www.change.org/en-IN/petitions… <-- Sign here and pass this link to your friends/watchers.

It's true. Type in your username and deviantART next to it and you will find that even the images that you LITERALLY disabled to "Members Only" and "NO sharing/downloading"(like mine that I Always Do + Watermark), you'll still find your art on there which can get stolen. So I'd recommend you to pass this around and sign it too or something to stop such thievery.


--------

In other news, anybody remember this old journal entry of another art-theft website?: ancientechidna.deviantart.com/…
They would SELL YOUR ART AND MAKE PROFIT FOR THEMSELVES.

Now, I'm not sure if that website is still active or doing anything about our own art, but I suggest to also keep an eye out on your art there.

Signed as I dislike art thieves. If I find any of my art stolen, the hunt to bring them down will begin.

Indeed, I agree with you.

I don't understand why people steal. Everyone is capable of drawing. Either good or not at all. That is why the saying, "Practice makes perfect", came into existence for those to practice to become good at art.

True that. I just wish there wold someday soon be a way to not be able to copy and paste or save images they see or use a "Snipping Tool" that allows them to copy parts of the pictures they want, etc.
It would be much nice if they have some anti-thief tool/blocking the save pictures thing or anything really to help stop art-thieves a little better.

It be nice to have a feature like that. However, the problem is that there be those who will find another way around it.

I know. You can only stop some which seems to be mostly those at the age of 10 to 14.

No no no no NO! This is NOT good at all! If ANYONE steals my art- I will hunt... them... DOWN! It won't do at all... stealing from a sort of God! I might turn them into a puddle, or a bad idea, I might make them fall in love with a cloud, or bite their finger nails off.
