Keeping dA in the Hands of Artists"I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do."Keeping dA in the Hands of Artists by RoninFox
With these words in mind, it's time for us deviantART members to do something about the spreading problem of art theft.
For those who don't know what art theft is: It's when someone claims that he/she made an artwork, when the artwork was actually done by someone else. It's becoming quite common these days.

Tracing for some peoples are considered as FUN,TOLERATED,NORMAL.
But I am AGAINST it.Of course tracing can be fun,but WHY,just WHY do you upload it in dA?
Think about it,dA is an ART website,not some TRACING website.
You don't believe me?
You LOVE traces?
Then let's compare these situations:
-When you trace someone's artwork without their permission or not,it is considered as fraud.
You don't believe it?Then read the below:
If as well you considered trace as legal then what if...
-When you copy someone's homework without their permission or not,it is considered as fraud.
