C&H almost had a suit against FJ or something a while back. It's never a good idea to post C&H or Oatmeal content on FJ.
#9 to #4 - kunnyfunj (12/04/2012) [-]
how long ago was this? i was around for the oatmeal thing and since think i recall seeing c&h posts on a semi regular basis, along with mountains of other copyrighted **** .
#26 to #9 - lujan (12/04/2012) [-]
yeah, many people still post copyrighted comics and stuff and they usually get thumbed down to hell with comments from people telling them they cannot post those, and then the generally get banned for a couple days because someone reports it.
#27 to #26 - kunnyfunj (12/05/2012) [-]
i guess it just depends on who's around.
far as i can tell i only got 2 comments on the content and then i was banned. i couldnt even read the comments because they removed the post.

lol i dont mean to be a dick, but have you seen this site before? right now, on the front page, is a pic of spongebob and patrick, courage the cowardly dog, pokemon, far cry 3, and the simpsons.
that's just at a glance.
i'm just venting because im pissed that i didnt even get warned. just flat out bam.
User avatar #11 to #6 - Sambenmaggie (12/04/2012) [-]
Hey, I didn't say it was fair. I just said why you got banned. Everyone does it, but that is still the reason you got banned. Every once in a while someone complains or reports something, so addy dishes out a ban. Plain and simple.

hey i just downloaded this movie from the internet but it's totally cool cuz i acknowledge the money and hard work that went in to making it

so you see, your honor, i shouldnt have to pay this fine even though i was warned
#5 to #2 - kunnyfunj (12/04/2012) [-]
yes your sarcasm is appreciated and i'm sure everyone got a nice smirk out of it, but could you either focus on the subject at hand or go find a more deserving uploader to harass?
i see screenshots and subtitled stills from shows, anime and video games here on a daily basis. so how the **** was i supposed to know the one thing that could get me banned for 72 hours, not 1 day, not warned or anything reasonable, out of all the other copyrighted uploads and webcomic posts would be a super relevant cyanide and happiness post?
User avatar #8 to #5 - pebar (12/04/2012) [-]
All that stuff is copyrighted; it's just not always enforced. Some people are really bitchy about copyright like FOX and C&H. So for the same reason that you can't even upload a 5 second clip of Family Guy to youtube, you can't post a C&H comic on FJ.
#10 to #8 - kunnyfunj (12/04/2012) [-]
what an absolute crock of **** .
they spam my inbox on a daily basis about retarded item crafting and other stupid events, they put up annoying green banners across the top of the page about ******* , but when it comes to some **** that could **** your account i dont here a damn thing about it? just poof. lol logic. thanks for the info though, i'll keep that in mind

"This OP says when something happens to him that he never says when it happens to someone else."
#14 to #13 - kunnyfunj (12/04/2012) [-]
had a hell of a time reading that sentence. youre probably the asshole who thumbed down everyone of my comments like i said something rude.
it's all good.
implying that i've read about this happening to other people and decided to stay quiet.
cause ya know, that would make sense with the whole me being bewildered about my banned account.

any other piss poor, weak **** , sarcastic much assholes wanna contribute?
User avatar #15 to #14 - kanatana (12/04/2012) [-]
No, I wasn't the one who thumbed it all down, you have my word. Also, it was a typo, I meant "Things OP says when something happen to him that he never says when it happens to someone else."

Essentially, unless you've never heard of someone getting banned for posting copyrighted content, unless there's a record of you protesting against the owners of this site for doing so to other members, it's somewhat ridiculous for you to be all up in a tizzy now.
#16 to #15 - kunnyfunj (12/04/2012) [-]
well thats the thing as i mentioned in a few of my other replies on this subject
no i havent seen anyone getting banned for copyright content
yes there's literally a **** ton of other copyrighted **** on the front page right now from more powerful people
and i would in fact have a bitch fit if i heard about some retarded ******** happening to anyone else because this site is almost entirely made out of copyrighted content.

