For those of you out there that publish your photos or art at Photobucket and other sites like Deviantart, some of you have experience with art theft. Here is another case of a site that unfortunately creates an atmosphere for art theft: http://www.polyvore.com
This link goes to the Photobucket section of Polyvore. Polyvore is apparently a site that allows members to create their own collages from images and upload them. Although their site obvious states “use your own images” several members insist on borrowing / stealing art of others and ruining it in ugly tacky collages.
If you have photos or art at Photobucket and Deviantart , check out that site to be sure your photos and artwork haven’t been stolen. They also seem to steal directly from people’s websites too. It’s pathetic how people think JUST because images are online, they must be free. At least ask permission to use something. If it’s not your art… DON’T USE IT!!!
