Anti art theft stamp01 by annie252 Anti art theft stamp01 by annie252
I'm addicted to dA stamps.
But this one is definitely for a good cause... art theft is such a problem on the internet. An annoying one at that.

Dedicated to =asianrabbit, who just got two of his amazing deviations ripped... I hope the best for him, and all those artists who've had ripped images.

created in photoshop CS2 and imageready CS2
comments, critique & :+fav:'s are appreciated!

NOTE: Hey, thanks for all the support on this stamp! Over 500 :+fav:'s! (whoa.) Thank you, and keep spreading the knowledge about the problem!

Is drawing a picture based off someone else's art theft? As long as you don't copy everything completely? 
spriterguy67 Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
if a decent amount is changed then it's not technically art theft.

I support art theft.


Because I can't draw Manga/Anime.

And not everyone can draw effectively right away. That's alright though, because that means we all have different talents. However, stealing artwork and defacing it is still wrong. You can still try and/or get someone to help you out. There's always a hope to learn how to draw better, even if you never become a da Vinci.

Oh my gosh, you "art theif hunters" are so imature, you cause DArama. 
It's not THAT bad, some people use other's art, big frickin deal, it's none of your beeswax.
Quit minding the rules and have a lil fun every once in a while.

But when they steal your artwork, upload it to the EXACT SAME SITE, and say it's theirs, it's my beeswax.

That's right. Copyright is what people incorrectly mention by "art theft". Also, not all copyright policies prevent people from sharing art around the web. There is also Creative Commons.

I'm going to put this on my deviantID, if that's okay with you. :D Derp

Here's one thing I shall say to those pesky art thieves: "RESPECT OUR PROPERTEH!!"
It's a way of saying, "respect the copyrights!"

You deserve another fave.

Everyone, please respect the GOD DAMN FUCKING COPYRIGHT!!!!!! :iconangryplz: ART THEFT IS A FELONY ON THIS DAMN SITE. Tracing is for God damn people that can't fucking draw!
FoxFargo Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I know this one girl, she cannot draw. I have known her for years, and from one day going from plain characters to full-on anime characters, I got suspicious. It's not ever her style! Here are her art pieces, if you find any of them similar to another drawing, please tell me or report her yourself. PLEASE DO NOT FLAME HER.


This one is traced off hetalia, and yet she calls it her own character: [link]

Clothing seems to be traced: [link]

TRAced with added stuff and was digitalized: [link]

:iconcryforeverplz: HELP ME PLEASE! She is my best friend, but tracing art is not right!

Good one. As someone who's had their work stolen (several times, actually,) I find it irritating when someone claims something I did as my own.
ZeroHourNineAM Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
I don't get the point of stealing art. Does it feel good to get attention for sth you haven't even done by yourself?

May I use this on a Horse SIM game called howrse? :)

It's basically a family-friendly facebook with horses. Art theft is a BIG problem there. I had a picture of my horse up on my page, with (c) symbol to me and someone took it, colored over my name and replaced it with theirs!!!! D:< Then on their page they said, "This is my very own horse! DON'T STEAL!"
spriterguy67 Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Link/download or whatever to game? it sounds awesome.
JavaThePsychopath Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Search it up. Howrse. I tried playing it a while ago and forgot, but basically you look after horses and breed them and that. It's cool.

Great stamp! A stupid makeup website called stole a deviation of mine for a makeup tutorial. Obviously, they didn't realize how small of a world this is. I'm asking them to take it off their site, I can't stand my work being stolen. Great stamp!

great added on my front page :-)
intelligenceice Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2010
Great stamp with a simple message. :| Honestly, I think it'd be great if the message were actually spread, because some wouldn't stop to think about whether what they're doing is wrong or not. :noes:

Which is the font for "think"? It looks really cool. o.o
