Violations of Usage

  • For information regarding copyrights, visit http://art-support.com/copyright.htm
  • It is illegal to scan a print, or to use that scan for placing on non-digital objects or products.
  • It is illegal to post other people’s art on sites that sell prints such as photobucket or deviant art.
  • It is illegal to create galleries posing as the creator of the artwork or posing as the actual artist.
  • It is illegal to attempt to artistically or digitally reproduce the imagery of another artist’s work for the purpose of selling prints. Any image based off another artist’s artwork is considered a derivative work of art. Works may be created for educational purposes, their originals may be sold, but to sell prints of that derivative work of art is a violation of the original artist’s rights. It is also illegal to claim first rights to that image. Although image content is protected, the concept of a work of art is not, so long as the new image does not resemble the inspiring artist’s work.

    Hi there, I’ve found one of your artworks up on a colouring group on facebook, they like to share artists work illegally, and as yours had a signature, I could track you down to let you know! if you send me a reply, I can send you the screenshot so you can report to facebook- they ban anyone talking ‘copyright’ as soon as they mention it, so I have to do this in stealth mode!
