You know, I will say. lI honestly don't care if he's posting quotes that aren't is, especially with the fact that he puts credit, but doesn't say WHO it is...only seeming to imply that he doesn't know.

What irks me is that people seem to be constantly complaining about the subject. I don't care about the quote not being "art". I simply find the complaining very annoying.
I'm sure that the reason so many other people have posted in defense to the quotes is because COMPLAINTS ARE ANNOYING.
Tired when I typed this, but Nuff Sed.

All this fuzz over one image..... i still cant belive it.

art is art, crapy font or not.... you create it and its art. some will like it & some won't, big F****N' deal.....

I'll just say this: Your profile IS YOUR PROFILE, post whatever you wish within site regulations, credit whatever/whoever you want.......

I will paraphrase another quote you stole:

" Life is like a box of chocolates. It doesn't last long for fat people "

According to "your" other quote, you must also be black...

Fatso.-

You must have missed the, shall I say, fine print. Lemme show it to you.

"About the quotes:
1.) I don't own any of the quotes in my collection (unless it's stated otherwise);
2.) Credit is given if the ORIGINAL author of the quote is known;
3.) Even if they are racist, sexist, etc. there is no offense intended; They are made strictly with entertaining purposes;
4.) I don't own any (copyrights), so you can use them however you want them;
5.) Possibly there are some grammar mistakes and it would be much appreciated, if you notice them, to let me know, so I can fix them asap;"

Hopefully you can see it now.

PS: [link] If you don't believe you're wrong because of what I said, then take a look at the official copyright policy. Go make your own quotes, thief.

My turn.

About 1): You don't own the quotes, therefore you don't have permission to just do with them whatever you please.
About 2): Just giving credit, which often you don't, doesn't give you any rights either.
About 3): "No offense, but" is offensive enough. You can't just be racist under the disguise of "no offense", regardless of whether you own the quote or not.
About 4): You don't own any copyrights, so we can do whatever we please with the quotes? Are you completely out of your mind? Hang on, let me repost a front page deviation and claim I don't own any copyrights, see how that goes!
About 5): I wouldn't worry about the grammar, you've got more to worry about. I hope you become more conscious about your actions. While I'm much for freedom of information, you can't just take someone's work without their permission.

For this, I have reported your submission, and I strongly encourage others to do so as well.

"You must have missed the fine print." - That's not going to make you any less of a thief.
I want to look at art on the front page. Not at theft.

Also, I'm not the owner of this image, just trying to prevent conflict. Seems that I've lost, and unlike most, I pretty much know when to stop.

Alpner is who I'm targetting, and regardless, conflict could not be prevented since Alpner started it by taking others work. This has nothing to do with when to stop or when not to stop.

And since when is copyright applicable on quotes? For that matter, how on earth can be a quote an IP in any way whatsoever?

A quote is no different from a book or songtext. I agree, there is lots of controverse over what is and what isn't intellectual property, but it's just a simple matter here: OP didn't show any respect towards the original authors (whether the quotes are protected or not) by plain redistribution. He has no need to copy the work of another here, except that he does gain followers from the work of another. With such simple matter that he posted the work of another, he is already breaking quite a few rules, and it's not just the deviantART rules but also the law in many countries.

The very least you could do is take three seconds to Google the original authors of the quote, then credit them on the piece itself.

...Oh wait, you're technically not even supposed to make these in the first place. But phsfhh, who cares about rules if you have a cheap way of getting views, right? :lol:

Lol calm down, don't add fuel to the fire; it's not necessary. He's not doing any harm is he? Besides, look how many people enjoy it . . . it makes them happy. I'm sure the author of the quote wouldn't mind, because that's probably why he intended to share the quote in the first place, to entertain. Now I ask you, what's wrong with that?
Reply
:iconsillydutchman:
SillyDutchman Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
He *is* doing harm, by receiving acknowledgement which should be received by the original artist. "I'm sure the author of the quote wouldn't mind"- no you're not sure, you're just making a bold statement. Have you spoken to the authors?

Just because he makes other people happy with it, doesn't mean it's right. If I upload a movie, it's the same thing, people like the movie and like me for uploading it, while they shouldn't like me but the original artists.

As much as I am for sharing of information, taking someone else's work without permission is just not cool.

He wasn't taking someone else's work without permission . . . it's pretty obvious he didn't write the quote. Anyways, my whole point was to not add unnecessary fuel to the fire, so I'm going to end this conversation here.

Have a nice day.

I'd have much less of a problem with it if they at least had the decency to post the author's name. It's nice that it's inspiring people and all, but the point stands that this is an art site, not Tumblr or Facebook.
