Art Theft: your [copy] right and responsibility!People are often concerned with online art theft and it's usually one the main reason artists are nervous about posting their artwork online: "What if someone steals my work and claims it as their own?" Worse still, "What if they sell it and make money from my work?"

Gallery Info: Stock Images
Stock Photography which the provider has granted a licence for incorporation into other Deviant artists work.
By submitting work into the stock and resources galleries, be they a photograph of your cat, a pack of brushes you have created, a texture you have developed, or a tutorial you've spent weeks resea
Art Theft And Hot Linking With WDWParksGalMy dear friend WDWParksGal, formerly a Community Volunteer, recently discovered that one of her deviations was being "high jacked", or the proper used termed, "hot linked". This is a very serious issue that not only affects the deviant, but also deviantArt. We have been overwhelmed with this issue the last few weeks causing many stock providers and too many manipulators to change the way they handle their deviations and sites. A few have emptied their gallery and left dA completely.Art Theft And Hot Linking With WDWParksGal by thefantasim
Since I had the opportunity, I asked her if she would like to write an article concerning this matter, and she jumped at the chance! So following is WDWParksGal thoughts on this situation.
I have been creating Photomanipulations for about six-years now. I have learned a lot, not just by experimenting with my PhotoShop Elements Programs that I have purchased over the years, but by watching YouTube tutorial videos, talking to other Manipulators, reading
