Fan Art Law
Mon Sep 10, 2012 by techgnotic
t seems there’s nothing quite as dear to the hearts of many of our deviants as their production of fan art, and at the same time, there is nothing so knotted with legal and ethical headaches. Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but in the form of fan art it has also become one of the most frustratingly complicated. At some point, the sheer volume of fan art around a single property may become so large that the issue rises to another level of scrutiny by the creators of the original work.
With this dynamic in mind, we thought the following panel that Josh Wattles, our Advisor In Chief here at deviantART, and a mystery guest named Harold Smith, gave at Comic Con this year might be of immense help in understanding the ever evolving elements of fan art
BirthdayYeeep, today is my birthday, guys...I can't really believe I'm 17. I mean, it doesn't feel any different than yesterday when I was 16 obviously, but 17 years...man..one more year of school, then I'm done..besides college, of course...I'm almost legally an adult. It's just...wow.Birthday3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I want to thank you guys for all the birthday messages, llamas, points, etc...they really made me happy and feel special...I had gotten like...25-30 of them? It's awesome..thanks again you guys, I'm glad to know that you care.
Next big thing to happen, school will be starting in a few weeks...so obviously, I won't be on all day..and I'm sure it'll be kinda hard to RP with some of you that I usually do, because of the time differences, but I will try to do the best I can. Also, as for drawings, I won't be uploading as many..I know I haven't really uploaded any lately, but that's because I've been reallyyy lazy with drawing...I usually draw at school,

I just wanted to say an extremely very
supermassive THANK YOU to all the lovely birthday wishes.
I wasn't expecting to get nearly as many messages as I did. Checking my messages, my reaction was:
I told myself I wasn't going to count them. But I kind of did.
I think I received 82 birthday messages as well as some amazing presents.
Thank you to everyone. I had a lovely day.
If you're interested, I received, among other things, Tim Minchin DVD's, watercolour paper, and a 'Where's the Doctor?' book (http://www.forevergeek.com/wp-content/media/2011/12/wheresthedoctor_cover.jpg). (:
Sorry for not being able to do various requests/gifts recently. I've just been busy with exams and... well, birthday.
Thanks again - my watchers are the best. ;D

Status reportFirst of all I am glad to be back!Status report3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The outpouring of support, well-wishes and kind words made my time away a lot more tolerable. This is a personal "personal thank you" for everyone who pitched in to spread the word I had been suspended and where else (outside of DA) they could contact me. In fact the overt show of support seemed to be the pivotal factor in changing my permanent ban to a 2-week suspension.
Would have been nice for the suspension to be "2-weeks minus 6 days for time already served as a ban", but I was not going to be picky because I seemed to be treading on pretty shaky grounds with regards to their reasoning to why I was being immediately banned and not just suspended.
I am referring to the revelation that they turned down my ban appeal because of "my previous multiple suspensions" - suspensions that never occurred! (WTF!) Once I brought this to their attention, things happened behind the scenes pretty quickly and within an hour some button was pushed and my

I have always tried to support every poet here on DeviantArt, and always looking for more new poets who need the support of all of us. Been featuring poets and reading many many poems, I discovered that the most beautiful poems are written by those poets that nobody knows about them.
Amazing concepts, extraordinary imagery, and so much heart and soul. Each one of the following poems deserves a Daily Deviation any day and most of them are less than 10 fav.

Reading up David Hume's texts on "Problems of Induction" inspired me to compile an essential list pertaining to systematic workings of (canon) Sherlock Holmes in my personal journal, and :iconwindmaedchen: encouraged me to share it here; so here we are.
Let's face it: I'm not a criminal investigator. Far from it! However, especially because I'm more of an artist, writer, literature lover and conceptionist, the philosophy of logic appeals to me as much as the philosophy of... well, everything! I've compiled the following list of self-applied codes of Sherlock Holmes -- a character imagined by the ingenious writer, physician and logician, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle -- from the canon, of certain axioms and theories to consider in contemplation and practice.

Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with us!March 17th is traditionally known as St. Patrick's Day, a time to celebrate the Irish, feast, and enjoy all things green. It commemorates Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. Among numerous achievements, St. Patrick banished all snakes from Ireland, at least according to legend. Today, there are parades around the world to celebrate the day. And for many, St. Patrick's Day is a reminder that spring is on its way!Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with us!3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This

YOU MAY MAKE ONE LAVA LAMP PONY FOR YOURSELF without question (but please submit it) If you would like to obtain others please get them through adoptables (which only I can make at this time), breedable babies, customs or you may request to make yourself another one.
This journal is to request to make yourself a new lava lamp, not for me to make you one!
According to the species sheet (a new and better one will be made later)
1. Lava lamps are fragile glass like ponies with electrical cord tails and either plastic or metal feet. These can be any colour but normal colours are black electrical cords and silver feet. Glass is typically "clear" or a lighter version of the inside goo.
2. Lava lamps are ponies that do not have manes! If they do have manes they are wet/gooey/sticky and the same colour(s) as the goo inside their body as their manes are caused

Few words about Joker and Harley costumesREI: We wanted to make a small post about our new costumes, inspired by the amazing arts of NoFlutter :iconnoflutter:Few words about Joker and Harley costumes1 month ago in Personal More Like This
You, guys, must have seen my Victorian Poison Ivy costume, which was as well designed and drawn by the same artist. I felt in love with it the minute I saw it. And Ryoko also liked Harley Quinn’s costume and decided to make it in pair with me.
But after some time NoFlutter created the amazing, colorful and eye-catching design of gender bender Joker. And immediately we thought that would be a great idea to make the craziest comics pair of all times together. Harley Quinn and a new girlfriend she created for herself – the Lady Joker!
