Now it happened: Some idiot here at DA stole one of my best pieces and submitted it here as his own work.
I just can't say how damn FURIOUS I am! It's not that I haven't stated out explicitly that I don't allow such a thing. In fact I wrote it under every single piece I've submitted here at DA. Are those people simply to stupid to read, or are they just ignorant?!
Of couse I've reported the thief immediately and hope that DA will delete the plagiarism as soon as possible. What angers me the most is the fact that the perky thief didn't just take my picture, no he also erased my watermark in the right corner! It's one thing to submit a piece, created by another person, it's another thing to alter it slightly and claim it as your own, but deleting the watermark is just criminal!
I'm almost sure he not just used one of my pictures for his gallery, but also has taken deviations from other people. So you should have a look at his gallery and make sure he didn't take something from you without your permission: himadesigner
If you recocnize a work from another deviant you know, please let her/him know so that she/he can report the thief in ordner to delete the picture from the thief's gallery. Thank you.
Because of the fact that he was able to simply delete my watermark, I was forced to make the watermarks on my pictures bigger. I'm sorry, I know that such a big watermark kind of ruins every piece, but I can't allow people to rip my art. And the latest incident proved that copyright notices and small watermarks simply don't keep crackbrained people from ripping
I also deleted the wallpapers. Sorry for all people who appreciated and used them as attire for their desktops; you can thank jerks like himadesigner, because they are responsible for big ugly watermarks and the disappearance of free goodies like wallpapers.
And now I'm gonna play some Dynasty Warriors with my boyfriend and kick some polygones ass to relief my anger! Good night.
