The last days i have been trying to browse dA for stolen art and report it, and i am horrified to say that some are even stupider than i thought possible.

here are some of the responses i got:

"Wtf, ur lame" (when someone stole my work and claimed it as their own)

"it is stock, i found it on google" (i am not even gonna explain how lame that one is)

"someone asked a deviant with stolen work how photographed the shots, the deviant replied: i uses my eyes and imagination"..IMAGINATION?! It is not imagination to upload someones work..

*sigh* I am gonna continue report though, and we all should.
though i was they had a cyber-punch someone in the face option for premium members.


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:

as awful and appalling it is, there's a bright side; my mum always says that the best compliment a man can give another man's work is through copying them.

Poor Steel...What you 're trying to do is like fighting against an invisible and immortal enemy....
It's a crazy necessary work and you know it .....
Because of internet "freedom", "honesty" is more than ever, a dusty word......:cuddle::sun:

WEll, keep going at it. I report any work as stolen if I see it as well. To the person with the comment on Google, lets hope they dont reproduce ever.

thieves in the real world and the cyber world..

just wondering,

if someone reports stolen art, is DA giving a warning to the person who stole the art or can they immediately deactivate the person's account??
what about a DA Constitution/DA police?? to have a strict rule reprimand those who steal art, bully others etc. (this is kinda idealistic though =[ )

the nerve of some people. i mean i can understand if people just want to show amazing work they 'found of the internet' but just claiming the stolen pic is just ridiculous. stealing is not a great way to get attention >.<
