You glowered intensely at the cast that entrapped your leg, confining you to the bed unable to move  without a sharp pain creeping up your body. A pathetic whine fell from your lips as you shifted slightly, helplessly attempting to find a somewhat comfortable position given your impending circumstances. Huffing, you threw your head backwards onto the pillow, glaring at the ceiling and the fluorescent lights that were beginning to contribute to a painful headache mumbling incoherencies under your breath. However, despite your current predicament you couldn’t help but let a small smile adorn your lips as you thought back to the morning’s events involving a certain brooding soft super-soldier.

art theft in the phandom

This morning I woke up to several panicked messages from friends letting me know that somebody had tweeted a drawing of mine, claimed that it was their own, and that Phil had ‘liked’ this stolen artwork on twitter:

This person not only had the gall to upload it and suggest that they’d made it, but they also criticised the way I had drawn his face and then accepted compliments from other people, as seen in this screenshot:

This drawing means a lot to me. Ready Player One has been my favourite novel for four years now, and I was thrilled when Phil first mentioned it in one of his liveshows. It’s not a particularly well-known book, and it made me so happy to hear that Phil also enjoyed it.

I spent nine hours on that drawing. Nine hours hunched over that damn graphics tablet with a cramping hand and shoulders. I constantly redrew the pose even though I suck at anatomy because I wanted it to be perfect. I worked right into the early hours of the morning because I didn’t want to stop. I was so excited. I knew that Phil would enjoy this drawing.

The only other time I’ve been noticed by Dan or Phil was in 2015, when I tweeted another artwork at Phil. He ‘liked’ it and I almost had a heart attack.  It was an incredible feeling and I wanted to feel that again.
Everybody here knows how difficult it is to be noticed by Dan and Phil. Most people never get it. I was certain that this artwork would be recognised, and I was correct. It just wasn’t in the way that I wanted it to be.

The art thief deleted the tweet after being called out (they haven’t apologised or answered any of my messages yet), and I’ve posted my drawing again in an attempt to have it rightfully credited to me. Despite my best efforts, I doubt that Phil will see it again, or, if he does, I don’t know whether he’ll act. The pride and accomplishment that I felt after completing this drawing has been marred by this shitty, talentless person with low self-esteem and weak ethics. And what happened to me isn’t an isolated incident.

Take, for example, @phantheraglama and @maddox-rider’s constant struggle with people who repost their art. Or when @arctoids and @incaseyouart discovered that their work was traced and used in Dan’s The Urge video. I was there when @pinofs found themselves in a situation similar to mine, when Dan liked a tweet from someone who traced their drawing. 

It’s not limited to ‘art’ artists either. Some of my friends, @phansdick, @insanityplaysfics and @crescendohowell have their incredible phanfiction reposted constantly. @moaninghowell, @themostfuniveverhad and @moonlitdan’s edits have been stolen and posted, too. And this isn’t everyone. These are only the people I’m aware of, and the ones who are lucky enough to have had their plight seen by others. There are many, many other artists who don’t have enough followers to be noticed, or who never get the recognition they deserve because the thief has more followers than they do, and anything they say is overshadowed by that.

After scouring through copyright and code of conduct laws for various social media, I’ve learnt that unfortunately there is nothing you can really do except report the problem and hope that staff are able to delete the offending post. Since most phan artists don’t actually legally buy a copyright, we are completely reliant on the decency of others to prevent art theft from occurring. Most of the phandom is great and works to support artists, but unfortunately, the bad eclipses the good. The ‘good’ majority is irrelevant when there are ‘bad’ people out there, doing bad things.

So how do you stop this from happening? You can’t. There are, however, ways to make it harder for people to actually steal your art, a lesson I wish I had taken to heart before this happened.

1. Put your watermark in a noticeable place and make it your username, not your actual name. Write it somewhere that has a distinctive pattern or colours that are hard to replicate so that nobody can brush over it easily.

2. Specify in your caption what you’d like done with your art. Every artist is different – some are okay with people reposting their art with credit, others aren’t. Make sure you tell people what you want, as many people repost things with the good intention of getting it more recognition. 

3. If all else (including nicely messaging them) fails, report the shit out of the person.

And to anyone who has ever stolen art, know this: Your way of getting recognised by Dan and Phil is crap. Any reblog, like, note or compliment that you get is OURS. None of that goodness is directed to you. You have done nothing but shit on the hard work and achievements of other people. You’re the scum of the phandom.

