AHiL's Anti-Theft Card PSD Pack by JesseLax AHiL's Anti-Theft Card PSD Pack by JesseLax
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SUPPORT THIS RESOURCE. DOWNLOAD. COMMENT. FAVE.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a royalty free resource, published under a (CC BY 3.0). Not for re-sale.
Commercial use is permitted.
You're welcome to display your finished card anywhere you like.

Pack Contains:

:bulletred: Intense dislike for Art-thievery and plagiarists.
:bulletred: One PSD, including the new 2012 update pack, containing: 42 new icons, 6 fully customizable style cards, 6 premade cards with editable email/logo space, and additional addons for 5 of the 6 style cards.
:bulletred: One PSD, including the original 2008 AntiTheft card, conatinaing: Disclaimer, Text, Layer styles, Grouped Folders, Alternate Large-sized "No" shield.
:bulletred: JPG of finished sample (seen above).

NOTE: You may not have the same fonts used in this work. My suggestion to you is to replace it
with whichever font best suits your eye, or to Rasterize the Text Layer to preserve it in its original state.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

An Anti-theft Warning card, you ask?
I say: Sure, why not? Every little reminder we can give rippers is just one less the likelihood that they'll take our work alter it, and/or call it theirs.
The intention is to give cause for pause, and excite potential thieves and plagiarists into adhering strictly to our rights as artists.

Suggested uses:
:bulletgreen: Modify the cards to suit your aesthetic needs
:bulletgreen: Include one in your packed RAR or ZIP files.
:bulletgreen: Have it sent as an extra email attachment when delivering your work.
:bulletgreen: Host it and link to it so people don't have to dig through your journals.
:bulletgreen: Use them as your Extra Module image here on deviantART.
:bulletgreen: Include it on your webpages, portfolios, or public storage accounts.
:bulletgreen: Paste it into your screenshots.
:bulletgreen: Pretty much use them any way you can think of!


Special thanks to ~lorddarq for the use of his Brush Illustration Resource in the orginal 2008 card.
Without his collaborative effort this PSD could never have reached the heights it has by now.


Originally created in Photoshop CS3ext, with paintbrush by the amazingly talented ~lorddarq;
Updated version (April 17, 2012) completed in Photoshop CS5ext.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------


IMPORTANT NOTE: The links displayed in the original card are included only as a Template Example of how links can fit into the design.
It's absolutely unnecessary to inform me about Wikipedia's reliability as a source of information.
This is a PSD. If you don't like the links, you're welcome to change them as you see fit.
Thanks!

Daily Deviation

Given 2011-05-14
Anti-Theft Card PSD Resource by `allhopeislost Last day of Resources/Stock Week: I think every artist, especially Wallpaper artists, since our artwork seems to make the rounds of all of the Wallpaper sites from here to Russia to China, are proud and protective of our artwork. We want to share our wallpapers but more often than we care they are ripped and uploaded devoid of our names and the name of the artwork itself. Copyrights seem to lose its meaning once we upload our artwork. So I give you this PSD made by our own Jesse (allhopeislost) to help protect our artwork and to remind everyone that Art Theft hurt us all and to be aware of copyrights. ( Featured by Casperium )

*uses them with PS in school*

Just a curious question. Are these only for the cards or can they be used to make sig banners/banners(with proper credit given of course) to put awareness on art theft and things as such?

I mean, I can just use them for the cards if wished for that purpose only and use other things. I just like to ask first though.

It's funny how this thing is under a CCA 3.0 licence. I mean, it's necessary, but it's still funny.
Reply
:iconjesselax:
JesseLax Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2012  Professional Interface Designer
Yeah!! You're totally right.

I shook my head at myself when I selected the license... but I've just had so many people take these things and credit themselves as the artist/designer that I'll take the slight hypocrisy over the frustration. Conversely though, the CC license could also be viewed as sort of bolstering the point... that we should all be aware of the licenses and rights. Even those that are for your rights, and that are free. :)

Yes... I'm very sorry about that. Even when something is written in stone owned by someone, people still tend to steal.

Art theft is a huge example of it, especially (and maybe almost exclusively) here, on dA. I don't like talking about it because then, right away, I sound like the kind of people who are social justice fighters, slapping links to dA FAQs on their signature, rudely going around and actually spending their days looking for stolen art and bitching to (instead of simply reporting) the offender, etc, etc, etc. These social justice types have good intentions with not so good ways of expressing them.

But yeah, as for your badge and module pack, I love this. The orbs are a bit flashy and shiny for my taste, especially in this current age of having everything either really chrome-like and shiny, or minimalistic and flat, but the Creative Commons modules are pretty sweet, sophisticated, not flat looking, and easy to read off of.

Really nice for blog and web-dev usage. Not so much deviantART wise since dA takes care of licensing for you with watermarks and... Well, licences.

Couldn't agree more. I find it absolutely fascinating how black and white this topic is. Seems like there's little gray area for most people. Even for myself, clearly I'm an advocate for Artist/Author Rights. But then my situation is based on a continual series of events which affected my opinion and feelings on the matter. It's rather political when it come right down to it.

Appreciate the compliments on the pack! I had intended to grow this pack with separate add-ons (though my time these days is little), but simultaneously I also love giving things to beginners... so their creativity can take its own shape and really set itself off. In respect of those notions, this pack isn't really a "complete" package. From the start I fully expected people to do what they will to make it feel like theirs. All of the extras are more there to show flexibility, and then on the spare chance artist out of the visual medium might want to simply appropriate what's there. I'd actually love it if other artists contributed to the pack with their own variations, styles, and icons in their own gallery!

As for displaying it on deviantArt, I mostly agree with you. Though I would certainly advise anyone who's a subscriber to use a custom module for their card, and keep it prominent on their main page. It spreads awareness, most importantly, but penultimately also helps people to know the opinion of where one stands on usage. That in and of itself is a huge step in keeping the collateral damage low.

This is really awesome, I want to thank you very much for caring enough to make this available to us in the creative community. These days anything that may help is good. I have been ripped off so many times I have lost track. Can I use these for my own work? I also enjoy the stuff you do a great deal. I find your designs to be very in-depth and colorful, they are also well thought out and really come together nicely. Certainly way above what I am capable of doing right now. Thanks again!

Lots of us get stolen from and regularly by people who don't know better or who don't care about the time and effort we put in. It's really sad. Hope it stops for you. :)

Thanks for your work and sharing with us.
I understand that these will never stop anyone from copying our works but it may help some.

About a year ago I sent a design to be printed at walgreens cause they were giving away a free poster print. Boy that was a mistake and even though I had a watermark, the tech cropped my work to remove the watermark and put it on the net. In fact I have found a high school using my design.

After this, I have become a lot more careful about where I post any work and/or where I get it printed.

Thanks again

That's a horrific story... I'm so sorry to hear that. I think places like this should really be liable to some form of contract when it's artwork that's involved. It's one thing when people bring in their vacation photos, but serious photographers and artists alike shouldn't have to worry about that kind of thing.

I hope situations like that never happen to you again. It's entirely undeserved.

In the meantime, do enjoy the PSD---and I hope that it does remind people how aware you are. :)

You're very welcome!

And also, I think your fear is a valid one. I have it every day, and I've got a ton of work online. Just please do consider carefully that the only absolute measure to making sure your work is never stolen is to never share it online. There's just no guarantees on the web.

I do hope, however, that the use of this pack helps the issue just a little so authors such as yourself can be a brazen about how your work is meant to be used (if at all). And, I think it's also a good question of conscience to those who do steal, because it will mean they're perfectly aware what they're doing is wrong. :) have fun and good luck!
