deviantART: Crack down on Copyrights
This community has come together on many occasions to sign a petition to help a worthy cause. I never imagined something would have to be started because of a problem within deviantART.
If you haven't read the latest CEA Update, I'd suggest taking a look at it before you e-sign anything. I'm petitioning this revision because I think it's opening a door that will ruin this community.
Allowing members of deviantART to copy, trace, or duplicate any copyrighted artwork is giving a mixed signal to growing artists. Whether or not it's done with the intention of practicing, the act of submitting it into an official gallery here on deviantART is copyright infringement.
If we would penalize these same deviants for copying an artist within the community--who discovers it and complains about it--then we should be penalizing them for copying all artists, as all artists have legal rights to their works.
Having the practice works moved to their own little area of deviantART could be tolerated

With these words in mind, it's time for us deviantART members to do something about the spreading problem of art theft.
For those who don't know what art theft is: It's when someone claims that he/she made an artwork, when the artwork was actually done by someone else. It's becoming quite common these days. In particular, a lot of people have been uploading, copying or tracing copyrighted images (usually screenshots from anime and other TV shows, or pictures from comics and manga), and claiming that they "drew" the images. It is unfair to people who expend time, effort and creativity in producing their own art. It is also disrespectful to the original creators of the copyrighted images. Think about it: If you were a famous artist, would you be happy if someone took one of your artworks and said that h

I saw your comment on SFukuda's journal on Machina War Chronicles and was wondering if you'd be interested in looking over the novelization I'm doing for it.
