Art stealing site

:icontaschasan:

:iconmery98ist: discovered this [link] website and even complained about it in her journal : [link]
Excerpt:
Step 1.)Go to the website

Step 2.)Fine search

Step 3.)Type your username of DA

Step 4.)There is your art they may have taken and place on there website

Yes, I know that it basically works like Google, BUT the BIG difference: There is NO link to the ORIGINAL upload. Which bothers nearly all of the users affected. (myself included)

Can DA do something against this site? Do I have to go to the helpDesk?

dA cannot do anything against it, mainly because it's off site. deviantART doesn't own your submissions so the copyright is still yours, so it's up to you to take legal action if your copyrights were infringed.
Please see our Need Help? thread when you need help with dA :)

Must be a bot uploading all those pictures because they've also got all of my doodles in the drawplz forum.

Not that I care, or anything.

also, there are lots of shitty deviants on there too. I don't believe it to be an art stealing site, :lol:

Holy ... they have some of my worst crap! :lol: But it isn't really stealing, it is more like a feature. "Here is some of DeviantArtName's wonderful work:"

I believe there was already thread about this place. I figure it's like one of those places that just regurgitates links and references to hundreds of other places. I've seen that a lot with my music, same goes for the art. I don't think much of it because thousands of deviants can be found there.
