I guess some of you might have already seen this in `loish
's journal, but I think we should spread this around.
Basically, this community is using a BUNCH of artists' works (my has already been taken down, since I've asked and linked to it), but from those I've recognized the community still uses `loish
and a whole lot of other DA artists' drawings for their purposes, without A SINGLE CREDIT.
They even make (made) magnets for selling using the works.
More of that, as I've been trying to contact the admins of this group, and I've been told that "Oh, don't worry, nobody was making millions using your work" and "Don't worry, there were only a few magnet sells and the community doesn't do it anymore blah blah". As I tried to make them understand they have NO RIGHTS for using other deviants' works whatever the hell they want without giving the original artist credit I got told that " I do never erase the artist's signature if there is such and some of the artists even thanked me for spreading their works into the media blahblah". Sincerely?
My drawing had NONE credit. `loish
's drawing? NO credit as well. *Apofiss
The one drawing of `alicexz
) got the signature erased as well.
It just pisses me off SO MUCH I fucking can't with them.
The community violated the whole paragraph 6.1 in the rules about Intellectual properties.
BUT the problem is, I still don't know who to report them to.
Please, if you happen to see familiar artist's work, let them know. It really pisses me off to no end, especially when I seem to be able to do nothing about it.
For now, at least.
If you understand Russian, please help to get them down. They have 700k followers while not even crediting the original artists.
sorry for drama queen mode.
