I'm taking a break of DA now...See you all later..

You can read here.....kampf

*Updated link*…

What you think about?
As you may have recently read, there has been a conflict between some DA
artists and a user from Flickr called Herb Serra.

He has taken artworks from DA artists and placed them in his own gallery (some of which you may have seen in my previous journal) without giving any credits the artists or identifying the artist one way or another.  In some of arts Herb even erased the credit or croped the image, getting rid of any existing credit on the artwork.

We all did a mobilization to him and he felt it....So, Herb deleted all the mentioned
artwork from his gallery.

Herb Serra has come forward and apologized via my messenger. He is VERY sorry for what he's done and would like to resolve this situation with us.

Herb says he didn't have the intention of  "frauding" the works from other
artists, as he identies himself as a "artist lover" not as an "art
thief". He had the intention to create a gallery with work references
for the best artists for he can find. He didn't have the intention to sell the
works or show them as his own portfolio. His biggest mistake was not
having placed the due credits in each image or posting a message linking to
the original author.

I made Herb an offer:  If he post a public messge, reporting the
mistake and promise to give each artist their credit for their work  and ask for authorization from the original authors before posting a new image that does not belong to him, we'll stop flaming him.

What do you guys think about that?

If Herb call himself as a "artist lover", I believe this offer is more than fair to him.

We''ll keep an eye on Herb, if he continues submitting others' artworks in his own
gallery and does not  give respect to our intelectual property, we can follow
the legal path to resolve this situation. And believe me ... NOBODY wants to go down this path !!


*Thank you Nathalie for helping me with english...;)enyotic
