***UPDATE***

Looks like the account was deactivated. I don't know if this was done by DeviantArt or by the account holder themselves, but it looks like we won guys!

Thanks to everyone who helped report the stolen photos and works by this person. Glad we can come together to help stop art theft! :D


*****************

Hey guys,

I've been made aware that photos of mine, as well as of friends of mine and other cosplayers I know, have had their photos stolen and posted on dA under this account: sharpshadow9545.deviantart.com

I have asked this person to remove the photos, even giving her 2 days to remove them. As of yet, she has not yet removed either my photos, nor those of other cosplayers who's permission she does not have to post.

I have reported the theft to dA but as of yet, nothing has been done. I would appreciate if any of you guys could help by reporting the photos as stolen or being used without permission by the owners. Most of the photos are owned by other people, I've seen 2 at this time that are mine, and numerous others that are of my friends. If you recognize mine or even other people's works on this account, please help by reporting the account. 

I wouldn't normally ask for something like this, but it makes me uncomfortable that my photos are being posted on other accounts without my permission or credit. And even if credit was given, I don't appreciate people who are unrelated to the shoot to post my photos. I have never met this person before and whatever she may say, she at least does not have mine or my friends permission to post our photos. 

Again, I would appreciate the help. Please avoid harassment or vulgar language, I just want dA to deal with this in a timely fashion. I'd rather bombard dA admins than harass a person's account. 

Thanks you guys!!

PS. I've been getting asked about the AN schedule release date. Expect a release around the dates of April 24th-26th. I'm moving out of my apartment this week and I'll be getting settled in so it'll be rough to get everything sorted out and I would greatly appreciate your cooperation  and patience with the schedule release.
I will post a 24 hour advance notice before the schedule goes live. 

Peace and love! <3

Justice has been served. I knew calling up North Korea and China would help our side.

Indeed. :) Just goes to show, if you put enough pressure and you're civil, things can change. :)

I'm so glad you posted this journal. I might mention something on *SutekiGo too if they aren't removed in the next little while. It really pisses me off that she stole our Hetalia photos. And even had the balls to indirectly claims she's cosplaying or taking the photos. We don't even know her! dA better take down her account. It's just a huge amalgamation of stolen art :|

Yeah, I know some cosplayer who follow me found out they had stuff stolen from that person too, so anything to spread the word about theft. Especially because I only had 2 photos stolen, there are groups who had much more stolen and it's just plain wrong. I think I'll go for a DMA soon if dA doesn't resolve this soon.
