First of all, I’ve calmed down now after drawing some angry Karkats.
Here I have a screenshot of a note about sourcing art in their fb page.
This is their rebuttal, but it doesn’t make sense to me. I already gave a correct source in the argument we had, with no chance of it being stolen, and yet the artist themselves have to be obligated to confirm this? Apparently my arguments were shot because they don’t check individual tumblr accounts. Or just do a check on the page if they indeed draw it. Too much work, they said? Not to mention they were being unnecessarily rude about it. Ugh.
Why can’t we all get along and just give credit to the right people before posting ugh.
I actually couldn’t resist and had to comment on this person’s page: “No, you aren’t an art thief. You’re just a person who hasn’t got the decency to be responsible for the things they post. The artists who you don’t credit provide you with the content that has given you those 2000+ followers. Curating your site properly involves checking for sources. The artists aren’t getting anything from you posting their work unsourced, and clearly you don’t have permission to re-post their art, so all I’m seeing is a lazy person who’d rather come off like huge ass as opposed to doing the right thing and using common sense.”
But apparently, they delete comments, so I’m not holding my breath for any change. Hope that more artists know about this. It’s a pity that they always have to be on the defensive because of people who do things like this.
I’m just gonna leave this here: http://mason.gmu.edu/~montecin/copyright-internet.htm
The OWNER/manufacturer/creator of the work CAN:
- copy the work.
- create derivative works based upon the work.
- sell, rent, lease, lend copies of the work.
- publicly perform literary, musical, dramatic, motion picture and other audiovisual works.
- publicly perform sound recordings.
It is not necessary to have a notice of copyright (i.e.: © 1997 Jane Doe) for material to be copyright protected in the U.S. Once something tangible is produced, text, graphics, music, video, etc., it is automatically copyrighted. Sound recordings and some other property use other copyright symbols. Anyone can use the copyright symbol on her or his original work.
What is protected on the WWW?
- original text
- […]and all other unique elements that make up the original nature of the material.
When creating a Web page, you CAN:
- Link to other Web sites. [However, some individuals and organizations have specific requirements when you link to their Web material. Check a site carefully to find such restrictions. It is wise to ask permission. You need to cite source, as you are required to do in a research paper, when quoting or paraphrasing material from other sources. How much you quote is limited.]
- Use free graphics on your Web page. If the graphics are not advertised as “free” they should not be copied without permission.
When creating a Web page, you CANNOT:
- Put the contents of another person’s or organizations web site on your Web page
- Copy and paste information together from various Internet sources to create “your own” document. [You CAN quote or paraphrase limited amounts, if you give credit to the original source and the location of the source. This same principle applies to print sources, of course.]
When in doubt consult the law. It’s pretty clear this is a violation.
