I know, I've said it before, but after this charming little article on why art theft isn't really theft, I'm just done.

Art theft IS theft

ART THEFT IS THEFT YOU ASSHOLES

So I say to you, user who is either reading this last journal as a follower or one who has simply stumbled across it: let us act.  Don't buy any more subscriptions, don't gift them any more either.  Don't pass out llamas and order from the print shop.  Don't use the chat features or share the links.  Don't give this place any more traffic and money.  If they do not consider our hard works worth protecting, then we should not be bothered to feed the beast.  Let it starve, let the servers crash!  Do not let deviantart continue spreading this idea that the digital age requires no permission or protection!

ART THEFT IS THEFT YOU BASTARDS

The digital age is no different than any other age: your copyright is still yours to protect, someone may not profit from it without your permission and a whole other copyright law invoked, and there is no difference in the damage done by lifting someone's hard work for your own profit and stealing their TV out of their house.

ART THEFT IS THEFT YOU FOOLS

No more subscriptions.  No more llamas.  No more posting and sharing and downloading.  Send the message that this latest terrible policy is not acceptable and it will not be tolerated like the other lousy policies that have been put into play.
