Oh, the irony...

To my friends on DesktopNexus.
There has been some drama with members of the dA-community and the people of desktopnexus who keep stealing our artwork and don't want to understand that they can't use any image from the internet for their wallpapers. Check out :iconthehellsangels: if you want to know more about this case.

If you have an account there, please fav and download it. Spread the word (before I get banned for "unneccessary arguing" :D).

Btw, I didn't put my watermark on this, because.. well, you get the point.

Well my friends are working to reform copyright law by inposing very draconion rules on copyright owners. They said the only way to fix copyright abuse is to severely punish the rights holders for it. Such as punitive revocation of copyrights on desputed works. Meaning if you harass some over the fair use of your work, you lose your copyright as punishment. Also upon your death, your copyrights automatically expire and your IP becomes public domain as part of the federal estate taxes PERIOD! No ands, ifs, or buts!

I for one actualy support this because of all the legal harassment I have witnessed taking place. Not to mention that verious works have been pulled from the public domain and placed back into copyright protection essentially giving the dead author's families a free ride for life.

Well said. Art theivery is teh suck, and they need to quit. Nobody wants the backhanded compliment... I say this because if you are good enough to have people wish they were like you, YOU are doing something right, while they are being so inconsiderate as to lift something that doesn't belong to them. Buttwipes. Thanks for sharing this one!

Thank you, because when that happens then folks will stop stealing, I too had somewhat experience with folks stealing and selling my writing on their sites, I too agree it's so unbelievable how they think they can get away with this...

If you upload it here at least you are automatically guaranteed a copyright.

I know this by reading some of the comments on similar topics like this. Even though they are against it they still say that people have no copyrights to their work. I'm like wtf. It says if you put it on this site it is copyright to you. You even get to choose the type of copyright. Plus some people say that artists on here wouldn't have the money to hire a lawyer if their art got stolen. Haven't they ever heard of lawyers that don't get paid until they win a case? Oh well though.

For visual artists it's pretty hard on the internet, writers for example don't seem to have this problem (although there is plagiarism).

I don't know why its so hard. If you don't post it up for others to use they shouldn't have a right to use it.

THIS! THIS SO MUCH!

ILU.

Good luck making people understand copyright. It seems to be a losing battle most times.

Incidents like this one you're dealing with are precisely why tumblr made me want to puke. Is one link to a flickr/devart/pixiv so damn hard? Not that it's A-OK to repost stuff like that even, but...RRRRRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAGGGGGEE.

Ein sehr trauriges Thema...Habe mich dort auch umgesehen,es sind soviele Arbeiten von DA-Künstlern dort und ich denke,auch die vielen Fotografen haben keine Erlaubnis gegeben,das ihre Bilder dort als Wallpaper hochgeladen werden...

Ja,das verstehe ich auch nicht,das da garnichts passiert...
Wenn du auf einer privaten homepage was hast,kriegst ganz schnell ein Schreiben vom Anwalt mit einer wahnsinnigen Forderung,aber die haben wohl alle Narrenfreiheit....

Well said. I've see my work posted on various blogs over the internet. People just don't care about copyright

I've also seen work published on DA that is other people's work.
People steal.

Automatic copyright is not granted.
I've even seen someone publish work under the copyleft license (which grants copying rights) accompanied with warnings against copying it. Some people don't read, don't listen, don't want to learn and think they can dictate to others.

On dA people get banned for uploading copyrighted works, this is much more than other sites do. The people of DN don't care about copyright.
I know what you mean, but just because people steal it isn't okay. It will only get worse if no action is taken. I don't want to sit down and watch my art being spreaded on the net without any credit.

Not to mention they don't understand that ideas cannot be copyrighted. I have been flamed by people, not for stealing art, but stealing IDEAS! It drives me up the wall so much that I feel we need an Everyone Use Eachothers Ideas Day to show people that this type of BS is just not acceptable in a free and open society.

But I invented my own solution to the whole not giving credit issue, I invented my own Copyleft Licence:

Copyleft Just Credit Me Plz Public Licence v0.0
Copyright: My ass because that is where I pulled it out of.

Terms and Conditions:

1. Just credit me please.

2. You must use a Copyleft Licence to use the intellectual property. It can be any one you want: Creative Commons, General Public Licence, Do What The Fuck You Want Public Licence (I am not joking about this one, this is a REAL Copyleft Licence. Google it if you don't believe me.) etc. Or you can place it in the public domain if you want.

3. After you comply with the first two conditions, do what the fuck you want.

End of Terms and Conditions.
End of Licence.
