Some of the best of the best I find around here on DeviantART

Trying out the mobile app, works smoothly on my 5.1.1 android but the navigation leaves a LOT to be desired. Too cluttered. I have my notifications filled to the brink with what "so & so has added to such & such collection". There is a setting I've found to prevent this clutter and turn off collection's showing up in my feed, but no way to save the setting so it keeps turning on. Keep working on it DA.

I'm sure everyone has heard of Luc Tuymans, a wonderfully talented Belgian Traditional Artist.  Recently he has come up in the news though in a highly publicized plagiarism case in a Belgian court, a case which he has lost.  It all stems around his recent painting entitled A Belgian Politician in which he used a photograph belonging to Katrijn van Giel of Belgian MP Jean-Marie. 

The two works are shown below as they appear on a newsletter I subscribe to called PlagiarismToday.  It is very obvious they are the same image, though one is a painting.  Despite Tuymans insistence to the court that his work was a parody and was not intentionally infringing, the Belgian court ruled that the painting was a copyright infringement and ordered him to stop exhibiting and reproducing the painting or failure to do so will result in a $580,000 fine (€500,000).

Here's a link to the article on  PlagiarismToday

This case brings to mind a lot of works I have seen here on DeviantART.  Paintings & drawings of photographs from right here on DeviantART where people have not done the polite thing...  ASK FIRST!  There are a lot of "artists" here on DeviantART who think that copyright is a joke, and carelessly flaunt infringements all the time.  It is not a joke, it is serious business, and can end up costing a LOT of money to an unsuspecting artist in the long run. 

Opinions anyone?

Anyone need commissions on any work?  You can find me here:
