I really like that red glare going on over Paul. It's like something dramatic's going on with his heart over something they all see in the distance, and apparently he's the only one getting a bad vibe from the sight. XD
Woah. If you dont like this,dont look at it, nuff said -,-. Half of DeviantArt edits pictures of the beatles along with other bands or actors--(including me and a whole buncha million others here on D.A, in fact i am part of a number of groups to add ta that fr the beatles, purly filled with photos, just check my gallery). Along with tumblr, facebook and a number of other sites that i am also persoanlly part of. Just type in McLennon Tumblr and youll find out pretty quick...Did we actually take the photos? No. But when you see the Oscars or something and it shows pictures of actors in that slideshow of oscar winners who died in the past-- did they take the actual photos of them? No.Was their a problem?No Or when you and I did a number of projects in skool and had to add pictures, did we actually take them? No. it was never our property. Yet was their a problem? no. I can tell right now Fab4natic edited this, who knows maybe it was originally black n white? Most likely it was cuz I saw a version of this exact picture in black n white. Maybe she brightend it, airbrushed it, updated the clarity, or exposure or the photo. So yknow wat,please stop searching for random ppl jus so you can report them for things you think they did wrong. Again, over hundreds of groups here on deviantArt have photos, some not even edited of the beatles(and other famous people) and yet they submitted these with no trouble. No rules r being broken, or no copyright issues either cuz no one will ever know wat random crazy paparazzi photgrapher took any of these photos back in the 60s during beatlemania, where hundreds of fans, paparazzi, and police officers were constantly following these four lads, so either way. You cant identify whose, what you say 'property' it is.Now, clear;y its Fan4natic's cus she was the one who edited it and made it her own. Now I am asking you nicly, please stop doing this cuz its not fair--especially when nothing wrong is being done.
First: Learn to use paragraphs. It's very difficult to read poorly written text bricks.
So because of that I'm going to address what you're getting at in short points:
- Read the dA FAQs that I linked and the Terms of Service. You'll see that on dA, you are only meant to post things that belong to you or you have explicit permission to use.
- Not knowing who the copyright owner is doesn't mean it's up for grabs. More than likely, something is owned by someone or a company and unless they say you can use it, you can't.
- Just because someone else breaks the rules, that doesn't mean the rules are invalid.
- dA is self-policing. That's the point of the Report system. If someone hasn't had a rule-breaking image taken down, it's just because it hasn't been reported and seen by an Admin yet.
- Tumblr and Facebook is not dA. They have different rules and what is done on one site does not affect another. Same for the real life scenarios you presented.
- Look underneath any deviation on dA. You'll see they have the copyright symbol followed by the year and the deviant name. This is where you're legally declaring the deviation is your legal property, when it is not.
- Editing something does not make it yours in any legal sense. If you took a story someone else wrote, changed a few words, it doesn't make it your story.
