Original Work: My name is Scott Ford and I am a graphic artist operating under the company name of Aetus Art with online aliases of “Aetus,” “haliaeetus,” “M. E. Vehnt,” and “moisteaglevent”. Kiwifarms.net, is infringing on my copyrighted work. The original pieces, to which I own the exclusive copyrights, can be found at:

1. https://www.furaffinity.net/view/26330770/
2. https://www.furaffinity.net/view/30138317/
3. https://www.furaffinity.net/view/29649293/
4. This is a selfie I posted on my website and technically, it’s copyrighted too since I took the photo: https://aetusart.com/about-scott-ford/
5. There is a selfie I posted to Twitter depicting myself and my husband Colin on Christmas vacation.
6. Finally, there’s also a snippet of an article I wrote about bald eagle reproduction. I’ve since removed this from furaffinity.net but it had been posted under the same Fur Affinity account (haliaeetus).

You're required to have a Fur Affinity membership and disabled adult filters to view the above content. Because of this, I’ve also rendered screen-shots of the original images, opened as working files in Photoshop and annotated with my unique watermarks as semi-transparent layers. Similarly, I screenshotted my network folders where the selfies were stored and signed/watermarked them as well. If you would like these images as proof that I am the creator, please provide a means to send the images.

The anonymous poster mentions that my material is available ONLY to members of the source sites yet they copied it anyway. In addition to violating copyright law, the post also creates the opportunity for minors to access pornographic material anonymously without an account—something I take extra efforts to avoid.

Hi Scott,

I've reviewed the allegedly infringing work and believe it is used fairly. The author of the post is criticizing your art and person in a way which necessarily requires the material he has used to make their point. Without that fair use of alleged work, his post would be just a rant. In no way does the use of this work infringe upon any market reserved by the original work.

Where it was originally posted is irrelevant to this complaint, as is what age restrictions you put on it. The Kiwi Farms is also an adult website, noted in the footer: "This website is for adult audiences. If it is illegal for you to view adult material, leave immediately."

I believe in good faith that the works are used fairly for the purposes of criticism and ridicule.

You may send servicing to this address.

Yeah, what's the deal with the second URL? It literally doesn't contain anything on him, other than the fact that it delves into the legality of birdfucking.

Also what, his content is more easily seen by children on the original sites (Since minors do hang out there) than here, where most seem to be in their twenties (A majority at least).

Oh fuck of Grammarly, "Birdfucking" is a word.

He left out some required parts of a DMCA takedown but at least it's a reasonable message. Since he received a reasonable reply I look forward to seeing if a chimpout results.

Another Furry that makes degenerate art, spergs about Donald Trump and sends a copyright claim. Not really that different from normal fair, but like has been said already, his message is readable. That's odd to me. Maybe it's just I spend too much time looking at the complaint threads but it's usually a really badly written message with no understanding of copyright law, an angry rant about how Null is a monster who MUST take this page down now or they'll sue him, or both.

I wonder how he even found out he was mentioned. It was only like two messages. Not a full thread. He looks like one of those guys who'd set up Google Alerts for his name / handles.

Edit: His F-List has verbal abuse as a kink. Why is he even complaining?

It may be a crime to do to eagles what he is doing.


Disturb means to agitate or bother a bald or golden eagle to a degree that causes, or is likely to cause, based on the best scientific information available, (1) injury to an eagle, (2) a decrease in its productivity, by substantially interfering with normal breeding, feeding, or sheltering behavior, or (3) nest abandonment, by substantially interfering with normal breeding, feeding, or sheltering behavior.
