CopyCover is a PHISHING SITE!
There have been a TON of journals and statuses about a site called CopyCover lately...WHATEVER YOU DO
DO NOT GO TO THIS SITE. 
They're "selling" phone cases with stolen artwork on them, don't be fooled! They're using a Google images based search engine for these images, they aren't sellers, it's a bot! Any usernames you look up are automatically added to the site!
10/10 your art will be on the site
 DO NOT FILE A DMCA CLAIM OR GIVE THEM ANY KIND OF INFORMATION.


COPYCOVER IS A PHISHING WEBSITE.

If you have entered any info, emails, passwords or whatever...
CHANGE YOUR PASSWORDS AND ON THE SAFE SIDE RUN AN ANTIVIRUS SCAN!
This site is very similar to the site called PayPoster that was going around years ago, so CopyCover is basically PayPoster 2.0!
Please be careful, if someone tells you your artwork is "stolen"  and they direct you to a site outside of dA or any big social media site...IT'S A BIG RED FLAG!

Do not go there
It was brought to my attention that there is a another WallPart-like site which "steals people's art and sells it". The thing about such sites is that not only are they full of viruses, they're actually elaborate phishing schemes, and the way they work is that they use a bot which uses search engines, meaning that if you type someone's dA username there it will appear as if their artwork was being sold there. They use this tactic to lure people into filling in the Copyright Violation or DMCA forms, and then they use those user-provided e-mails to flood the said users with spam.
Avoid visiting such sites in general, do not fill any Copyright Violation or DMCA forms on such sites, and if you have visited it run a virus scan and restart all of your devices.

Avoid CopyCover.Com!
I've been looking on DA and I've been seeing journal after journal and each one says they have peoples are on there- I made the mistake of going there and seeing if mine was there and--- my I love you platonically piece was there! and that wasn't what peeved me off! My friend ToyDKFazbear had artwork there too! That angered me beyond belief! Now I am gonna just say this: DONT REPORT THEM OR GO TELL THEM OFF! if you do, they may put viruses on your computer and ETC. The sites been downed before and it will again and probably permanently this time so PLEASE dont ruin your stuff just to scream at them. 
Love you guys and I'm tryin' to keep helpin'

DANGER: DO NOT CLICK 'COPYCOVER.COM' LINKS!!!
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE STAY SAFE EVERYONE!!!
Apparently something has been going around about a site that is stealing certain art from Deviantart and other art browsers. This site is called copycover.com and people are linking the site and telling people to check or if they look they can see if their art is on there. I know these people aren't doing this to cause harm, but to spread the warning that art is being stolen, and so many people have had theirs stolen... However, even by linking the site they can be potentially causing harm to people who view their journals!
According to many people, it's thought that this is being used as a phishing site. They are probably taking random images from artists so that the artists will go to the site to check and contact them about it or report them. This can cause serious issues if any of those steps requires personal information!!! Also, even just clicking and loading the site could potentially leak info to them and download malwar

Avoid Copycover.com and other phishing sites
It was brought to my attention that my art, and many others, is being "sold" on a site called copycover. It's been around for awhile under different names, always re-appearing even after being taken down. It's also not the only website like this but it is the newest one floating around.
Sites like this are a phishing scam. The more you search something (for example, an artist's handle) the more the site will try to "sell" things that have been uploaded by that person. 9/10 times these sites are not selling your art though, it's all an elaborate scam to get you to use the site by searching for your art(or anything under your username(s)) while bots gather personal data on you. It's possible for these sites to give your computer a virus as well.
More on them here and why you shouldn't file DMCAs or engage with the site(or similar) at all.

Do not go to these sites and search yourself up. Avoid and ignore them, it'

CopyCover.com
this isn't something that i normally post but i've saw a status message about this and i kinda want to get it out of the way because artists are likely in danger for this cheap knockoff of a site. this is gonna be a lengthy post so you may want to sit tight if you're reading this.
now, i'm pretty sure it's not unheard of that some sites are stealing art from DA, and CopyCover.com is no exception. basically, it's trying to profit off of peoples art on here by selling iphone cases of their work without even bothering to ask them for permission. i'm pretty sure this kind of stuff its old news since they (or some other site) did this years ago but the fact they're still doing this baffles me. you would have thought that they would have wised up and stopped but no, it's like the Phoenix of theft or something, not to mention i don't get the reasoning for actually buying their cases.

