Art Theft (UPDATE)

Journal Entry: Thu Dec 20, 2012, 6:33 PM
The Important Stuff

This website (www.dramakoreaterbaru.com) is running a script bot that uses a search-engine like program to find your art and post it without your permission, and sometimes without any credit. There have been reports that posting your name into the search engine actually facilitates the script bot into finding your art. I don't know if that's true. There have also been reports that the ads on these image pages are rife with virus' / malware. There's also reports that these ads are being used to make money and drive traffic through the domain in order to make money off of you.  I urge everyone NOT to use this site. Instead send your complains to:

You can also complain to his hosting company:

UPDATE Apparently the hosting has been moved to Atlushost, but according to my DA sources, they have a reputation for not being cooperative. :/

Here is a sample formal DMCA take-down notice geared towards service providers that you may use:




More Important Stuff

I would suggest that if you've already searched through the site for your name that you send a take-down notice to the people/company listed above. Otherwise, STAY OFF THE SITE in order to protect yourself. PLEASE DO NOT COMMENT HERE unless you have important information on the site that you think needs to be in this journal, OR you have a question.  My inbox is getting swamped with irate messages from various deviants, and while I totally understand your anger guys... I don't want to read it. It makes it very hard to get to the important comments! Thank you.

Seeing this makes me think you may be interested in Deviant-Defense group. We are dedicated to finding and eliminating the websites that mass-steal artwork (like AxSoris) I even take the extra step of legal action to make the people pay for what they've done (be it fines or jail time).

deviant-defense.deviantart.com

If I'm wrong about your potential interest, sorry to have bothered you. Either way, I'll add this site to the list of targets.

I believe it may have been taken down at this point, I've had two reports spread out over two weeks that people can't get in ^^ We may have won.

it may be that they've taken it down already, I haven't checked back in awhile. No one's brought me a new host yet, so I assume they haven't switched yet.

Well, I'm glad I'm enough of a loser to not have had anything stolen yet, at least. I guess being unpopular has its advangates.
