So recently I've noticed that on the featured reel, there has been a particular species of texture packs. These supposedly completely original packs often have a detailed description like "hey this took me 20 hours so diamond diamond diamond favorite tnx". But those packs seem AWFULLY familiar. Why? Because they are STOLEN. It literally takes 30 seconds to post a stolen texture pack and everything the original author did is reduced to nothing. No credit given, just a short description, some pictures, and an unoriginal download button. The hours after hours the original author put into the pack is completely overlooked, and instead, some 12 year old kid gets all the fame and credit.
Every time I try to browse for some creative textures, all I see is stolen ones. Literally. Here's what happened this morning: I was checking by the newly updated section of texture packs, and the first page includes: 1 painterly remix pack that has been given a new name, 3 packs with a beautiful featured picture but when downloaded, it's the DEFAULT PACK. 1 gerudoku with another name, 4 simplecrafts, and 3 that looks decent but has the desctiption of 4 words.

THIS HAS TO STOP. I strongly urge you people out there to REPORT the packs that looks like the following:
Sphax PureBDCraft
Dokucraft-The Saga Continues
SMP' Revival

Those are the packs I most see remixed and reuploaded. Keep an eye out for them.

Thanks for taking your time to read. Leave a diamond and favorite this if you agree!

Because of my un-dieing LOVE for the Painterly texture pack, I must do this. Rhodox deserves the credit.

I agree with this blog it does seem like many texture packs are being stolen, and given no credit to the rightful owner
