Derivation: Why Fan Art IS a Valid Form of Art
It's recently come to my attention that some people really, really detest fanart. In some cases, I have to agree: things like the Super Smash Brothers: Brawl screenshots that keep on getting posted should not constitute fanart, as there was no actually effort put into the creation of that and the angles were set up by someone else.
However, on other things, I must draw the line, as saying fanart is not good soley based on the fact that it's not using original characters is pure and utter bullshit (for lack of a better term to use). I think one thing people need to remember that it's not a use of 'character' that defines art, but rather, how it's presented that defines it.
Now, for this example, I'm going to show this fanart by one :iconSaku666:: . Now, it's Sonic the Hedgehog, so that might lend itself to some flaming due to the distinctive nature of that series. However, this I believe constitutes art. Sure, the character isn't original, but what matters in this case i

deviantART: Crack down on Copyrights
This community has come together on many occasions to sign a petition to help a worthy cause. I never imagined something would have to be started because of a problem within deviantART.
If you haven't read the latest CEA Update, I'd suggest taking a look at it before you e-sign anything. I'm petitioning this revision because I think it's opening a door that will ruin this community.
Allowing members of deviantART to copy, trace, or duplicate any copyrighted artwork is giving a mixed signal to growing artists. Whether or not it's done with the intention of practicing, the act of submitting it into an official gallery here on deviantART is copyright infringement.
If we would penalize these same deviants for copying an artist within the community--who discovers it and complains about it--then we should be penalizing them for copying all artists, as all artists have legal rights to their works.
Having the practice works moved to their own little area of deviantART could be tolerated

Oh, the Dauntless Drace is the power in these waters, true enough, but there's no ship as can match the Interceptor Drace for speed.
