:bulletblue:In My Life:bulletblue:

Last two weeks have been really tough. I'm trying to enter the university of Helsinki and I've been reading for admission tests like crazy - and finally they're all done. However, despite of all that work I'm not very convinced that I'll make my way to the university. There were huge amount of applicants competing for those few student places - and even though I did quite well in the tests I'm not sure at all if that is good enough. :P Anyway, I'm so glad that I don't need to hammer contemporary poetics or media studies into my head any longer, now I'm just waiting for the results. Come what may, at least I've tried. ;)

So - now that I've freed myself from books - I'm back in dA. It wasn't completely happy returning though - I got a note in which I was informed that my work All Because Of You was removed by staff as a violation of the deviantART copyright policy. As I understand, one of the stocks I used contained copyrighted non-stock photography without the permission of the original photographer. I was told it wasn't my fault, but it still pisses me off. That piece was a gift for a special person - makes me wonder if I'm ever again going to use dA stocks made of stuff. :disbelief:

Well, maybe I can try to remake that manip with some other background... For now, I'll try to answer all the comments and take a look at new deviations as soon as I can. I really appreciate your support - and after all it's good to be here again.

Love and best wishes,
Iribel :heart:

OMGosh! I thought you'd blocked me from your pages for some reason when I was "Access Deviously Denied" the ability to see a reply to that particular picture. I'm so sorry you got caught with a © issues inadvertently like that - its very unnerving when that happens. I'm not sure what the restrictions are on using Stock Xchange images, but I think they vary according to the original owners of the images. I'm sure it was a mistake all round.

Glad to see you back :hug:

Beautiful featured pieces. :heart:
Wish you luck with University :thumbsup:
Thats terrible about the removed deviation, all the time and effort searching for good stock you expect it to be legally usable. :shrug:
Iribel Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2008
Thank you! I'm glad you like the features as well. :hug:
Yeah, that really is one annoying thing... Crediting the stock artists doesn't help much if the photos used aren't their own. :P
