Robbed UPDATE by Asenceana Robbed UPDATE by Asenceana
Thanks to the wonderful i discovered only today that one of my pieces of art has been stolen. A person called Neko*Lonely* on myspace has taken this image of my Tipard [link] and put it on his myspace gallery. As you can see clearly above he hasn't even bothered to take off my signature and it also says my name clearly. Changeofheart2 sent me this link [link] where they were discussing art theft where my image had been listed second in the list of suspicious artwork that looked like they did not belong to him. This is his myspace gallery...[link] so if any of you have a myspace account have a look to see any of 'his pics' is one of your artwork. Feel free to flame him and let him know who that artwork really belongs to...

Let's stop art theft. Those arseholes.

Here's a list of other myspace users who have posted up other artists artwork without permission.(It's evergrowing...)
[link] (I can see TaniDaReal's as well as Sarafina's)
[link] (TaniDaReals work)
[link] (Sarafina)
[link]
[link] Sarafina's work again oh, and Domino's
[link] Shayde
[link] A very manipulated sarafina piece of art.
[link] An 'ArianWolf Doll?' Anyone know who that is?
[link] Henu
[link] Tassy


And many many many more on myspace- The place where people lack the inept ability to draw for themselves.

Hey, thanks for the note!

Woah... :wtf: this whole thing blows my mind away. It looks like the lionking roleplayers are just the tip of an iceberg. I browsed around on MySpace for a while and saw a lot of art stolen from DA artists as well... Pu-sama, Goldenwolf, VanillaKitsune, Kuitsuku etc. etc. etc. ... didn't even recognize most of them.

The worst of all is that apparently the admins of MySpace won't do a thing about it, they just keep ignoring artists' mails and the thieves are aware of this so many of them won't co-operate either.

Talk about some crazy shit here. :hmm:

What can we do?

Well... you can watch AntiArtTheft- this kinda club onDA that needs supporters. Pretty good really^^ They've listed the hot spots for art thefts to display stolen art and theyre actually writing in to the admins, quoting from the terms of agreement that the people have supposedly 'agreed' to follow. Including the parts about not stealing art. Gah, there's so much stolen stuff i just get angrier everytime i see great artists work being displayed. And even mutilated to suit that art thieve's character better ==' Hopefully these users CAN be banned><' Oh, there's also one more thing you could do. I've made a plaque to suppot 100% Originality (Of art i mean) And it would be awesome for people to spread it around DA, saying right outfront to their viewers that 'my art is 100% my own' and thus hopefully aiming for a less art theft....
Here, have a look! [link] A few people have displayed it on their gallerie's and linked it on their signatures. I'm proud^^

Hmm... that club seems interesting but I wonder if it's still alive? The owners of that place haven't logged on in a year.

I sent a mail to the kid who altered my art last week, no response so far. I tried to report the pic and got a message saying that it had already been reported... what's going on with that place o_O why do they even bother adding an image reporting feature to the site if they're not going to do a damn thing about pics that get reported? How irritating. :upset:

Ooh, shiny plaque :) I think I'll put that in my webcam. Thanks!

No problem! Thanks for helping spread the word! Ahhh and yeah.. i think there's no point trying to deal with them. I mean both myspace and the club. Gah my friends into law stuff and she's coming up with a very long precise copyright complaint letter. Hopefully they'll notice and do something about it.
Yes, anyway, thanks!

On a different note, that piece of artwork is gorgeous. I hope this stops; amazing artists such as yourself shouldn't have to deal with this.

Well that person is obvious thick in its head as you said he didnt even bother taking off your signature. I already went on his site and told him that artwork isnt from him and that it belongs to a profesional artist rather then a scandal. And tenically you could sue him for "art theift" or "privacy"

If he bothers you again or steals your art work, dont worry you got a lot of allies both Outside DA and Inside DA.
