Am i the only one who reacts to the fact that people upload other peoples photos and just ad some text? I mean, i thought this was for people sharing their art, not for icanhascheezeburger pics..…
an example of an extremely popular upload...

i report all these i find, and i think other people should to.
on that shot he writes he has permission, though it is no url or information at all. doubt people has it on the usually motivational/fail shots that are here.
in general, i dislike shots like this on deviantart, they fall in the random boob and look-at-me-and-my-webcam category.


All feedback, fav, comments are very appreciated.
I reached the point where i don`t have time to reply, but i read them all.
if there is anything you want me to answer, just drop me a note.
Thank you for supporting me :heart:

Great point buddy. If I ever see this kinda thing, I will certainly report it too.

i agree 110 percent!! I believe that if you have deviant art, it should be your own;; not something that you've traced or something like that example that you have shown....... i think that people should have a deviant art account for ONE reason and ONE reason ONLY!!! to share YOUR OWN ART!!!!!!!!!:dummy:

Ugh that really bothers me, too. Take it somewhere else, people. *sigh*

I report these kinds of things too. It's frustrating, and I know how it feels like since someone uploaded my photo and claimed it as his own. And it sucked more 'cause he was a good friend and he just used my photo to get noticed and be "cool". They take credit for something that someone else had worked really hard for and put so much of themselves into it. It's such a sick thing.

Another thing that sucks is the spread of images like these. I mean, that looks like it belongs in a blog not an art community.

I report such things too. I used to ignore it but sometimes it just angers me!

I definitely agree with you, there is no place for stuff like this in an art community, and it's a shame there are people that trace and use pictures\art without any written permission of the artist.

this is probably not related, but are you aware that DA is fully allowed to sell our art to people? As soon as it is uploaded, we're giving away our rights to devart
Sortvind Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2010
that does not sound good at all, it happens?

yes occassionaly. my dad was reading a photography magazine and it was saying about how all sites like photobucket, DA etc own our art. A girl was suprised to find her self portrait on the cover of some random magazine.
