About this, I saw many 'akatsuki stuff' but all stolen/copied and just bad quality. So I took it upon myself to design something better, and made some original hand drawn akatsuki/naruto content in photoshop, in regards to being unique, completely. I even called it 'Trainingsuit' etc, to stay clear from copyright naming.
After I sold quite abit, and my many hours of designing paid off, it got taken down automaticly. And I lost 15k meret credits, roughly bit more than €100~. I asked about the policy and in the chat I only got the response: "You shouldn't use real life images". Where that comment came from, nobody knows since it was hand drawn completely from scratch.
As far as I know, the system just deletes automatically whenever it gets too many reports. Let's say you're having an argument with a random, and the guy goes to report your items with his whole guild, boom - item taken down. You lost your credits.
Because if this 'team' of agents really looked carefully, they'd notice right away that my content was genuine and unique. Unlike the 100 other people selling and stealing eachothers template with bad quality. Oh fun fact, those people are still selling in-game.

If you're not going to properly police free content creation, Nexon, remove the monetization of it entirely. It's supposed to be used for people to express themselves and share cool creations they made, but the monetization of it is simply encouraging scummy and predatory behavior. No reason not to steal when there is so much profit and there are no consequences. Monetizing to encourage content creators only really works when the creators are protected; otherwise you get this shitshow that may ultimately just kill off the design shop.
You'd think Nexon would be more on top of something that is directly related to their ability to make $$$. Why spend $50 buying merets when you can steal a templates, use a free voucher, and then claim and sell it as your own with no consequence with the potential to make upwards of $100 in merets? Ridiculous.

There is a penalty if you are caught though. Like losing all those merets and a possible ban.

Inb4 they just remove the design feature of MS2. Just deal with it, it is the same way in real life. People will make fakes or steal and resell.

Somehow i feel best solution is to remove UGC since most creations is even better made by maplestory 2 by themself and then we know it arnt copyright issue, everything player make is most percent of copyright issues of copying from animes, pictures direct taken from google - so best solution is just to remove the previlegies to actually use UGC then it wont make people greedy and end up in problem just because of their greedness.
