RE: PSA: How to spot a(n) "Art Thief/Plagiarist"

in #steemit4 years ago

Thank you for the mention and link! I really appreciate it.

One time I had someone upload a poster I made on Deviantart, and they got more favorites than me! People seem to believe that anything online is free to use.

I've heard of this "search google for image" feature before, it's also to find out if someone is pretending to be somebody else online. I'll try to use it myself to find original artist because their works are often shared without credit in websites such as Pinterest.

@honeyrabbit No problem. I'm more than happy to give credit where credit is due.

It's tough to put your work out there, with the risk of someone stealing your stuff. Sadly it's the world we live in. What's considered fair use and not. Plagiarists. I felt the same way about my writings (not that it's anything special). It's bad enough that some services gain ownership of your content if you were to use them (FB, wordpress, etc). Toss in the the idea of someone else taking credit for your time and efforts is painful.
