    Oh my word its this drama again. This makes me feel like a dinosaur.


    DA does not pull this shit, when this 'rule' got created one of the first people to have this happen was Damien ( http://damie-m.deviantart.com/ ) , and they reassured that DA wrote a mail ASKING permission. DA does not own your art or they would have been flushed out the artistic system 7 or so years ago.

    Then again seeing how quick this kind of thing escalates to have so much people believing that goes to show how much trust their userbase trust deviantart. When people are quicker to blame your site than friggin' hot topic you know your PR is on the toilet

    Yea this rumor has been popping in and out for yeeeeears. Lots of fear mongering with that.

    Hot Topic though, it's been proven time and time again that they're constantly stealing from artists. I think I've seen 2 or 3 examples of it happening just in this year alone.

    Oh, it's not because I'm afraid of stealing.

    The art is just..terrible.

    At least the DA legal advisor was able to help answer some questions and explain how DA actually works when it comes to the distributing of artwork, its nice there is someone out there to clarify it.
    Though I am sure we all know that the problem is art theft, not only by persons but by companies that dont care.

    This this this so much this

    I'v seen so many great artists leave the internet because of the general disrespect. When a watermark plastered all over your work doesn't hold back pulling shit like this, you know its bad. And thats not just plain lifting iirc it was Swandog who had a deerface logo something getting traced (most probably into vector form) and then had that face printed on a fashion line.

    Isn't that an artist, who has been hired most likely to make things for this company, stealing from another artist.
    Just wow, mindblown. The nerve that person must have had to remotely assume people would not know a popular artist .

    Oh, about this Hot Topic grabbing? I think I may have the answer, if their policy is the same as from a local decal shop. "As long a Google Images display it, it is considered public domain, free-to-use, no royalties or contacts needed".

    I know. Stellar logic there. But it is enforced...
