About Ocean of Blossom’s Artwork

Hello,

recently there have been some comments about the artwork we used for “Ocean of Blossoms”. Some people informed us that it looks very similar to an artwork by Chinese artist c7肘.

We are sorry for having borrowed the setting of the artwork by c7肘, not realizing we should have told the original artist. We have contacted c7肘 and discussed the issue, she thinks that borrowing these elements is not copying or theft. So, using the artwork for now is not a problem to her. If we decide to produce a re-print of the album a new artwork would be used.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. Thank you for your understanding.

  1. You should have told the original artist first before using it.
    Nowadays there are so many arguments about copyright and commerce use in China. It is a hard time of copyright.
