ban. Savina's proposal regarding the prize money is good too for consideration.

savina I told you that black pearl contest was taken care of and that should be the end of it! You keep going on and on and now have moved to another thread. The ch is buying the rights to that clipart, this is the choice of the contestholder, contestholder was aware early on when the designer submitted this. I gave the designer 50 point infraction for submitting the clipart and contacted the ch about it. Ch wanted that art and is buying it
designcontest should not have to explain this information, when we say it has been taken care of then that should be it
You know clipart is not allowed in logo contests but if the ch wants that then we have no choice, this is a rare exception and I told you this.
stolen logo, stolen design and I'm talking an outright stolen design means the designer is on a never lift ban
clipart depending on the degree of clipart used can be 25-50 point infractions, this includes altered clipart
90 infraction points = a 6 month ban
repeated then the designer is on a never lift ban
