'From net' - Speak up and be forever silenced!

:icontenebra:
Tenebra Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2012
Once upon a time, back in the days when the abominable copyright menaces still roamed the Earth, there lived a little young deviant who, despite his short existence - the poor weakling was only three weeks old -, seemed to be very proud of his magnificent feats. From sunrise to sunset, he would climb to his imponent pedestal and marvel his followers with images of great beauty, so impressive that everyone wondered where those could be coming from. Some stared in pure awe, others applauded him frantically and some... questioned him. 'From net', he said to the very few who dared speaking up. Such a confusing and vague answer that was... and from that day onwards those who tried questioning him again were given a single reply:

"We're sorry, but you cannot post a comment here"

... and that's the short tale of how free thinking men who shout against wrong doings can be forever silenced.

Now I question you, random deviants and moderators: Is 'from net' a valid excuse to post images that don't belong to you?

The deviant 'artist' from the this tale showed no intention neither to discuss this matter, nor to defend himself, after being called to attention. On the contrary, he disabled all comments, hid all those containing remarks to an alleged infringment of copyright laws, and finally blocked those users to prevent them from posting any 'harmful' criticism.

Around there there's an old saying according to which "He who owes nothing, fears nothing" but apparently this little one has a lot to fear...

So I ask you, what measures can be taken to prevent these recurrent situations?

Posting here won't achieve anything. Yes, it's wrong. If you really want to try and get them removed, report, and if that isn't enough for you, then contact the original artists.

Take a look then and see if it's just a few of us hallucinating or if 'his' images are indeed someone else's... You can start with the cute kitten that everyone loved so much:

hmm...it's a little odd that the downloadable image size is not that small..this suggest that he might have the original. But looking at the gallery as a whole..yes, it's very unlikely that he's such a multi-talented person (or lucky for the spontaneous shots)

Should he have defended his honour instead of blocking users and deleting all comments that mentioned art theft, and maybe I would have been na´ve enough to believe he could be innocent on this matter. But ok, now let's leave it for the help desk to judge.

He doesn't even hide the fact that the works aren't his, and yet he posts them.

You know, I wonder sometimes if the complete assholes who have no idea what they're doing around here even know how to respond to people's fucking comments because they occasionally make painful to read steaming pile of shit threads like these, and don't even answer any of the disappointed posters that opened up the topic.

Oh my god, I can just tell you think this horribly worded shit story of yours is something that's REALLY clever and is making some sort of thought provoking point in the wittiest way but fuck I couldn't stand to get past "from sunrise to sunset" unless you blew me.

Translation: Yet another deviant is posting shit that isn't his, and blocking anybody who calls him out on it. OP finds this complaintworthy.

That's why they've made a "Report" button, ya prick.

What is an imponent pedestal? Do you mean important or impotent or impudent?

So someone used your artwork without permission and you decided to express your frustration though prose.

After reading your post maybe I should make a clarification. It wasn't MY art being stolen. This deviant collects images from the web and posts them in his gallery. It doesn't seem to me that writing "from net" on a deviations' description is enough to justify using artwork that doesn't belong to him. Besides, imagine, for example, that one fine day you'd witness a bank robbery and could identify the people who did it. Would you shrug and do nothing about it, just because it wasn't your money being taken? Apathy can lead only to more situations like that one. Why not complaining? I believe it's both a right and a duty.

Do you know how to make paragraphs?

Report them and move on. That IS doing something about it -the only thing in your power to do. You are welcome to get all upset and throw a tantrum. But that wouldn't really accomplish anything. Choosing one's battles wisely and acknowledging one's limitations is not apathy. It's what separates the children from the adults.
