DROP ME A LINE
The story begins with a trending topic in the Deviation Thumbshare forum : "Show me Space Art and/or Robots!" by TeroPorthan forum.deviantart.com/showcase/…
I submited the deviation : "K9 - Doctor Who's pet friend"
And i got two answers from TeroPorthan
"Love it, thank you for posting! "
"If you want to be featured, remove the DA watermark! "
I was thinking about removing the DA watermark of my drawing to be featured by TeroPorthan who is a better artist than me and who has a lot more watchers than me.
But, before to remove the watermark, i had a look on Google search at the pictures for "K9 doctor who".
I found my drawing in the middle of the page linked to ClipartXtras instead of my DeviantArt account !
This website stole my Art !
No credit, no link to my DA account but a link to their own website for people who would use MY ART on internet.
On their website, there are several artworks from DeviantArt artists, i guess these artworks have been stolen too.
There are a lot of advertising on the ClipartXtras website, they make money with stolen art.
Here is the mail i sent to ClipartXtras today. I am waiting for an answer.
Today, i had the surprise to find one of my drawings on your website clipartxtras.com/
(The screenshots are joined to the mail).
You found this drawing on my deviantart account
and you did not give any credit or any link to the original artwork !
Instead, you ask people to give credit to your site :
"It's required to give attribution if you use this image on your website:
I did not know your website so i had a look at it, you just say :
"Cliparts and extras for teachers, students and parents by teachers and designers!"
Am i a teacher or a designer who works for you ?
I am proud of my artwork and i don't accept that people make money on it without asking and without giving any credit.
Since i wrote this journal, i found out that some of my artworks have been stolen by other websites :
The site getdrawings.com/ has removed all my drawings from their site.
The site clipartxtras.com/ has a report button but it has not removed any of my artworks.
On their Facebook page other people are complaining for stolen art.
A few other websites have stolen my drawings :
I have to find some time for adding biggest watermarks on all the artworks on Deviantart.
People will continue to steal my art but the big watermark will spoil their copy.
Great news ! Since i told everybody on Twitter that clipartxtras.com/ are thieves, finally they removed my K9 artwork from their site.
The war is finished and i won it !
Comments are welcome !
Pussy Riot claim to have conducted World Cup pitch invasion protests during the tournament.
A pitch invasion during the World Cup final between France and Croatia was carried out by the anti-Kremlin punk band Pussy Riot, its social media accounts have claimed.
The brief invasion was quickly addressed by security staff, and was one of the few political protests during the tournament.
The invasion featured two women and a man dressed in police-style uniforms who ran onto the field.
