Someone stole my pics!

I just heard about a massive art theft at a "blog" called "Korean Drama"!

http://www.dramakoreaterbaru.com

Don't believe me? http://www.dramakoreaterbaru.com/shane/shane-the-frees...

It seems the pics are being drawn mostly from deviantART and WikiFur by a bot, so if you have an account/article on either, your pics will most likely appear this whether you're popular or talented or not at all. This is a massive-level art theft!

Wow....im all over that site.

But are we sure it's art theft? Beyond not having permission to post it are they taking credit for it or charging for access? These images are free to view were they are posted and there for if they are circulated it's not theft as long as credit is not stolen for the art. Or it's not put on a pay site or otherwise profited off of.

Im a little...iffy on having work involving my personal character on this site but in a way it's a complement. I think we need to research the site more and find out what there doing.


..I fail to see how furry art has anything to do with Korean drama though.

That's why I'm certain it's a bot.

It's likely this site was legitimately created for Korean drama shows, but someone hacked into it and placed a bot in the page to go around and pull random pics from random sites for whatever reason.

Theft or not, it's still not right since it's clear this is not supposed to be some kind of third-party dA search engine.

It's not art theft, it's a dumb bot going wild. Complain either way if you feel you need to.

At least I think whoever really owns this site (at least I'm pretty sure this site really was meant for Korean drama) can reclaim ownership of it and clear out all the pics this bot has posted without permission.

Too bad it's not a site like e621 or Wild Critters. I'd have no problems with my pics being there as long as the artists who drew them felt the same.

there does not seem to be a way to contact these people on the site.

I've noticed. So I have no idea how I can send them a CaD.

There is. But the guy who registered the domain is from Malaysia.

you know these images might not even be hosted on the website...if you search for anything and I mean anything it brings up random pics associated with the word. It's some kind of search bot.
