This is yours, is it? --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 11:10, 18 June 2015 (UTC)

Yes it is. Unsigned comment by Woolly Mammoth (talk • contribs).
Thanks. How would you explain the fact I found many matching examples of this image online? --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 11:30, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
Because I used this image as an inspiration for what I'm about to do. Besides, I was drunk. Woolly Mammoth 11:39, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
So you now admit that you've infringed someone else's copyright - again? --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 11:40, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
Copyright of whom? This is just a photo that I'm about to edit. Woolly Mammoth 11:43, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
The Internet is not some free-for-all where you can just take whatever you want without attribution; unless explicitly released with a licence allowing you to share/amend then you are infringing someone else's copyright. You can't edit images on Tolkien Gateway so why have you uploaded it?
You can regard this as "Strike Two". Twice I have caught you uploading copyrighted images; both times you denied it until I provided proof. Tomorrow I will go through and check every single one of your images. Between now and then I suggest you confess to any other images you have taken from elsewhere without permission and "edited"; should I find any image that I believe infringes copyright then I will take further action. Is that clear? --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 11:51, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
Here you go! Are you happy? Unsigned comment by Woolly Mammoth (talk • contribs).
No - do you understand what I've just said? Wrecking someone else's image by flipping it and fiddling with the hue/saturation/contrast doesn't suddenly make it yours. This is copyright theft; this image will be deleted. What I now need is for you to recognise that this is unacceptable, and for you to take appropriate action against any other images you have uploaded which are also stolen from someone else. You and I both know you have uploaded images where you have done the same thing (stolen the image, fiddled with the contrast a bit, and claimed it as your own); you need to mark those images for deletion now. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 12:01, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
What images are you talking about? Unsigned comment by Woolly Mammoth (talk • contribs).
Do you understand what I have said? Yes or No? --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 12:06, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
What images, in particular, are you talking about? "VunastiMamut" is a croatized version of "Woolly Mammoth"! Woolly Mammoth 12:09, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
