    Indeed. Excuse my french but those kinds of blogs/emails/whatever are an absolute load of twaddle.
    I've been seeing the same panics about photobucket, myspace, facebook since time and memorial. Do you have any idea what would happen to a sites usage if that were the case? The premise is completely laughable and sad.

    EDIT: Ninja'd...but yeah, this horse is getting the flogging of a lifetime.

    I think the fact that it doesn't link back to the ToS so people can't see for themselves and covers up the original text with writing are red flags this is just fear mongering and not really true because the OP obviously knows that no one on Tumblr will bother to check to see if this is true.

    So no worries there. Artists still retain the rights to their works. Also Tumblr complies with the DMCA so legally they can't do that.

    Oh man, same. I also refuse to reblog anything claiming to be true until I do.
    I also refuse to reblog art that does not have the source included.

    Someone's pulling some sort of stunt here to get attention to their tumblr. That's about all I see from this.
    I want attention! *posts scary post* - *people go crazy* "yay attention!"
    *forever alone face*

    I think DA makes enough money without illegally selling prints of your Sonic recolor and traced Naruto drawings.
    Hahahahhahaha. There is also a TON of bady traced/recolored MLP "art". :I

    I'm a bit confused. Is this really site discussion? I know the OP was somewhat leaning towards it, but it's really more of an issue with Tumblr?

    Zero concern. None. Not only has it been proven that Tumblr itself doesn't do it, but if Weasyl did come up with such a dumb scheme, it wouldn't be long before it crashed and burned. Considering the community involvement of the staff, I seriously doubt it will ever come to that.

    It became about tumblr and a user scare-mongering but started out as "Weasyl, please don't become like this post I found on tumblr".
    I think it's legit, discussing policies and such. :I

    Must... get... notes...

    Seriously though, this is on a lot of uploading websites. Hell, Tumblr will even take down images if you file a DMCA/Copyright claim for them.
