There is a problem that has been mentioned by other Christian groups and I wanted to pass it on.
I have just been made aware of a seriously disturbed Tumblr blog that is using religious artwork without permission, some of it from DA. The owner(s) of the blog are using religious art to mock believers (mostly Christian and Jewish). I recognized a few pieces as belonging to our members and I wanted to let you know how the art you did to celebrate our Lord is being used to denigrate Him.
Others as well as myself believe that if we make enough complaints to Tumblr about copyright infringement, hopefully Tumblr might take the blog down.
Here is a journal with more details and links - jazzy-c-oaks.deviantart.com/jo…
. You may want to look over the blog's archives to see if you recognize any of your work. WARNING
: I feel that I should warn members that, along with the stolen art, there are other disturbing and blasphemous images. Youngsters may not want to go to the archive and others may want to make your scan quick. There are a lot of pictures spanning about two years, but the bulk have been uploaded in just the last three or four months. It did not take me a great lot of time to scan, and if I saw any images for which I knew the artist, you will get a separate note from me.
Please check for your work and file a claim with both Tumblr and deviantART. You can make a claim with Tumblr if you see your own work by filling out this form - www.tumblr.com/dmca
Atheists may believe as they will, but they don't have the right to use our art for the opposite reasons it was originally created. Please let others know about this and pray that this blog will be removed.
I also want to wish you all a very Blessed and Happy Thanksgiving. May we always be grateful for what the Lord has done for us.
