Tutorial: Legally Get Your Stolen Art RemovedMore Like This
Here's a quick tutorial for anyone who might find their artworks on a website without their authorized permission. This is the method that you legally go about having copyright infringement dealt with, so your request (if submitted to a host located in the US or other countries that respect copyright laws) will not go ignored. You do not need a lawyer to file a DMCA takedown notice, you only need to be the copyright holder of the work. If you created the work, it's copyrighted to you.
You will usually not get much of a response if you try to submit an informal copyright notice through Support requests on a website. This method is what's outlined in Section 512(c) of the Digital Millenium Copyright Act, and what service providers will respond to.
STEP 1: See if the website has a copyright section in the Terms

PE: Its For Who Its For!At the time that I wrote this article, it was the day after I found out that someone had said some very mean things against my art and me as a person that was posted very viral onto tumblr for over a 12,000 people to see. While I tried not to let it phase me much, it did get me thinking about a talk I once heard titled "Its for who it's for, it's not for who it's not for!". Ironically the next morning that was the talk I was listening to on my iPod as part of my daily dose of success principle CD listening. Background over, let's get to the point shall we?More Like This
The talk was basically by a best selling author who discovered his book rated on a site, I believe was called, goodreads.com or something along those lines. He was talking about how he had all 5's, a few 4's and 1 big fat 1, on a scale of 1-5. He drew something out that really struck home with me and I'd love to share it here. It looked like this:
He said that's the curve of likeability of his book. T
Commissions Contracts: A Must Have. Yes, there is a lot to read and Yes you should read it. Copy it, paste it and edit it to suit your needs as a commissioner or commissioned artist. Protect yourself by drafting a contract and understanding it.</a>More Like This
It has come to my attention that many deviants commission their work and hold proceedings entirely over deviantArt. In the case that your client/commissioned artist begins to use and distribute your work illegally you will need to have a greater standing than simply a bunch of e-mail print outs if you are to go to court over the matter of misuse. Often the matter is over misunderstanding, which a contract will also help clarify for both parties.
I cannot stress how important it is when doing commissions to have physical signed copies of an Artist/Client Commission Agreement or at the very least a signed confirmation of engagement. It takes longer to organise, especially with overseas clients, but it protects the rights of both parties to the work and is worth the day or so
