This article is the first in a series I am writing concerning copyright laws and what we, as artists, can do to protect ourselves and our work from art thieves. Granted, in this day and age, it has become harder to protect our work. We are not always aware of it being stolen and illegally posted. Consider it luck, if a friend or another Deviant stumbles upon it and informs us so that we may do something about it.
Art theft is not only a major concern among the artists here on DA, it is also a major problem. We have taken steps from adding the copyright symbol along with our name in the artist's comment box, to adding it to the images themselves, to putting watermarks the size of the image on the images; and still the thieves continue to steal art without a second thought to consequences.
What's worse, is the websites that permit this art to be posted even after they are made aware that the art is in fact stolen. Some sites do co-operate and remove both the work and the user who posted
