Has David Boyer (hiding under the name David Byron and all his other names) plagiarized Activision?
Compare the two covers above. You tell me.
When respected publishing icon Tyree Campbell of Sams Dot Publishing agreed to publish the anthology "Crimson Screams" which was edited by David Byron (Boyer), "Iron" Dave(Boyer) told Mr. Campbell that he would provide his (David Boyer's) own artwork- this according to Mr. Campbell, who is above reproach. But this was before he knew about Boyer's/Byron's plagiarism issues. So Mr. Campbell, who is the most honest publisher you could ever ask to deal with, might have been taken in like the rest of us. If so, then he's not very happy, either.
So tell me, in your opinion, after claiming that he (David Boyer/ David Byron) provided his own original artwork to Mr. Campbell, has Mr. Boyer (Byron) really ripped off Activision and Sam's Dot Publishing or what? Or do you think he got written permission from Activision? He never mentioned any of this to Mr. Campbell, so maybe he was trying to avoid asking for written permission. So much easier to just take what's not yours and try to profit from it. Compare the pictures again. If he did rip them off, do you thinkActivision is going to stand for that??
Now that Activision's lawyers have been notified, how pissed are they?
If corporate lawyers were salsa, do you think they'd be mild, hot, or flaming hot over him taking their picture and claiming it as his own? I can't wait to find out.
