I'm sure a lot of you know and love the College Humor
YT channel. However on July 14th, they uploaded a video with some stolen artwork.[The video][Screencap]
there's a drawing of a cat-girl which can originally be found here:Fan Art - 4 - GabiehBy: devRY0USAKA1
Not only did College Humor not get permission to use this drawing but they also edited out the artists signature. Neither the video nor description provide any credit to the original artist. In fact, the original artist even contacted College Humor over this, but they more or less ended up being completely ignored. To try and get some help with the theft, they posted a Journal
and Facebook message
(Scroll down for English text).
Is it really that hard to provide a link to the artists dA and include their name in the video description? Though considering College Humor videos are monetized, doesn't the artist deserve at least some compensation for their work? I've posted this same information on the video itself as a comment, and I've seen others standing up for the victim as well. So I guess we'll have to wait and see how College Humor responds. But yeah, stealing and art theft is wrong, it doesn't matter how famous the channel or popular the person.
