If you happen to see someone posting a wonderful piece of fan-art that
does not include the artists’ name
does not mention they have permission to repost
Please DO NOT like or reblog the post, no matter how much you admire the art. By doing so, you’re rewarding people who:
ignore the original artist
repost without permission
don’t value copyright or the artist’s talent and efforts
basically steal other people’s work.
Similarly, if you happen to read a Digimon-related translation that
you suspect is not original / is an unauthorised repost (e.g. posted by someone you know doesn’t usually translate)
does not give credit to a translator
lists the translator / source as in a disrespectful way, like “(x)”
please, DO NOT like or reblog it. Like fanart, translation is subject to copywright; fan translators desserve to be fully credited by their selfless, hard work and not have their translations reposted elsewhere without express permission.
Other stuff that you should probably think twice before sharing:
HQ scans from the Digimon DVD/BR releases, unless you know the person who posted them (quite often they are scans from WithTheWill)
fan videos that do not credit other people’s art
edits that seem to come from elsewhere
reposted art by Japanese / Korean fans, even if it mentions “permission to repost” (can you be sure that permission was actually granted?)
Rules of thumb we should all keep in mind:
Don’t repost art without credit AND permission.
Don’t repost translations without credit AND permission.
Don’t steal / plagiarise other people’s content.
Don’t support people who do those things.
Sometimes ignoring them may be the best policy, but if you see something you feel is wrong, you can always contact the original creator OR talk to the reposter and kindly and respectfully ask them to change their (re)post. Remember, most people who do repost don’t do it with bad intentions, and being nice is always the best option. However, there are people who continue to repost content and withhold credit, despite multiple warnings and requests to stop - @digi-egg is the worst example of this, and lately someone has been filling the main tag with reposted art.
Let’s all support and respect the artists and translators, rather than the people who repost (i.e. STEAL) other people’s work.
Make the Digimon fandom a safe, respectful place for all the people who create and share their work! :)
