Thank you for your email. The reason why we kindly asked Pebble to remove the copyright designs was our designers spend months developing these designs. Trial and error seeing what would work and what wouldn't. Some of the designs were designed by other people via the blog, and to protect their rights we hold patents on their designs as well, that can be signed over to the rightful owner at any time.
Often people do not understand what they did wrong when they steal another persons hard work, but it is really the same as stealing a physical item or plagiarized.
We are very impressed with Pebbles new watch and truly wish them great success and our motives are not to suppress designers but to rather encourage them to design their OWN designs. There are a lot of great designers out there so I'm sure you will see many new designs much better than ours in many cases.
I have to agree with TF here. Copyright bully is like saying a person who was caught stealing saying to the person they stole from, Hey you're greedy. You have enough so I have the right to steal.
