MixThePix shuts down

Due to continued unauthorized use of its icons by commercial software makers, has decided to close is Web site indefinitely. "I want to thank everybody for their support, but unfortunately it didn't help," a notice on the site reads. The site proprietor blames ADNX Software for illegally using MixThePix's icons, and refusing to remove them from their products.

    WE THINK THAT THE DEBATE IS CLOSED.

    The artist closed his Web site and makes slandering.
    Our lawyer is from now charged of this problem.
    We think that it don't say the truth.
    By changing our icons, we showed that we respect artist rights.
    Anybody can an make an error and it's not our fault
    if bad archives of the artist are available on the internet.
    The artist recognized that its way of distributing icons
    was not good and posed problems.
    We think that it will exert its great talent in other fields.

    In English

    They are claiming that the icons they downloaded did not say they can't use it in a commercial product.

    They are now changing their icons so they do not violate copyright.

    They don't get copyright

    ADNX clearly don't understand copyright. When you create something, you instantly have copyright protection. His icons are his to create, and to use them commercially, clearly they need his permission. If he won't give it, they shouldn't be using his work for profit. End of story.