I think that Vic, from @incaseyouart, phrased it really well: It takes many years to develop a fine skill such as drawing, because to learn is to develop your style by referencing other artists and material. Tracing and reposting someone’s image, and other forms of art theft, are cheap ways of reproducing art. It is plagiarism of great effort. Not only does it steal from the original artist’s feelings of accomplishment and pride over their creation, it also discourages proper skill development. Do not repost, create. Do not steal, learn.

I hope that we can start up a discussion about art theft again. I really don’t want anyone else to go through this stressful and disheartening experience.


Update: The person has apologised and seems to regret what they’ve done. Phil also liked my post on Twitter again! Thanks to everyone who helped, and Phil for seeing the issue and fixing it :) Even though this was a win for me, unfortunately art theft is still a huge issue. Let’s not forget that.

******

Assholes.

Everywhere.

You were getting really annoyed by the amount of garbage in your school, glaring at any male species that so as to dare to look your way. You were disgusted by them, and they were all so retarded. No offense, but it was true. It was something about their brains that have not mature or never will, to be fascinated by a bottle cap, or to go squeaky and jumpy everytime they saw a nice girl. Once, a guy threw a piece of chocolate up, it hit the ceiling fan, and everyone other than you were covered with that sticky substance.

anonymous asked:

Hey, when you repost original stories without the authors permission, could you at least have the decency credit them properly?? Adding my reddit username at the bottom without saying it's a reddit username is pretty useless. Also ASK BEFORE REPOSTING, IT'S REALLY NOT THAT HARD.

Ah I need to clarify - are you referring to my more recent postings which have got attached links to the author’s page? If yea then I think the attached links should suffice. If you’re referring to the older postings with only just the Reddit username however, then I do genuinely apologise for that. I’d only started adding the links after hundreds of stories in and so it’s not feasible for me to backtrack and add the links to the older stories. Feel free to message me though with the title of your story and I’ll add in the required links!

And as for the asking before reposting, I do try to make an effort to do so along the way but most of the time I simply cannot afford the time to do so. The time I dedicate to this blog is pretty much taken up by sourcing stories and doing minor formatting and language edits whereever necessary. Having to take the extra time to message and then wait for and keep track of replies simply isn’t possible for me thus far. Obviously I know that this isn’t ideal and nor am I using this as a excuse for this being right (it’s not, I know) but I’ve got to work around with the time I can spend on here. 

(I cant believe I hit my daily conversation limit and sent out messages to 50 people in an hour…)

About the EXO is OT9 fanproject, please reblog it with the correct timing. (The new correct  banner is red instead of blue).. The time is 11 pm kst 17th July to 12 am kst 18th July BEFORE the Group MV teaser comes out.

We are NOT asking anyone to not hype up or retweet about the GROUP MV teaser at the same time.

Once again, please keep the hashtags positive. We don’t want fanwars just before the comeback teaser is dropped. Despite the strong words on my original post, this comeback is mainly about giving some time to remember yixing and remember we are 9 members as EXO enters a new era. Thank you for the overwhelming response and cooperation even though we made several changes in it in the past 24 hours. I deeply apologise on behalf of everyone.

Also, to the people who chose to not participate, with a valid reason in mind, its okay. Please do not be worried about the intentions of the project. The project itself is in no way against the comeback or Yixing’s solo activities.

Thank you for your feedbacks, comments and messages. Please inform all your Twitter and Instagram buddies to repost this RED banner.

Let’s atleast have fun. A little bit of #kokoxing is in no way gonna harm anyone.

Just want to apologise for the “reposting” thing, I actually didnt know what was going on because i downloaded “moon phases” photo from we heart it and posted it here, turned out it was @orriculum photo and everyone assumed that i reposted a photo that was on her blog, so sorry about that… i usually just reblog photos, but when i put something here its from we heart it, i did not want to do anything bad.

anonymous asked:

Please properly credit the people who spent so long writing these headcannons. In a lot of your screenshots the name of the original poster isn't there. In fact, why don't you just reblog the posts? When these writers and fans see their posts being reposted without proper credit it's frustrating.

I honestly sincerely apologise. I don’t find these posts on tumblr in all honesty i save them off a fan site on facebook who have already screenshotted them the way they are. I honestly don’t mean to discredit any of the original owners of these theory’s. I reblog anything I see on tumblr definitely would not take the credit.
I apologise for what it seems that I am discrediting the owners of this post but I really am not trying to.
