How to report art theft on dA by Stock-By-Crystal How to report art theft on dA by Stock-By-Crystal
EDIT:
PLEASE READ THE COMMENTS AS WELL!!! There are a lot of good suggestions from other crusaders on how to crush the bug we call art thieves.

I was recently asked by a new member of #Doombringers how to report images.

Instead of going into the details, I thought I would make a tutorial on how to do it for people new to deviantART who are looking to make it a better place for everyone else.

This tutorial goes over just how to report for theft, but as you can see, there are many different things on deviantART that need reporting.

If you need any help with other categories to report, please do not hesitate to ask.

If you also need to find a link to another place a deviation is posted, use TinEye to find other places that it could be posted, that way deviantART will delete the offending images.

Not sure if any of this stuff is his. I only recognize a few images that I know for a fact aren't his.

Out of curiosity do you know how to report a person who has stolen art from deviantart, but is posting the stolen works on twitter?

Isnt this dude just stealing art? ------> ahmedmofree1996.deviantart.com…

Its very hard to prove it since I cannot find original pieces, but i think his style in gallery is too inconsistent, and he has been here only for 4 weeks..? Plus he's got not comments on deviations whatsoever.

I was just about to bring up this guy myself. I've done reverse image searches but as you said it's difficult to find the originals but the pieces in question are all over other websites from months/years ago. I've tried reporting one of his latest pieces but I don't know what will come of it since I don't have concrete proof.. =/

Neither do I!
At first I just thought they were using DA as a place to post art they like (without giving credit, nice one!) because they actually admit on the profile that none of the art posted is theirs but then at the same time accept every comment and bit of praise as if they were the original artist.
It's just baffling, especially when it's so obvious ;_;

Definitely not cool posting an artist's work without credit or permission no matter how big or small they are!
