well, on the issue of inline linking, that is actually resolved. You CAN set your art to disallow inline linking on the submission page... just under where it has the check box for allowing comments, there is "Sharing settings" and if you click EDIT you can set it to not allow inline links.

well, it is not a complete cure for art theft, but it does make it harder for people to link your art all over the web :)

well, I just found out there is a way in deviantArt already to disable the inline linking, under sharing options on the submissions page, of course, disabling inline linking means nobody can feature a thumbnail of your work in their journals and only dA members can buy your prints. But if you want to stop other sites from linking to your work, you CAN disable the linking

lol, cool... I'm really hoping more people will pick up on this... I keep getting messages about it, and usually the people commenting have not bothered to read the stuff I've linked to understand the real dangers...

dA keeps trying to tell me (and I bet others too) that if our works are linked on other sites, we can file DCMA complaints to those sites or their hosts, but the truth is, the law ALLOWS inline linking, and the websites do NOT have to take down your art, or credit you, or anything, they can spit in your face and all you can do is bring charges for the spitting, you can't sue for the art theft, because its NOT considered theft.

I think dA must be making money off this somehow, because the ONLY reason they have given me for why they have to keep the inline linking is that "It makes it easier for artists to share their work on other sites" so I guess being able to hit a share button on facebook is more important than protecting our art? Gimme a break! When was the last time you saw the staff on dA do anything for OUR benefit?

On top of that, it wastes dA server bandwidth, every time somebody does an inline link to dA, that slows down dA's servers, every time anyone views the linked page! and it can leave dA open to phishing attacks! so why is being able to link easily on twitter or tumblr more important than all these disadvantages????? Gotta be money involved somewhere.

If it's okay with you I'll add a thumb of this to my submission/artist's comments going forward.

its totally fine to do that, I would love it if everyone posted it again, or added a button or made a stamp or any other way of getting it out there

GrahamSym has come up with a wonderful solution to the entire problem...dA can add a checkbox on the submissions page that says "allow inline linking" then each person can decide for themselves if they want to allow it or not...


hopefully dA admins will see the sense of this

That would be a wonderful addition to the submission page if DA will implement it! It may not stop all art theft but it will certainly curtail it!
I sent yet another "NASTY GRAM" to THAT site and they have deleted my 2 pieces!

weird, from what I was told yesterday, the owner had removed all dA art from the site except if it had been posted by an independent author as part of their own work...

Yeah, I keep hearing people say "It won't stop art theft" as if that excuses the whole issue... its like saying "a determined burglar will simply break a window to get into your house, so why lock the door?"

As I understand it we give deviantart the right to use our art on deviantart ONLY. We do not give deviantart the right to use our art on any other site.

In my opinion, even if the art has been removed they have broken the law. It is illegal to "borrow" or steal someone elses property without their consent, even for a second. Unfortunately everthing that we post on the internet (even after deletion) seems to be accessable somewhere. Fortunately this is proof if we want to sue them.

Can I use the works which I find on deviantART?
DeviantART possesses no ownership claim in any submission and cannot grant you any license or permission for use, only the artist may do so.

All original works found in the deviantART galleries are the copyrighted property of the submitting artist. If you want to use a work you will need to ask permission from the artist, who is free to set whatever terms and conditions they wish. You should always ask permission before using any work which was created by another artist.

To contact a member of deviantART, you may use whatever contact information the artist may have provided on their profile page, or you may send a personal note to the artist if you have your own deviantART account.

Stock submissions and certain submissions marked with a Creative Commons License already have certain terms and conditions attached and can be used without directly contacting the artist providing that you obey the rules set for each work (which may vary from work to work and from artist to artist).
