Thank you very much for incredible 270 answers under my last journal - I felt like Humon, having so many comments on such cultural issue!
thank you! It was very interesting to read them - sorry, I can not answer all of them, but I read them!
At second, I am unhappy. Everything just seems to go wrong, I feel so useless and absolutely not able to do anything.
And honestly, dA also did not please me.
After some nice long pause, two of my photos were stolen by two different persons, who refused to remove those shots when I told them to do it.
So I reported them through Help desk.
You surely know that my photos are signed. As an evidence, I sent the originals to dA, so staff could clearly see my signature. That signature is visible also on stolen photo, which is just poorly edited.
But dA refused to remove it!
They said they need me to strictly say some "phrase" like ,,I swear that I am really an original author and owner of copyright"
Honestly I felt like an idiot and I gazed at it in disbelief. That evidence I sent was as clear as possible.
To me, this system is very thieves-friendly, while for original authors, there are only complications. I can not believe I need to swear that I am really original author and I need to BEG the admins to remove that stolen work.
And I better do not announce those thieves - I bet it would be ME who would have problems, if I informed about them
