I dunno if it's just me being a slowpoke or not, but there seems to be an increase in Art Thefts these days! A lot of people on Tumblr have been posting about it, talking about thefts mainly from artists on Pixiv.com - who live in Japan and mostly use Japanese websites as opposed to western ones - and recently, even here on DA! What's going on, people? They always get found out and taken down by the users, so what's the point in stealing others' work? Seems pointless to me.

This isn't isolated to DeviantArt, though. I noticed some people on Quizilla reposting a couple of my friends' work and quickly alerted the original writers. Try as we might, we couldn't persuade the reposter to take down the works so we had to report the situation to the Quizilla moderators. The reposter's account was deleted and banned from Quizilla.

So I ask you. What's the point in stealing art and stories if you know you'll get banned in any case? No matter how much you want to be like some people, stealing from them only makes them angry at you. You're driving away all of your role-models. And you /WILL/ get taken down.
