I am sure most of you have come across this - a picture taken off the net and uploaded as a deviation here in dA. Most times, the deviant claims it as their own art, rejecting all evidences to the contrary, until dA takes it down. You have seen that, yes? At times, it appears that the deviant is not deliberately stealing art, but is acting in ignorance that such an act is copyright infringement.
This disturbing trend has recently become evident in submissions to our group's galley. Where it is obviously taken from the net, or from another dA account (because I have seen it!), it is declined with a comment that stolen art is not acceptable in

Hey everyone -
I didn't realize it had been so long since I gave you all an update. It's been a crazy two years to say the least.
I am still getting chemo but I am supposed to be done this October (woohoo!). I spent a lot of time in and out of the hospital. My last admission being in September of last year for a mysterious fever. My immune system is weak because of the chemo they have me on, so anytime I get a fever over 100.3*F I am supposed to go to the hospital and get admitted and given tons of antibiotics until it goes away.

I was diagnosed with Leukemia on June 23. I have been in the hospital getting treatment the last couple days and I was just started on Chemotherapy this morning. Due to my treatment, I will be pretty under the weather for a little while so I probably won't be on here much for the next month or so, dep

Also, if you have a few points you wouldn't mind getting rid of, there is a donation pool on my page above the comment section to help support our group contests. Prizes are small in our contests (15 points rewarded to 1st place winner only) so a small amount of points will go a long way :)
If you donate, you will get to choose any deviation in your gallery (keep it pg-13 please, no nudity) and it will be featured in the "Donations for Contests" journal below alon