I'm sorry, I thought it would be clear to you, though your atrocious grammar would indicate that I was wrong. No, what I meant was, I am currently trying to quantify a numerical equivalent of a " **** ton" at the moment; while the computers are doing their job, I'm going through front page as it stands now and finding the " **** ton" of true copyright infringement going on there.

As it turns out, though, there are a few things that you probably currently do not realize about copyright law. If a copyrighted work is modified for use in a parody, then generally, whoever modified it is exempt from prosecution-- this being "Funny Junk", a comedy website, at least in spirit, nearly every practical instance of content on here is protected under that law. Also, in two or three instances of potential copyright infringement, they have claimed no credit for themselves, and given it due to the creator/owner of said content, Dorkly being one of those said copyright holders.

I count... one. One blatant, name-erased, non-credit giving post on front page.

Is that a "crap ton" to you?

sigh
Well, I hope you can excuse my lack of wanting to use "proper" grammar and punctuation given my current mood. Though your effort isn't going unrecognized, I fail to see the point that you're trying to prove by hunting down all the copyright infringements. I assure you my particular incident was no better or worse than than any of the content you'll find right now. As a matter of fact I even linked to their site.

I fully understand being exempt for the sake of parody, but does that also cover subtitling still frames from television shows? I feel like somehow the point I've been trying to make is getting twisted and despite getting the proverbial, " **** end of the stick" I'm still coming out the bad guy/asshole for being upset and bewildered over a sudden banning of my account on the grounds of copyright infringement. As if it isn't happening practically everywhere on this site to begin with.
User avatar #22 to #21 - kanatana (12/04/2012) [-]
No, you are not coming out as the bad guy. You didn't break the rules any more or less that a lot of the rest of us. You are the one kid in elementary school who got caught with his Game Boy under the desk, even though Evan on the other side of the room has his out, but he wasn't the one who got noticed. Dude, grow up. I swear, I'm not trying to be mean or anything, but you're acting like you were singled out. You weren't. You were just the one that got caught posting something that was pretty explicitly instructed that the Terms and Conditions of this web site told you wasn't allowed.

TL;DR Get off your cross, build a bridge with it, and GET OVER IT.

I'm not trying to be a martyr for some cause no one cares about. It was my intention to find out why and sense when was copyright infringement bans being excercised on C&H content. I got some replies, some good and some bad. I took the opportunity to reply in kind and vent as well, like normal people do when in the process of "getting over things". Frankly I haven't even protested that I was innocent, this whole issue has been about the "why" and not the "why me" or "woe is me". I believe I actually flat out stated that I've done worse. So instead of me being the kid who got caught with his gameboy (If I may borrow your example), I'm the kid who got caught with a gameboy who's wondering how he got away with ******** on his desk.

It seems we can't or wont agree though. It appears you want to paint me in the light of a butthurt, immature kid, who want's to drag everyone else down with him. While I merely want a logical explanation and maybe some consoling from like minded people.
User avatar #24 to #23 - kanatana (12/04/2012) [-]
I don't necessarily want to paint you as anything. All I'm saying is, there is a real gamble when you post copyrighted content. kim jong has full discretion on bans; I guess he was in a bad mood today, and you just happened to be in his way this time. I've heard of people being banned for more and less, so it's honestly not surprising.

Just to be on the safe side? Before you post anything that you didn't create again, check to make sure it's worth this hassle another time around.
#25 to #24 - kunnyfunj (12/04/2012) [-]
I kind of hate to say it, but I don't intend to actually alter my posting habits at all. I just wont post from C&H since i lack the skill and means to create my own "OC". I forgot the moderators and kim jong tend to get ban happy for x reason.
C'est la vie
I mean... haters gonna hate.
User avatar #3 - ednakrababbal (12/04/2012) [-]
well first guess would be copyright issues, but people post so much stolen stuff so yeah,...
#7 to #3 - kunnyfunj (12/04/2012) [-]
i agree, it literally boggles my mind. i wish i could get a straight answer
#17 - kunnyfunj (12/04/2012) [-]
what the hell at whoever thumbed like every one of my comments down, like i was going around being an asshole and saying nonsensical ******** .
