Yeah, nothing will probably be done about it, but gonna rant anyways. Lol
Am I the only one bothered by the fact that there are so many people coming onto the site and basically posting work that is not their's? It seems like when I get to looking around I'll spot a thumbnail and be like "Oh! This looks like a nice drawing!" only to find out that the person didn't actually draw it. Usually it's clips from shows, published manga, or official art from a game.
It wouldn't be so bad if getting noticed here wasn't bad enough as is, but then you have people uploading a clip of their favorite hentai on here, further drowning out other artists into the sea that is DA.
What's worse is that there's nothing you can do about it, for the most part. Last I checked, you can't report the person unless they are stealing YOUR work. Which I can understand that this was probably put into effect to ward off those people who'll report just under the suspicion that someone is an art thief. However, now people posting art from famous professionals is going more rampant. And let's face it, the person who owns the rights to an anime isn't going to be reporting people here.
So what you're left with is talking to the person who's posting copyrighted material. I'm not big on confrontations and have first hand experience on how people can get when you tell them they shouldn't be doing something....So needless to say that I'm not really a fan of that.
So...Yeah! It's like the wild west of art sites. Lol. It makes me appreciate sites like Hentai foundry (I am a hentai artist) because they have quality control and a team to control art theft.
Anyways. Thoughts? More rants? I feel better lol
