    Yes this is a harmless rip off. The Mii creator is hardly a viable medium for gainful creativity. I really like the channel as well.

    If he didn't want people making them and taking credit, maybe he shouldn't have provided detailed instructions on how to rip him off of Mii artist popularity.

    A sham, nah.....it's a bit simple, but it just launched, they can always add features to pimp it out a bit. The only thing I don't care for is using only initials for the name.......I know that's a protection-scheme issue, but still. The channel is fun, and a good idea in general I think :)

    Oh my gawd! The mii artists are being "raped"!!!! SOMEBODY CALL THE POLICE!

    ...sigh

    like I care. Mii artists you say? D'oh ! Like you need anything special to create real looking mii's. Nintendo hands you a box of parts you just pick some parts, call it your OWN design and go cry when you see someoe who does the same!
    An artist is someone who can create something out of nothing. So you call people who make famous looking sims sim artists? Its pathetic that you can actually make such a big deal out of this....

    Its accectly the same as that guy who said he thought of clans first. That he invented them here >.<

    Making well known people ( jack black ) pfoeh! That is so original! Thank you for inventing that! Strange that I never thought of doing that! Or any of the other millions of wii owners!

    I wouldn't call it a sham. Is it near perfect? I'd say no. Are there suggestions I'd make to Nintendo about how the channel would be better? Of course, but a Sham? Hardly.

    His laziness and stupidity led to his mii being ripped off.

    The main point is to show creativity!

    If you created it and some people bites off of you, then be proud!

    You're one hell of an artist!

    xD

    I want my work to be copied :(

    hahaha

    I didn't expect myself to like this channel... I ended up liking it x]

    Technically these are all Nintendo's mii's.

    Get over it.

    i think it is a sham but cool and useful to.

    reasons it is a sham.
    1. you can download mii's and upload them again for a contest.
    2. you can't find the mii's you uploaded without the entry code
    3. not integrated with keyboard ability s. (i think its just dumb that Nintendo hasn't integrated keyboards into all of the channels because i sit down grab my wii mote and keyboard to realize i don't need it for what i am doing its just ridiculous.
    4. you can only see top 50 at any given time unless you veiw the limited grab bag area.
    5. you can't search for a mii (i tried this looking for a guy with fighting skills and comedy skills and it only came up with secret skills)
