Devious Journal Entry

Journal Entry: Sat Jun 4, 2011, 6:47 AM


This is the perfect example for what I have been bitching about - www.deviantart.com/print/19852…?


Not one single image in this users gallery - skylerelizabeth.deviantart.com… - belong to them and they freely admit this on each image.

So now deviantART gets to make money off any print sales, as well as the traffic this sort of crap brings to the website. This person then gets to collect any profits as well, all off the back of someone else.

Porn site images, works of other artists right here on deviantART, random photos from Facebook, over and over and over it's the same thing.


Get your shit together DA! The DMCA does not apply when someone freely admits they did not create the image. User that are constantly removing images instead of providing a model release are admitting guilt by their actions. These people need to be BANNED, yet not one single thing has happened to a single one of these losers.


Welcome to the new Photobucket.



....and for you fuck nutz that think blocking someone means you cannot be reported, your an idiot.

"photo editing artist"? give me a fucking break. That's theft, pure and simple. It isn't like they're doing collaboration with a known artist, or even that they bought (or used) stock provided specifically for editing. I can't understand why DA suddenly doesn't want to do what it should.

Exactly and most of that losers work is a direct ripoff, found a lot of the pieces on sone Russian photographers page. Like I said I am still on the fence about closing up shop here on deviantART

I reported that person's gallery too. I hope it's just a case of the images not being removed yet, rather than not being removed at all.

Anyone that has this to say about the work they are stealing..

"I love doing Bodyscapes. You take a full size, color pic that is just of another nameless model and you can crop it, enhance it, and turn it into something interesting. I like that <3"

....another nameless model...does not care at all about the fact they are breaking copyright law and their WHOLE gallery is of other peoples work.

This has been going on for months. I have at least ten of them, nothing has been done, images won't be removed unless the ORIGINAL artist complains I have been told. The fact they can be provided with proof the image does not belong to the user seems to make no difference.

It does seem very strange that the person submitting the images actually stating that they didn't create them isn't enough to merit the pictures being removed.

Nope, they claim the original copyright holder must make the complaint or they cannot do anything.
