Another day, another theft. Welcome to TSR.
TSR are back to their usual habit of stealing from free creators and selling the stolen goods to their subscibers. This time it is Pralinesims making a tidy profit off of the back of a talented free creator, LemonLeaf http://blog.sina.com.cn
Pralinesims claims to create and hand paint their ‘creations’ but as the following screencaps prove, They did little more than simply steal them.
The following images and quotes below are taken from Lemonleafs blog and translated from Chinese to English. ( Please allow for bad Google translation! ) http://blog.sina.com.cn/s/blog_63e832e00102dsde.html
Some stolen content is on Pralinesims blog, some is being sold at TSR.

Lemonleaf says “ Pralinesims, you can only imitate, we all know, do not quibble.
Reference to the extent that you are mild, you is not even the cottage, you is naked malicious imitation and plagiarism! You stole this behavior and what is not the same!
This is your naked malicious imitation and plagiarism! Your act like this is theft!
you can imitate someone else’s work, but he did not creativity, it is for the designer failed.
You only imitate other people’s work, Yourself has no Creativity, it is for the failed Designer.
Although you ridiculous claim “absolute hand-painted,” but the things and others are very similar. Do you think we are fools good to deceive you?
Although your ridiculous claim “Absolute hand-painted,” but the things and others are very similar. Do not deceive us.”
“This is What do you mean, get rid of my freckles would impress it? ! In addition to no freckles, and other high similarity In addition to no freckles, and other high similarity”
“A little creativity you can not do? To do something is always someone else’s shadow.
“You start to imitate my cherry lip gloss, I have not discovered you, we see that a lot like
Cherry Co., Start to imitate My lip GLOSS, We see that a Lot like
It is early to imitate my cherry lips, sister can not afford to really hurt, you can not change the point of good-looking, the whole circle of death of two rice up.
Figure not included with the material, because it is very bad, even if you said it was their own hand-painted? This cottage is also not right.
Like his examination paper copy of the same table had 100 points, but the goods may say, “where I have copied, all my own handwriting, I did not use her hand.”
“Poor copy of poor quality copy
A typical poor cottage, you are copying more than a year Ah, but this level? The works of Da Qiannian soft goods than you this 100 times.
Here are two Different lip Material map (a map of MASK, a map for the Overlay), to reduce the others to his doubts, his MASK Overlay maps and mapping will not Copy the same work.”
“MASK map comparison, I have the yellow copy , red, white color channel I will not be held (at least I would be the first M3 in use, including the soft before I worship is not such a big color selection color channels, these are my own way out, I can not say that this is my patent, can not say only for my own use, learn from each other after all is nothing wrong, I am also very happy to share with you)
sister could not really hold up, Ah you are actually copying the high light, silent . You only moved the location of the high light, the other in imitation Co., only moved the location of the High Light, the other in imitation Overlay maps contrast, sister could not really hold up, play to play cottage “insane god” stage, and When my sister I do cataract, “W” lips I can not say I am better than Tifa home first use, at least we are different, and I play this cargo camouflage, do not think you can modify the smear perfunctory in the past, sister of the natural female looks like its very clear, to be broken down in detail. Lip and textures are copied Lip and textures are copied up Overlay maps zoom in on details about contrast: familiar with the PS know, turn into the DDS will be reduced after the clarity of the material, I did not save the PSD because it was repeatedly revised DDS These lines appear lip seam (between the vertical upper lip and lower lip texture), was also the wrong that no change, until I make jelly lip was transferred into a smooth surface. Sister could not really hold up, hold no longer. . . To apply at least to my lips sewn texture also get go. Sister is an outsider when you do, add a filter effect when a change of clothes? PS Select”
— —- Glass filter can distort the texture of the above chart. In my map, for example, copying a first layer, then a layer of texture, the inner part of the lip erased, leaving without that layer of the Arts, is the superposition of two effects. Yes, then the lower lip slightly narrow point, change a background color, background color does not matter, as long as is not within the scope channel is not affected. Sister could not really hold up, hold no longer. . And then modify to modify, N number of cottage consumption without pear. High-yield specialized households consider themselves sister before, but even to admit, completely wrong. Compared to this day an update of the goods like no pear rapidly, even strange enough.”
“hold the upper body also could not stand living sister! Actually, actually, “a thief crying thief”, TSR, the map in their materials say
Please do not use My Textures! All My Creations are handpainted!
Co., can upload my creations with your sims, but please give credit. ”
sister I laughed, so that the goods actually know the true meaning of life, or do one’s own ears.
Sister just want to say “You are not qualified to say that these!”
psychological analysis, such a person so nervous:
1. I walked down the road, let people move on.
2. Very timid, to say the latter, as if a layer of paste coat, feel safe, does not belong to A stock.
Her adventures of the fast update rate (really have to totally waste of effort), I feel a lot of authors, including me, some of watermelon lip gloss, eyebrows, foundation, eye shadow have been cloned before. Sister has been patient, hold sister once lived, but the sister’s patience is limited.
As for the negotiations to find TSR, I just want to say may be futile unless the Americans may also find some use, say TSR has been very conniving these, otherwise you will not be piled inside the cottage, of course, in addition to some outstanding work.
After little sister to do make-up, so that the goods freely forget. Thank you for your concern, but hold back most of the year, like Jour like to blow off steam, laughed.
Finally, to say: Qingzheziqing, muddy those from the cloud! Can not hide the amount of non-truth!”
Thomas is aware of these thefts and chose to do nothing except firmly pat Praline on the back and offer support! Despite propaganda vowing to stamp out theft by TSR artists, this ‘rule’ only applies to free uploaders ( when caught ) TSR FAs, as always, are exempt. It is perfectly OK to steal if Tom ‘pedo’ Isaksson makes money out of it.
Please remember DO NOT SUPPORT THEFT, SUPPORT THE ORIGINAL ARTIST. DO NOT PAY FOR STOLEN GOODS!
UPDATE – A WTF Moment
Upon browsing the comments section of Pralinesims blogspot site I was discusted to read a repulsive racist comment directed at the Chinese people as a whole. Assuming that Praline did not ‘ghost write’ the comment themselves it still remains that they approved it. If the comments are not on approval only, I still have a problem with the fact that Praline posted her own comments between 8 hours – 2 days and counting after the racist comment and has still not removed it, despite complaints from other readers.
The racist comment was posted at 3/9/11 06:08 Praline visited her blog and posted at 3/9/11 14:43, 14.47 and again at 18.57 without deleting the racist comment. She visited again and posted the following day at 4/9/11 15:42, and the day after at 5/9/11 01:55. Other readers have complained to her about it, but still it remains. Nasty.
This shows the comment and Pralines first of many visits after without deleting it.
and the complaints..