EDIT: DELETED THE LINK. IT'S A PHISHING SITE, DO NOT GO TO IT, SEARCH YOURSELF ON IT OR WORRY. NOTHING IS BEING SOLD OR TAKEN, IT'S JUST A WAY TO GET VIRUSES. FOR MORE INFO, READ THE COMMENT DOWN THERE!!
OKAY SO I NORMALLY DONT MESS WITH THIS STUFF BECAUSE I DONT KNOW HOW TO HELP BUT NOW ITS EFFECTING ME TOO NOW AND MY IGNORANT ASS IS WONDERING WHAT THE FUCK I NEED TO DO TO HELP PUT THIS SITE DOWN??
Because, um, they have my stuff on there. And its commissions too which is almost more horrifying than if it was personal art. It's OLD stuff but I made that shit for people?? Regardless of the quality I really hate that it's up there. 
SPEAKING OF: 
- The coms listed on the fucking site are for Nindox3 and Nonksoit so the characters aren't even owned by me
- They also have stolen art from Reilon242 and DelphoxError (two friends of mine) as well as SO many other artists if you haven't seen these warnings already since a LOT of people are talking about it right now...

Another Massive Art Theft. (UPDATE)
I just went on to this site and looked up my name and the names of a bunch of other deviants as well.
 http://copycover.com/. Chances are if you have artwork on here then Copy Cover has decided to sell
The images you've made for celphone cases. I don't know about you, but I am a little ticked that someone 
Is making money from my images and I had no idea about it. And I know I'm not the only one. 
(UPDATE)
You may have noticed that recently when you now look up the name of a deviant be 
It yourself or someone else you will be relieved to see 
That nothing comes up. As it turns out Copy Paste was a Phishing site which means that those who 
Were in charge of it knew what they were doing when they raised the ire of those who 
Filed complaints against the website. Basically if you contacted the website you ended up getting 
A virus. The people running Copy Cover were counting on artists not letting
Go of the fact that someone had stolen their stuff a

Be aware of really bad art theft.
I just... am kind of mystified by this...
mostly because why would anyone want shitty iphone cases of my old fantroll artwork anyway??????????
Ok so long story short there's a website stealing our artwork for iphone cases??????? and it's not even my good stuff????????? or anyone elses???????? why????? I'm both mystified and insulted because if you're gonna steal my stuff can you at least please make an attempt? I fucking... what???
also maybe learn to crop things my dudes? Guys please I don't understand. Please don't buy from these people for obvious reasons. But also share in how mystified I am by how bad these crops are of my dumb, bad, old artwork that I don't understand why anyone would want to make phone cases out of(fun fact, if you wanted me to design you a phone case for a character, I'd totally be willing to do it.)

Art Theft Is Happening (PLEASE READ)
Hey, guys! I don't normally make journals like this and I'm not interested in making it a habit, but this is important.
There's a website that has been stealing a TON of people's artwork and selling it on phone cases. It seems like it's using bots to grab art at random, as the products are literally just called the file names and still have the usernames of the people they're stolen from.
I don't know if anyone's actually buying these, but I wanted to give you guys the chance to make sure your art isn't being taken and sold without your consent.
http://copycover.com/
Here's the website; you can search for your username and you'll be able to find all the pieces they may have taken from you or your favorites. If you'd like you can report the pieces for copyright and ask them to take it down, but dO SO WITH CAUTION THIS SEEMS RATHER SKETCHY PUTTING IT LIGHTLY. THERE'S A HIGH CHANCE THERE ARE VIRUSES ON THIS WEBSITE SO PLEASE BE CAREFUL
I have no idea how to write a PSA but pLEASE STAY SAF

PSA: Art Theft/Phishing Scam
So I've seen this going around and I want to get it out there, but there's a site that's going around and taking pictures off of DeviantArt and selling them on phone cases. The site is called copycover but you guys should probably avoid it because after doing some research it looks like it is most likely a phishing scam. 
Best thing to do is just ignore it. Don't go check it out to see if your art has been stolen, and definitely don't enter any personal information (ie. your email) to try and get your art taken down. 
If you've already been on the site and entered personal information, then I'd recommend running a malware scan on your computer (idk if there's a better course of action because I'm not exactly an expert on these kinds of things, but running a scan is probably better than doing nothing). 
There's a journal here that has some more helpful information. 

Please be careful, and be safe.

Art theft for a living
UPDATE2: I was informed, that it might just be a pishing site, targeted not to actually sell anything, but to spread, so people will enter their email and possibly even other personal details, to get their art taken down.
Read the following journal for more information:

As you were! Stop reporting and don't givem any information or email adresses.
UPDATE: The one piece of mine, that was on their site, has been taken down in a matter of minutes, after I reported it. Try your luck, guys. Report away~
https://copycover.com/
Yet another site, that thinks taking images from a "third party search engine", doesn't break copyright laws. Good thing I have a lawyer at hand~
There's lotsa art, from all over the place. A few of my friend's art is there, mine is there, and generally, everything on their site is being used without the knowledge, or permission, of the original artists.
