What Fairyland did was stupid and wrong, I do not condone it one bit and I am very disappointed with their actions. However anyone who claims that the recasters are some how “better” because they at least “credit the original artists” can go and fuck themselves. Seriously what the fuck? What is wrong with you people?
FL’s actions do NOT make recasting okay. If you want to boycott the company because of their actions sure, I can understand that. If people boycott FL because of this, then they do only have themselves to blame. However if you then go and support the recasters you are a fucking hypocrite. Two wrongs don’t make a right.
Plus by going to the recasters you are making other companies and artists suffer, since the recasters have no shame to whose work they steal. They have proven this more than once. So no, it is not okay in any shape or form to buy a recast because of this.
Yes to all of this. I am very disappointed in Fairyland and hope that they will try to resolve this. The other thing is that I’m laughing my ass of at how the pro-recast people are saying Fairyland is a hypocrite. What the actual fuck?
I am very disappointed with them, and unless they put things right they will not be getting further business from me. I will admit though, FL don’t have much room to tell people not to steal other people’s work at the moment, since that is what they have been caught doing. However it is bad that the pro-recast people are trying to claim that FL’s bad choice justifies their bad choice.
However that said, people have pointed out that FL consists of a few artists and it is possible as a company they didn’t know that the design was a stolen design. It is pretty obvious the artist who did the designs did know, however the others might not have had an idea until now. So I really do hope that FL will sort this out, they will need to make a statement soon.
