I'm not sure if you guys do outside DA but this is a big problem. This page on Facebook [link]
Is taking random artwork and not giving credit to the artists at all. A couple of people told this person in a reasonable way that they have to credit the artists. BUT the people of the page (and a few fans) were giving excuses saying that-Its the artists fault, they can defend themselves, its not stealing etc. But people dont know that their artwork is on there, so how can they complain?
And then made a post on their page making themselves seem innocent after giving these excuses. here is a couple of things that they said on Ameilia Cubes post: "Jake Jr the Rainicorn Pup: It's on the internet. It ain't stealing. lol.
"If the artist's truely wanted us to say they were the artists they would ask us to remove or tag them. Even so you dont need to make a deal out of it. If you dont like the fact that we take pictures off the internet then simply unlike the page. The artists of these pictures can stand up for themselves. So yeah, dont make a big deal out of it because its just not necessary, plus we are not saying that we are the artists.
Please stop this if you can thanks.
