ART THIEF

:iconelalma:
elalma Dec 28, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
So this deviant ~LoveMyInspiration is an art thief. I told her to show respect for artists and don't steal art but she hid my comments instead. She also hid comments from other people who noticed that she stole photos. I'm writing here to spread the word about this art thief. Maybe she stole your works, check out her gallery.
I've reported her to the Help Desk. I've also reported some of her deviations. But it'll be a long process because of the holidays. Please help DA to get rid of this art thief.

It's good that you reported them :) If you want to help speed up the process, the best thing you can do is letting the copyright owners know, they can get it dealt with with high priority. Calling them out publicly is not the right way to go about this as you're only encouraging harassment. :lock:

Just had a thought (for everyone who reads this and wants to help out).

You can actually try and track down the original owner by Google searching the image. You can then link them to the page and encourage them to complain about the theft. dA will have to remove the image, or risk getting sued.

Right click image > copy URL > Google Images > click little camera icon > paste > search

You made a really good point! I've already found several owners and I'll try to let them know

I've reported her to the Help Desk.

And that's all you should have done. Posting about it here isn't really going to help get anything done any faster, as none of us here can do much more than what you did :thumbsup: Patience, my pet. Patience.

If someone broke into your house would you call the police or make a Complaints thread?
