Hereby, RocketBrush Studio states that these kinds of unfair business practices are unacceptable. We have always adhered to the Intellectual Property rights and respected them. Employing other artists' and studios' works without direct and explicit indication of the author in the commercial portfolio to attract customers and make profits is a sign of a shady and untrustworthy business entity and deserves nothing, but widespread contempt.
Moreover, we couldn't expect these kinds of disturbing practices to be employed by "The Best Upwork Agency 2019 in Kyiv, Ukraine
" in Design & Creative area.
After we have proved that aforementioned portfolio page hasn't been used as a backlog, but as one of the main tools to attract the customers by GamePack Studio, we can't agree that it was a mistake or an unpredictable turn of events. We consider this as a malicious attempt to deceive the customers and a dirty move that can't be justified.
It seems that the management of GamePack studio employed a rather shady scheme in which they take consent allegedly to show the works of the other artists to the new clients, but then, in fact, the studio deceives those artists by using their works as they see fit. Obviously, this has been happening systematically, and Ruslan Zelensky reached out to dozens of artists with the same request, including those artists who have never worked with the GamePack studio. Judging by the available information, we can conclude that GamePack studio in some cases goes even further and borrows the works of the other artists without any preliminary discussion taking place at all. This helps GamePack to fill their portfolios with works of notable artists from all over the world, including those who have never worked for, let alone ever heard of GamePack studio.
We stand with the other game art outsourcing studios and artists whose intellectual properties were stomped by GamePack Studio, and we hope that this information will reach the general public, artists and game developers preventing them from having any business affair with GamePack Studio.
The game developers should be aware that their materials may be used without permission, because clearly, GamePack Studio has no respect for the copyrights and does not hesitate to overstep the IP boundaries when it comes to taking credit for the other artists' work.
