deviantART admins demand people stop talking about art theft – note that the page has several screens worth of solid evidence of willful art theft, which is apparently too abstract for the dA admins to comprehend.
The funny part here is that they’re letting a well-documented art thief continue breaking international copyright law, using their site, but calling the people talking about it names; in fact, there’s more name-calling going on in the admin note than there is in the journal entry complained about.
In short, DeviantART doesn’t take art and property rights seriously. They’re not about that. They have just given a big “fuck you” to anyone who has problems with having their art ripped off.
If you’re looking for a place to host your art, maybe this is not that place.
