First I want to thank all those who like my works and support me, I really appreciate it. My textures are free and everyone can see that, all I asked is to credit properly, so this is the least thing to do. No money or points, just my name.
What I want to say is that I found out many sites/people steal my works, erase my name, and claim them as theirs O.O Have I prohibited sharing outside deviantART? No, it's allowed, but, 1- Ask me first. 2- Credit me. 3- The download must be from dA (it's free and public) 4- Send me a link of your share. Is it hard to follow these simple rules?
Ok, I won't be ashamed of listing the sites who stole my works right here, cause I try to send them emails/comments/messages but somehow they disable these stuff (they're protecting themselves well) o.O So, Whoever own these sites or joined them and stole my and other deviants works must delete them.[link][link]
->How funny this sit is stealing most of works
I have moved my textures to Storage, because I want to add a watermark. If this art theft continues I think I'm going to take further precautions like making my works dA-only, disable sharing, adding more rules, or even add a password to the download files that can only be requested by notes o.o I really don't want to do that, I love dA and I love making textures, but those pirates are ruining our lives. So, is there anything better to do? How to properly report them?
