That's attribution theft, though. If they attribute the original work, and don't claim it as their own it's fine.Except that's how the artist gets wind of their trace and has it censored!>>233427
> Yeaaaaaa i think you are going to need this
Copyright makes corrupt fucks billions of dollars while hurting the creators who've been deluded into thinking they're protected by it. That's not an exaggeration, or a fantasy.
> That doesn't make artists wanting their work to be respected something bad.
Wanting your work to be respected is fine. Forcing people to respect your work whether or not they think it's worth respecting, for your own personal definition of "respect" is not.>>233433
I know, and it's been the biggest art site on the entire Internet for the last 20 years! That they're being total faggots is just unforgivable given the amount of influence they have on our collective mindshare.>>233456
As long as they're charging money for something they're actually doing or providing, I'm fine with that stuff. Terms like "You may not compete with me" I don't take kindly to though.>>233446
Yeah, tracing is important. Not worth sharing IMO, since it's just a muscle memory exercise and literally every trace is worse than the original. But some people like to imagine their favorite characters in whatever situation it is, and yes they didn't put effort into it if all they do is trace, but I don't see it doing any harm to anyone else. Tracing is certainly a lot more effort than just drawing moustaches on something.>>233467
Those conditions actually are in the contracts for selling phones... it's pretty hideous.
