I get disillusioned with the Philippines when things like this happens. CHECK IT!
BAYO plagiarized this poor japanese girl's illustrations. TALENTED YOUNG FILIPINA MY ASS! tangina. BAYO had me fooled. I was at at one of their botiques the other other day and was seriously considering on buying those little deer designed shirts of "theirs".. then i find out about this!!
The following are originals by EMMA
and here's what BAYO has been doing to her work.
profiting from another person's intellectual property without their consent is just horrible! GRRRRR!! I want to kill that dude who runs BAYO now! T.T nakakahiya. What a stupid thing to do..
a big sigh for all of us.
This could happen to all of us here if we're not careful. Please be careful.. -__- Intellectual property is a big problem in our industry. Even if piracy is prominent this days, i can not believe a company as popular and legitimate as BAYO would do such a thing. For how long have they've been doing this?
I pity Emma because BAYO refuses to apologize to her. She's having a hard time speaking english too. I asked my brother to tell my sister-in law to help her since she can speak fluent japanese and english. I can just imagine the feeling of helplesness she's going through right now.
I say let's burn BAYO down. XP
EDIT: Please email BAYO now: http://www.bayo.com.ph/contact.php . Let them know we know what they're doing.
