What are violations of the deviantART copyright policy?
Violations of the deviantART copyright policy occur when a member infringes upon the copyright of another creative person.
Copyright infringement can be considered to be any situation where a user does certain things with a creative work which someone else produced without first getting the proper permission.
Some examples of copyright infringement (this is only a partial listing) can include:
Placing a photograph or creative work online without proper permission.
Using a creative work commercially.
Adapting a creative work of one medium to another, such as making a book into a movie or a photograph into a painting.
Modifying or editing a creative work without proper permission.
*Such as using Photography/non-stock pictures/celebrities for the previews.What are "Stock Photos" and can I use "Stock Photos" in my submissions?
Stock images are images that are posted somewhere with the express intent that it may be used by other artists in their own artwork. Use of these images in this fashion are subject to the artist's license, which may or may not require the payment of fees.
Please be aware that not all websites are considered legitimate stock imagery resources. Only the legal owner of the imagery has the ability to offer the work as a stock resource- if the 'stock' website includes images taken from print or film, or includes photographs featuring celebrities or supermodels
then you may rest assured that it is not a valid resources site. Likewise "Render" websites are not
valid stock sources as they offer copyrighted materials which have been cut apart and which are offered by people without the legal right to do so.
*Remember whenever you use a Stock photo, GIVE PROPER CREDITHow to give credit
