The Suits Anti-Reposting Campaign has begun.
Due to the overwhelming amount of reposts floating around in the Suits tags, a campaign has been launched in defense of the graphic makers and artists who create these works of art.
Suits Reposts is dedicated to both educating people about reposting and putting an end to reposting itself within Suits fandom.
In order to prevent false accusations, all reposts will be verified before being reblogged. There will also be a link to the original post so that any users can reblog the original graphic (any reposted graphic you’ve reblogged by accident should immediately be deleted).
If at all possible, all reposters will be notified and given a chance to delete their posts before they are added to the blacklist. Hostile replies to these notifications will result in the reposters name automatically being added to the blacklist.
There will also be a notification post at least once a week with the URLs of reposters; these users should be immediately added to your ignore list.
If you repost graphics because you don’t know the source, there are links and information on the front page of the blog that show you how easy finding a source is.
If you are an artist who is reposted (be it once or multiple times), please let us know immediately by dropping us an ask or submitting the url of your original post via submit. The reason for this is that there is a database of reposted graphics that your artwork will be added to, therefore ensuring that we can deal with any reposting immediately. We can also help you with finding the necessary links to have any reposts removed from WeHeartIt or Tumblr. In addition, any information about trademarks or signature details you use in your graphics is wanted in order to help identify reposts.
Reposting is wrong. It’s artistic theft, it’s plagiarism, and we’re not going to tolerate it any more. Neither should you.
