Panda – the program module for licensed files protection

You probably already got acquainted with our Justice Panda and hopefully understood the concept of our service, which is: everyone gets what they deserve no matter who they are. To deal with illegal sharing of PFD files we came up with a special program module "Panda". This module helps to find automatically where PFD files are uploaded/downloaded illegally and who owned them before it started.

 

All files you download from your account have the five-tier labeling system with your personal details being used, and those labels do not disappear no matter how much you edit the picture when creating a tag. All the formats we are using are protected that way, and even after the file has been converted to PSP format, some of the labels are still there.

Daily search for files like that and their automatic checking will help us find with 100% certainty anyone using licensed images form PicsForDesign illegally.

Any mistakes are excluded, since all files are labeled when you first download them from your account. The system just shapes the archive all over again, marking different files with five various protection labels containing your personal identification data. This data can be read exclusively with the help of software developed by the Pix Technologies s.r.o., and the results obtained are compared to your history of purchases, after which the system sends you a warning to the e-mail. If the license conditions are violated again, the account status changes to 'blocked' and you lose access to all the images you purchased.

PFD also reserves the right to block any accounts that we think appeared to substitute the account blocked.

If you would like to speed up the process of searching for PFD files being distributed illegally, you can send the archives and links you came across to the e-mail address panda@picsfordesign.com

How to avoid your account being blocked:

1) Do not pass access to your account to any third parties to prevent other people from downloading the files you purchased

2) Do not upload the files you purchased on file sharing websites or forums, making them available for downloading

3) Do not pass the files you purchased to any third parties in person or via the Internet.

Please respect our effort and all the hard work our artists put into their images, and we will be sure to make you happy by offering high level of service, convenient software that will facilitate your shopping and creative work, numerous and always exceptionally gorgeous pictures, prizes and plenty of other enjoyable stuff.

1) PFD is a company with fair policies open to the opinions of people and before taking any action conducts a poll. Based on the recent poll we decided not to publish the list of violators and not pass it to other companies or anybody else.

2) We consulted our lawyer and obtained his official assurance that we are not violating anyone's rights. Neither are we invading anyone's privacy.

Let me clarify:
- you are purchasing a commercial NONexclusive product, which gives the company a right to make sure the conditions of license use for this product are carefully observed.
- To ensure that, we use tags such as the client's account ID with PFD, not their passport information or name, so it has nothing to do with privacy violation. This is our website, our accounts and our IDs given to our customers.
- You have seen the rules and have read the terms of license use, accepting them when registering. It's our right to protect our rights and our property according to that agreement we entered into.
- We are a European company. If you are going to quote the law, at least quote the law of the Czech Republic, because this is the country whose jurisdiction we work under. Here the copyright violation laws are VERY strict.
- IMPORTANT! We are NOT going after anyone, we are just protecting our product. All we are going to do is send warnings and block the accounts of malicious violators. There will be no watching and no going after. We love our job and we are not going to make a huge deal out of license violation cases.

3) We are disabling comments for this particular topic.

4) Panda script will keep functioning, fighting illegal distribution of copyrighted images.

Thank you to everyone who supported the idea.

Guys, we keep working just the way we used to. Everything is okay. No one is watching you, we are just looking into violations. It was the thieves who caused the stir. They probably got scared, because this is not just some correspondence and forwarded letters, this is 100% detection software to find the violators. YOU CANNOT SEE ANY WATERMARKS on the tags, do not worry! And NO ONE WILL EVER PUBLISH YOUR PRIVATE INFORMATION ANYWHERE. PFD's work is transparent and open, and we have plenty of modules like that to make the life of artists and HONEST customers easier.

Stay with us, do not react to any provocations of this kind and you will be rewarded generously!

Hello. Let me comment on your deed.
1. You express your opinion. But who are you? Anonymous! Why are you hiding? Are you human? You proudly wear your name. Why do not you want to talk face to face? Please tell me himself. This simple rule of propriety. Thank you.
2. You write in CAPS LOCK. I understand you want to show your indignation, hiding your identity. But why do you think that your opinion is more important to other people?
3. If I do not steal, and buy the product, I want to know that nobody else gets it for free. For me, it's important. I spend my money. I paid them seriously. And someone just steals. And I am very pleased that the team PFD and others to protect my rights. It's honest. Do you think that protecting your rights - it is a violation of your rights.
4. I want you to think about what's on:
PFD and the rest of the team shops absolutely all the same, where the man lay out his tags or avatars. This is interesting only for artists. Because we like to see what tags you are doing. How can we hurt you? You do tag, expose it to the internet to show us, show it to your friends, and we look and happy, but how do we harm?
But if you steal, then we will know about it. And there will be consequences.
When you talk about rights, think about the artists who paint for you. Think about the entire team that is working on it.
When a thief steals, he steals out of my pocket. He takes medication for my brother's disability, he takes food from my family. We are in no way harm you. And if you love and respect those who make the psp tubes - artists and shops, you allow this script to see where are your tags. Because the only way to catch cheaters and thieves. This will help us all. And the honest buyers and the artists and the entire team.
Therefore, I urge you to think. Do not shout. Just think about it.
Sorry for bad English.

I remember a certain idiot in the fontography industry who decided to publicly display the name of an alleged sharer. This idiot was subsequently sued and had to settle out of court. The charges were slander and invasion of privacy. Just because a watermarked file gets distributed does not prove that the originator intended to share it, or did in fact share it. Even the Pentagon's computers with a $1 billion firewall get hacked into regularly. If you publish these names I guarantee you your company will suffer greatly for it.

it is a great idea but if you will always find people who are willing to share the tubes they bought without a problem and they don't care about the consequences of what could happen if they are found out. It is a great idea
