Copyright violation.......

:iconlastzonetrooper:

The user known as socalgooner70 appears to be posting works that are not his own. in almost all of the pictures posted, is the symbol and related link of DeniseMilani.com . Copyright infringement up front, this guy needs to be removed before he moves onto more frequent artists. if he is able to take these unmodified pictures off of the web and post them as his own, what is to prevent him from doing the same with another deviantart artists art? i just hope that other artists, premium members or not agree with this. either the art on his page needs to be removed, or he needs to be removed completely. furthermore, i would like to apologize for the last part of the comment i left on his page, was not my intention to make it sound like a serious threat, rather than a warning of epic proportions.

GL with that.
DA's gone and started making some serious FUBAR decisions lately where, unless reported by the copyright holder/original artist, they won't take action on these trolls.
and saying/doing anything about it yourself is grounds for a swift ban from the site.

go ahead, look it up. Tis why many are just moving out of DA and letting it become the next myspace.

glad i've nothing worth, nor capable of being, stolen...

Report to help desk, as others have said, and talk to the thief - maybe they don't know what they're doing is a violation of copyright law.

I dislike the attitude of "not your personal army". dA is a community, and we all have a duty to keep our community free of thieves. the staff is not the punishing god. the words of many most times drive off thieves better than staff action which may or may not be too late.

are you simply trolling me for the laughs or just to be a mean bitch? i already reported it thanks to some help gratefully given by another deviantart user. i did not know where to go and someone told me where to put in a report. if you actually go back and read, you will see that. respect others as you wish to be treated right? this is your respect tossed back your way.

i understand that. i found out about the help desk too late. i only said anything about it here because i didn't know where to go, hoping someone would be able to help out in the area of where the help desk was. someone sent me a link. so i apologize for this big mistake. i just didn't know where to go.

You should have learned about how to use the Help Desk immediately after getting an account on here.

Posting a forum, journal, or anything that calls them out for anything only helps their cause and make YOU look like a complete butthurt idiot.

Next time, you'll learn to just report the hell out of them and move on, rather than whine and bitch about what the said person have done to you.

Many reports don't make the people responsible for reading reports look into things sooner. It just leads to them reading the same thing over and over, and missing other things.

The help desk is slow as fuck. I got violation reports resolved messages ONE YEAR AND A HALF after I sent them. It's just too much volume for them, and I don't say it in a pejorative way - there are just too many users, and the staff can only do so much at a time.

I think the type of social justice that deviantart's user base seems to like, i.e. "take matters in our hands" way, is a good way to go about it. We need to take care of ourselves and each other on the site, and driving out thieves is one way to do so. I approve of the "pitchfork" method - we can't rely on the staff to take care of us as if we were small children.

Matter of fact, when I get home I'll make a detailed and argumentative thread about this, to gather more opinions.
