Hello,


I came across this site by hazard
:<https://society6.com/product/media-pov-ray-tracing_print>

A lot of POVRay images, even demo scenes, are for sale and the "artist
calcpage" for exemple : <https://society6.com/calcpage/designs>


Is this legal ?

Not sure...I guess if the images were posted as public domain there's not much
that can be done. I'm not a lawyer - can't say for sure. ....sucks there's no
credit to the artists.

For the scenes in the distrubution, I think so:
https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/

but there should be attribution.

Think I've found the guy behind this: https://shadowfaxrant.blogspot.com/ (Alvar
J Garcia-Fernandez according to his Github)
The Society6 profile is linked in the very long sidebar, he also has a Redbubble
and Zazzle with POV-Ray things on it. If he's not attributing and won't budge
when asked then it's probably possible to report the items to these services.
Pretty sleazy to take a cut from selling other people's hard work with
print-on-demand services honestly.
