Not sure where to post this but.. Recently there's been quite some uproar by artists who's designs (posted on DA) are then used on t-shrits and other merchandise that's sold. The artists never even receive credit for it (nor payment). After some digging into their terms and conditions that you agree to when signing up to their site, this pops up: So, DA can promote your stuff on their website or edit anything. They can publish it on any site they want, in any media, or even used to promote groups you don't want to be affiliated with. They can edit, change, or otherwise modify your artwork in any way they want, as well as sublicensing it to third parties. You give up your rights to dispute third aprty profits or copyright infringement. And anything you post on DA belongs to them, even your blog posts and your artist' name.
