If we report all these logos wouldnt thier response be that they must be doing the right thing in removingour ability to use the logos? I think your just pushing them to continue along that road.

 

I personally have never seen an inappropriate logo though I do cringe sometimes seeing somone elses copywrighted work stolen.

Taking an emblem that someone else created and using it is not being creative. But spending time using the creator and coming up with your own designs and ideas is being creative. So they have not taken away your ability to be creative...they have taken away your ability to be LAZY!

 

This is not the best, but it did not take very long and it is almost all my own idea. I did see another and liked his idea, so I copied some of it. But I never said it was creative, even though mine is different style, color, and design. Yes, it is longer than copying and pasting, but that is what makes it creative and yours.

isn't this the QOTD emblem?

 

looks like the colors have been changed, & some poop added.

 

Lol it is, thieving bastard!

 

On topic: Basically what everyone else said, I'm not completely against the SVG thing but claiming it is stifling creativity when you're just stealing company logos is just stupid.

 

And it's probably a mixture of inappropriate content AND copyright issues as to why it's been disallowed.

 

If Rockstar would just improve the editor it wouldn't be as big an issue, the fact that it doesn't even have a text tool is just ridiculous.

It would've been as good as you're invisioning if they didn't give use a creater that produces emblems that, As I stated before, look like 8-Bit pictures.

Taking my emblem and trying to pass your terrible version of it off as anything like your own idea is not creative in the slightest, it pathetic, embarrassing for you and in world where anyone give a sh*t it could even be out and out plagiarism?.

It took me months develop my emblem, I've only just got it how I want it. I even have all the drawing I did when I was designing it. It is very satisfying working at something and seeing ones ideas come fruition and liked and respected by the people you made it for.....you should try it some time

If youre talking about the photo emblem glitch then I wouldn't argue to bring it back. People putting real logos in the game probably bring up copyright issues against R* which is prob one of the reasons they removed it

Imitation and plagiarism are not the same. Slightly changing something then claiming it's your creation is plagiarism.

How is this almost all your own idea?

You didn't copy some of it, you copied all of it and made some minor changes mainly the colors, not very creative is it?

Sorry, but using copyrighted logos as custom emblem isn't creative. Emblem creator is a piece of sh*t, indeed, but you have to understand that you're risking Rockstar by using those graphics.

 

People like me would be disappointed by the lack of image uploader. I'd love to create my own emblem with Adobe Illustrator and upload it as my crew emblem. But what other people will do? Upload copyrighted stuff and nude girls... That's just... not right for Rockstar.

So you lack the basic ability to create your own crew emblem and decided to copy the QotD one into MS Paint and change a few colours? Looks like the ability to be lazy is alive and well.

Ignore the colours and the emblems on the lead skulls head then play a game of spot the difference....

I always thought the patch was due to copyright reasons, and not porn. R* is more likely to get in trouble with copyrighted emblems than with porn emblems. There's a reason why the cars, drinks, etc. are all parodies, and it's not for sh*ts and giggles. If R* allowed people to use copyrighted logos, that would be no different from them using Audi instead of Obey, Sprite instead of Sprunk, etc. They would receive a boatload of lawsuits.

 

No one can use a copyrighted image in their movie, TV show, video game, etc. without proper permission. That's why you may see car badges and drink logos blurred out in TV shows, and that's why R* is cracking down on custom emblems.

 

Also, it's not just logos that are copyrighted. I think images of characters fall under copyrighted content as well. This isn't GTA-related but I remember in one episode of a TV show called Supernanny, they blurred out a Scooby Doo plush toy. I don't know what R* might do with, say Mario or Ninja Turtle emblems.

OP, taking an L means you should take the loss here. Quite whilst you're ahe... Well, just quit. A return of using custom SVG emblems will never happen. No matter how much you plead with R*. I'm amazed at how you can't see that...

Although that does only emphasise my spoilt brat thing. You getting all humpy and making this ridiculously pointless thread... You weren't given the opportunity to have your Coca Cola or Ferrari emblem by R* in the first instance, someone found an exploit, so moaning that you've had this magical, wonderful ability taken away from you and petitioning for it to be given back to you is very much, in probably most people viewing this thread's eyes, spoilt brat behaviour.

Spend the time you're spending on here and appealing to R* toying with the editor and you could recreate them. It's hardly rocket science!

As we are all well too aware, Rockstar have begun their travels down the road to the land of non-creativity that is non-custom-emblem land.

 

I'm here to make sure we make that road as bumpy, broken and impossible to cross as is possible.

Are you retarded or just stupid? You think Rockstar gives a flying shIt what you think or want? THEY DONT. Who the hell are YOU? You're NOBODY to them! You can bitch and moan and throw a tantrum all you want but its not going to change one solitary goddamn thing! All they want is your MONEY and they already have that! Do you honestly think that they are going to risk MASSIVE lawsuits just to make a bunch of teenagers happy?! Keep dreaming!

For me, things like Ferrari logos, Jurrassic Park franchise doesnt and shouldnt exist in GTA world, Those things should have their own, alternative versions, like Sprunk (whch is probably Sprite), etc.

OP, and others if you're concerned with lazy emblems, there is a thread on se7ensins that seems to be a workaround to do it and not have the R* notification saying SVGs aren't allowed etc... Or at least it seems that way from what I just saw.

 

http://www.se7ensins.com/forums/threads/text-and-video-tutorial-how-to-upload-custom-emblems.1138574/

 

Maybe that'll keep you happy for a while.
