    Can someone comment on the legitimacy of this?

    Because, if it's real, I'm pretty heavily inclined to delete most of everything from my DA accounts.

    Art theft by users is one thing. It's hard to combat that, in general.
    Art theft to be sold by fucking Hot Topic is another.

    Oh no I hope not. I have a nice, albeit tiny, niche carved out in dA, and I get more exposure for my art there than anywhere else. But if that's for real, I'd delete my account to protect my work.

    Same.

    I actually have a decent following for my stupid koopa doodles on DA, where it's pretty much nonexistent (except on my Tumblr RP account), otherwise.
    There's also quite a lot of stuff I like on DA.

    But I don't want something that I am actually, heavily proud of to show up on some fucking mall shirt with no way to have it taken down.

    Sign your things if you plan on uploading them to dA.

    I do that, anyway.
    In fact, I've been using more "in your face" watermarks than I generally ever have.

    But I don't think that would stop a company like that.

    I wonder if Hot Topic got a license from the people that own the IP of the show it's fan art of...

    Would be funny if HT got sued, they fingered DA for selling it to them, and DA got sued.

    If only.

    I bet its real, if you haven't you might want to read this valuable info that Cooley posted, its really very disheartening that some site supposed to support artists is just stealing their work.

    and people wonder why I put a watermark on my art :/

    Yeah but there is also the fact that someone may have stolen it and posted it into the contest, in which case the artist has every right to be upset and have it removed. That part I find is Da's problem somewhat. They never seem to remove reported or stolen artwork for a really long time.

    Well at least it's cleared up.

    I do know that Hot Topic is guilty of lifting shit to put on their shirts, regardless.

    Just reinforces that I need to keep a nice fat watermark on my shit, the more I feel proud of the work I put into it. Not that my relatively unnoticed stuff would be found for that purpose, anyway. But you never know.
