She had them in a personal photobucket account that originally it was said Rebecca "hacked" into and then it was said that it was security by obscurity and that Rebecca "found" the photbucket account after searching for it and then downloaded it and stole the design. Noel never launched these designs or posted them anywhere to my knowledge and in 9 pages it has not been stated otherwise.
She wrote that she posted them to what she thought was a private photobucket account and I believe Michelle explained how it was possible for someone else to access it. So in light of this, if both of the collars, which are incidentally new designs, look exactly
the same, independent of IP logs, how would you explain the similarities? Coincidence? I can see if they look similar, but exactly
I take these charges very seriously becasue that is not just about copying a collar...this is someone accusing a person of criminal activity, this is not just a civil thing or a copyright thing it is allegations of criminal activity and that is a serious offense.
Huh? What crime, specifically?
I cannot just take it at face value as I hope others would not..because if it can happen to Rebecca it can happen to them. This place is not a courtroom it is a dog forum and we can go back and forth on this all day long, but if Noel has this proof that Rebecca did in fact "steal" from her then she needs to be at her attorneys office and not on this forum leveling these so far unfounded charges and trying to tarnish someone's reputation.
She's already posted that she is in the process of litigation, and I have stated that the best thing for both parties to do is clam up and take it to the lawyers. As far as the charges being "unfounded", I've seen the collars and, if the timeline is accurate, "unfounded" is the last word I would use. "Possibly legitimate" is much more accurate.
If someone thinks I am wrong for speaking up on this so be it, but I am on the side of the truth no matter which way that falls, but that will never be discovered by anything that is written here.
Frankly, with the amount of protest you have lodged at this point, I don't think you're on the side of "truth, no matter which way it falls". I think you are on the side of "Rebecca, whatever happens". You are already stretching something fierce.
