anonymous asked:

Hey is there any trade marking or disclaimers about how my comics are my intellectual property i should put on my comics before selling them at cons and posting them online? What Is the best way for me to protect my stuff when starting out? What do you guys out in your books?

Kiriska: As previously mentioned, all work you create automatically belongs to you. 

Registering your copyright or trademarking titles, names, etc, are merely tools that can help you enforce that copyright if need be, but they are not required, and they don’t prevent theft from happening in the first place, necessarily.

I generally think prominent watermarks are about the best you can do when posting work online. Again, the work already belongs to you. Any additional note like “ © 2017 Kiriska” is really just a reminder to the general public and a mild deterrent. Unfortunately, #art theft is always going to be a risk.

anonymous asked:

Would you be okay with people writing fic based on your art?

Plagiarism (bad!! not legal!)

- no permission from the creator

- uncreative variation of the original work

- incorporates all of preexisting work and nothing else


Derivative Work with legal protection

-permission from the creator; (or the original work falls under public domain.)

-significant new expression

- incorporates some or all preexisting work

- it is not required by law for you to require a notice of copyright (you don’t need to write ‘based on ____ by _____’ 

- follows creator’s rules

If you are interested in writing something based on what i drew, please message me privately, because I can’t give permission to anonymous users

If you message me without anon, I will not post my reply!! I consider it a private conversation, but anon means that you’re okay with me answering publicly.

My ask box and messaging is open, and I believe I put my email in my description if you are not a tumblr user… somehow.

We Can’t Let John Deere Destroy the Very Idea of Ownership
It’s official: John Deere and General Motors want to eviscerate the notion of ownership.

The idea is this: You buy a tractor that runs their software, and (the way they see it) therefore you don’t actually own the tractor. They do. Because software.

(SIDE EYE)

Read it and see if your brain doesn’t turn right around in your skull at the “logic”.
