Just a question about icons: 

63%
19 deviants said It's not okay because they didn't pay for it. They can only use it if they get permission from both the customer and artist.
27%
8 deviants said It's okay to do that since it's a canon character and not an OC or something personal.
10%
3 deviants said No. I will not tell you any names. If you figure it out for yourself please keep quiet as well. I want to know because I want to know and not because I'm a drama prince.

No deviants said Story: I saw someone use an icon that was commissioned by someone else. They asked the artist but not the one who paid for it.

Personally I think its a no-no. If someone commissioned it, they need the Artist and commissioners permission. 
I need to know the drama babe! Tell me who it is so I know, I won't say anything though.

When I was younger I used to just google my fav charas up and put their pic into my icon on forums without really thinking that it might be made by someone. So yeah, it probably was stupid to do but there were no bad intentions behind it at least. Maybe it's a similar situation here with that commissioned icon, I don't know.

There was no ill intent but it doesn't matter anyway. I'm curious how the community sees things like this. I couldn't find anything like this about icons in the forum or FaQ.
