Nice Paper Toys

The Papertoy Network!


it's been a while since my last post!

Hope everyone is well!


I take the opportunity of this post to explain a seriously problem.

I've received lot of mails asking to me why you can't download some of my papertoys, unfortunately, I have a bad news… Some Chinese companies (not only) take my papertoys and make money with it. Even if all my papertoys are protected by copyrights…they don't care about it and it's hard to do something with foreign companies…SO I decided to stop to sharing my works…It sucks I know but it's the only solution I've found to protect my work for good…

I think "sharing" takes a great place in the papertoy spirit, but we can't let some grasping guys make money with our works.

That's why this new papertoy can't be downloaded.

Be sure, I'm really sad and frustrated by this situation...

I have to find a solution but for now, sorry for that...

I agree with Mariette as well :)

Yes, you're absolutely right, Mariette!!

Really sad news, but very understandable, Tougui! Please keep in mind that you have a serious following of collectors, who would hate to miss out on anything you make, so keep showing your creations to us. Of course I love the free stuff, who doesn't, but I would also be willing to pay for your creations if I can afford it. It's better you earn something from your own hard labour than those thieves in China.

Man those slimy suckerz. Your toys have always brought me joy sir Tougui. I look forward to the solution to the problem. Until then we will just have to enjoy looking :)

I too hate it when others profit off of someone's work. Thats the risk of sharing your work online. maybe you could tryout a mail list.

It's so annoying that they copy and sell your work. And its so sad that we cannot download it anymore. I really really hope there will be any kind of solution!!

:'( I really enjoy your work, don't want to see it go. Perhaps you could disclose your templates to a select group you trust, so they wont spread, but we can still build them?
