Friendly Reminder about Art TheftHey guys!More Like This
First off I just want to say thanks to everyone who let me know about other people stealing my work and posting them to their dA pages and Tumblr accounts. If you're ever in a position where you're wondering "should I bother Vest about this? Would he get mad at me for spamming his inbox letting him know who is posting his work as their own?" I assure you, it would be much better if I knew than if I didn't.
I read every note that I receive, especially ones regarding serious issues like art theft.
I would also prefer it if you guys didn't confront the artist and tell them they're being bad. They're art thieves, they either don't care who they're hurting, or they're too stupid to see the error in their ways. I've seen thieves go to tremendous lengths to justify art theft, mostly to their own fragile little ego, with excuses like "I'm protected by Fair Use" or "this is my first amendment freedom of speech."
Oh, the "Fair Use" idiots. Those are my favorite to take down. Really tea
