I used this image because I’ve seen it posted without a source SO many times.  (I’m looking at you Disney fandom)

I’m gonna go ahead and signal boost the living fuck out of this.

http://saucenao.com/ is a good site to use as well. Another thing you can do is add sources to unsourced art you see on your dashboard so anyone who reblogs from you will spread the source around as well.

it’s even a lot easier to search for the image—just right click the image and hit “search Google for this image”

Something even easier than just that for sourcing is the Saucenao Tool.  It’s an extension for both Chrome and Firefox and it allows you to right click any image and search it through either Saucenao (if it’s an Pixiv work), Google Image, IQDB or TinEye with just a simple click!  

The google reverse image search is SO HANDY! Whenever clients want a tattoo of someone else’s artwork and have searched ‘tirelessly’ for the artist with no avail I email them back in 2 seconds with the artist’s name, email, and website. This is also super handy when you find stolen artwork, I often reverse image search everything in the gallery that looks out of place and email the original artists. It makes you feel like an internet superhero.

Hot Topic is known amongst artist groups as one of the worst offenders of art theft in U.S. retailers. I know artists are important to What Pumpkin, and I’d imagine multiple cases of art theft would be a very big deal. The most well-known of the cases were stolen fan art from independent artists, which is the same demographic the Design Contest was aimed to.  I’m an artist myself and I wouldn’t want to support a store that steals from my peers.

The people running Hot Topic have zero respect to artists and to copyright law. They’ve been ripping-off independent artists’ storefronts, and continue do so. The whole company really should have been shut down long ago.

If you support artists, independent, fan artist, or any kind, you should oppose Hot Topic and MSPA’s association with them!

Tell What Pumpkin to kick Hot Topic out of the Design contest RIGHT NOW.

We have so little time left to stop this please tell them that it is completely unacceptable to do any sort of business with petty art thieves.

Even if you don’t know what to say, or if you think it would compromise the contestants; It won’t. Just please voice your thoughts in anyway you can put them. Don’t let Hot Topic get a dime out of Homestuck.

I was completely unaware of this until now.

Please signal boost. I don’t think Hot Topic should get away with this.

Please stop supporting Hot topic.
