So, if you have read MiyajiYukki
's journal, you will know what "cover" is. But if you haven't, let me explain again.
"Cover", in music is siging again a song of an artist
But in Vietnam, it means "tracing", like some of you know.
After uploaded her journal on dA, MiyajiYukki
posted a same version on her Facebook account. And this is one of a "cover artist" reaction (English translation below picture)
When you see Vietnamese coverers draw pictures and they say that it was cover, and credit to the original artist (if it had), those people don't know how to say and use "weapons" like report, making war, capture the screen (only the war) as a proof! Finally bring it on dA!
And then, they were success in mortifying Vietnamese artist with the sentence: "Cover is bad, and the coverers make money from selling their covered picture don't respect the original artists!"
Ok, such nice words! And your English too! Because foreigners didn't understand what you said so they talked bad about Vietnamese coverers!
And why did you deleted your journal on dA?
((MY POINT OF VIEW))
- First of all, Miyaji deleted her journal to make the people who commented below it to be safe
- Second, "cover" as I said before, is "tracing" . In Vietnam, they don't pay attention much to license, so it isn't a problem when you trace an artist's artwork. But with foreigners, you will have trouble when you trace an artwork right?
- Although they credit to the original artist, but they don't have the arrtist's permission to do it, right?
And to be clear, there's a law about this:
Copyright infringement is the use of works protected by copyright law without permission, infringing certain exclusive rights granted to the copyright holder, such as the right to reproduce, distribute, display or perform the protected work, or to make derivative works. The copyright holder is typically the work's creator, or a publisher or other business to whom copyright has been assigned. Copyright holders routinely invoke legal and technological measures to prevent and penalize copyright infringement. (Wikipedia)
That's just my personal opinion, and I'm so confused that Vietnamese "coverers" keep doing that.
I need your opinion about this, please
