Art Theft Alert

Journal Entry: Mon Dec 17, 2012, 3:34 PM
Skin by SimplySilent

Saw this on :icondarlingmionette:'s journal here:  Art Theft.

Went to this website: Korean Drama and typed in my username, and sure enough, they've gone and nicked some of the stuff from my profile.  Of course, they put who the artist is and what site it's on, which I suppose is crediting, but really, they should have told us they were doing this, yes?

Have a look and see if you find yourself on there.

The problem here, as :icondarlingmionette: says, is that there's really no clear linking or crediting to the original artist going on. Yes, it generally says by "such and such" on deviantart, but some of the longer usernames get cut-off halfway through.  Also, there are places where you can "leave a comment" for the artist...which leads to another problem, being WE--the original artists--won't be notified when someone comments on our artwork on that site--only the host will get notified.  And that's problematic.

If you'd like to complain, you can find the proper authorities to send a note to in :icondarlingmionette:'s journal.


EDIT--There are twelve days left to get me as many Poetry suggestions as you can! :squee:


Hey, all!

I've been SO busy working this week, and won't have time to slow down until after Christmas is done and over with.  SO--I'm looking for suggestions for poetry to feature over at :icondailylitdeviations:!

Just a reminder, the guidelines as outlined by :icondailylitdeviations: are as follows:

:bulletblue: Only one suggestion per note please. If you'd like, send me a short (3-4 sentences) description on why you feel the piece deserves to be featured.

:bulletblue: Please write "DLD Suggestion" in the subject line of your note.

:bulletblue: Please do NOT suggest the same piece to multiple DLD admins.

:bulletblue: DLD does not accept fan fiction; don't send me suggestions of fan fiction.

And MY guidelines are:

:bulletblue:I am a Poetry Admin. Please only send me poetry suggestions!

I'M GOING to make this into a contest!  It will last for the next two weeks; the person who sends in the most pieces that I choose to use for features--READ AGAIN: I will only count the pieces I'd actually feature--will win a drawing akin to either this piece I did recently:

Butterflies by TwilightPoetess

OR like my Disney faeries series:

Tigger Faerie by TwilightPoetess
Piglet Faerie by TwilightPoetess

SO--Send me your suggestions!! Please?

Hmm...I'm a literature and photography artist, but all I saw was some of my favorites - as in, all the images that came up were images that I have favorited on this site...
TwilightPoetess Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah. I'm not sure if they were using a program to find the images, but it seems there's a risk of virus if you delve too deeply into the site. :shrug:

Yeah I didn't go to far but I hope you're right that they closed the site down!
TwilightPoetess Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I hope so, too.

thank you for the heads up!! Only my default picture is there from what I could tell (?)

Did anyone else get like a thousand pop-ups on this site after searching?
TwilightPoetess Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I didn't get pop ups, no, but I know that =DarlingMionette was warned about the potential for viruses on the site.

Whaaaaaat? I never thought I'd be pirated. Me? Sure enough. Down with the Korean pirates!
TwilightPoetess Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
The site has been taken least, that's what =DarlingMionette said in a journal update. Is it still there?
mellowghost Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Following the link still pulls up their website :-/
