Nicky is trying to claim copyright on a simple collage of other people's copyrighted work (the pictures he built the backdrops out of) ..??
Bah.. sorry, but he can blow me.
1. By putting his "work" into a public domain file, they became public domain. There is no "undo" .. no license, no basis to revoke that usage. You can't stuff the shit back up the horse's ass, sorry.
2. He has no case.. any court in the land would laugh him right out of the building. Trying to claim ownership of someone else's images is ludicrous.
I certainly won't use any of his stuff in the future, but damned if I make ANY extra effort to remove his shit from existing files or anything. What a cocky little runt, expecting hundreds of people to edit his shit outta dozens of files just cuz he wants to OH NO QUIT DA SKENE!!!1
