They're starting to get as bad as facebook now. Jesus christ. I hate to say this, but they may need to raise the age limit, saying this as a youth myself. Seeing as it's mostly younger people who do it.Seriously, If you have no artistic talent, don't try to impress anyone. Find something else your good at.
You think that is bad?? I have seen my own as well as a lot of other artwork from deviant reposted by others on another art site called comicvine..when asked about removing the art work i had done thei too it down ONLY after posting 19 complainted and constantly saying it was stolen did it get removed
there should be a more serious way to prevent art theft other than just water marking..like a disabled right click or something...
Since DA won't do a thing here's a simpler opinion...Just harass the asshole and inform everyone who comments on the work that it's stolen. It may not get what you want, but it's a little justice in its own way.
I, myself, like to copy photos for like youtube vids (always disclaiming anything since I can't draw worth crap) but I'd never ever say I created any work of art.
If it makes ya feel better I've at least had three ppl on ff.net copyright three different stories of mine, luckily I know how to threat and if they dont remove after I threat then ff staff will surely delete it. It's been done for me.
Though in a way you should feel flattered that someone would go to such great lengths to call something of yours their own, but I'm sure your pissed...hope everything goes for the best... ^_~
Maybe DA think that original artworks based on the works of other artists - just like fan art - are not to be taken as original. In their view we may be stealing the ideas of others. But I don't agree! We are not selling, just sharing art.
I would actually be flattered if someone thought my art was worth stealing. But that doesn't necessarily apply to other people. They don't even defend themselves. Not a word. Shame on that theif. No respect there. Keanstar... more like blackhole.
yeah you seriously don't have any right to tell what to do on her own stuff. If she doesn't reply then she doesn't have to reply. Don't troll for no reason, and her reply won't help keanstar get off either.
We're all irritated that people steal art like this, but being rude to others or making unnecessary comments won't help the situation
ok first of all i wasn't there when she apologized so how would I know.
So now your jumping down my throat for the way YOUR comment. Just read it, it sounds a bit rude too. No offense, but you can't expect people to reply to everything. So I just said my bit dont get pissed.
The person in cause has been banned by everyone, just reading the last journal makes me sad but that's the result of a wrong action. It's really shameful what she done but now she paid the price, she left the DA; i think soon her account will be deleted. And what DA did not do is shameful as well. So, we need to be careful what we post from now on, and hope this kind of situation wont appear anymore. PS...at first i thought someone stole your works, thank goodness it wasn't the case
i understand but this guy made a previous account here and just created a new one when he deactivated the other one. it makes me wish dA had a system that when they ban a member, it bans them based on their IP address so it's harder for them to create a new account.
i recall though it took months for another one of my works to finally get removed. i wouldnt have remembered it if i hadnt asked to get an update when i reported the manner. dA needs to really do something about reports.
it takes a lot of time to get through all the spams and so on... I once reported a deviation and it took a month or more until it was finally deleted. Admins are humans too X) ~ just be patient I guess
I know! and they have a pretty hard job i would say, but what upset me about this is they *refuse* to delete it, claiming those who reported where third party and there for didint have a say in the matter... T.T
