Ripped!

Sun Feb 19, 2006, 9:45 AM
Hey, got my stuff ripped for the first time here on deviantart! Ok, this had to happen. Anyway, I just will start watermarking my stuff, and that should pretty much solve it. Feels kinda weird, but I'm not angry... But people can be really stupid thinking they can post stff without anyone noticing! ;)

Edit: it seems deviantart has taken down the drawing. Thank you! It really was not serious. I think this person just thought deviantart was the appropriate place to post other people's drawings, just ot share them to other (this person never said that he had done the drawing, he just said he liked the character in the pic...)

Wow...that sucks! Well, that tells me I need to start watermarking my stuff too. ...Hmmm, not like anyone really wants to steal my stuff though. :D Ha! Seriously though, I think you handled the situation pretty well. Thanks for the heads up, K! :handshake:

I admire the way you're handling this. I've seen quite a few Makani ripoffs out there (I can spot them a mile away) and if it were me, I'd be out for blood... sounds like watermarking might not be a bad idea. At least they're not selling it for profit, right?

yup, indeed! frankly it could have been much worse... I was quite lucky with this one... I think this person didn't realise deviantart was not a site for posting other people's art (like on other blogs, where you can share art of others with people), it would heve been stupid for him to get banned if it only was a mistake. I once saw a girl who posted stuff on deviantart who wasn't hers, but said "look at this drawing, I find it very cool, hope you'll enjoy it too!" and never claiming it was her own... that's not real thievery, I think. And this is exactly what I think happened to me today.

It's actually sort of a compliment as long as they don't make any money off it. So, um, 'grats? Or should I grab my pitchfork and go to war for my friend Kyla here? ;)

Then it is the best of compliments. *puts down pitchfork and sings Kumbaya*

LOL, you know, you really are a nice person. That a good thing this day and age!

I've seen too many people getting stupidly banned simply because this kind of stuff caused so much drama... I don't want for people to go and insult this person, flame her and stuff... It's useless, especially if it was, as I think, a mistake. This person probably didn't know deviantart was not a place to post other people's art. It's like this girl, who posted screenshotsof her favourite anime, and just said "I find this really neat, what do you think" without claiming it her own. I think this is what happened to me...

Have you talked to her personally? I think this is a great opportunity to show someone the right way. You can show her what to do and what not to do. And from there, maybe a friendship will form.
