I really hope the LBP portion of the story was just a coincidence, but I dunno...

Even if it wasnt... the user agreement clearly states Sony owns your creations and can do what they want with it.

@1.1

I bet a whole 5 people actually read that lol...

a shark is such a common animal.
i'm sure there were other animal type costumes sent in.
animal costumes are not very original, way to common imo.

It's in every contest ruleset (not just Sony's).. they can use your submissions for their own work the moment you send it in. You're basically signing over the rights to it for nothing.

Sorry, no story there... (other than the fact that whoever made it should be happy to see it used.)

Yes a shark is a very common animal and it could just be a coincidence but what caught my eye was that the shark had Hawaiian flowers on it and the fan made pic was Hawaiian... looks like they just switched it to make it look like it was their idea..

This is similar to what I read about when J. K. Rowling (Harry Potter Author) was signing books in the US and fans were giving her small stories about her book. An assistant took the stories before Rowling could touch the paper.

After she asked why they were taken. The responce was that if you write something in the next book and someone wrote something similar they could sue you for theft.

LBPs shark looks like it was ripped off from a pool float more than the contest submission.

As Tim Curry pointed out, Sony have got the small print in place to protect from copyright infringement cases.
