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.

It saddens me to see so much theft... It's the main reason why I watermark a lot of my art now x.x

searchman1.deviantart.com/?off… This guy has been watching people and then threatening to unwatch/ steal their art if they don't give him points. What makes it worse is that he mocks the original artist in the description of the stolen art work...

Scout25 is also an art thief. He uses bases for his (shitty) mlp art and doesn't credit the original maker. He even claimed to be hacked to try and atone for the dact that he's an art stealing bitch

:iconmomo-candy: is an art thief. She's been reposting stuff from pixiv and claiming its her own. She's even denying and pretending she didn't steal it.
