EDIT: Thanks to a member this has been brought to our attention:

We are getting word that myfreecopyright has wiped clean all records from before they were purchased by a buyer in Hong Kong. NO ONE should register ANYTHING with MYFREECOPYRIGHT.com Whittaker sold the site and now NO ONE from before the sale, can log in.
It might not have started as a scam, BUT it is a SCAM NOW.

We investigated the MyFreeCopyright situation. This is what we found – forums.vindy.com/read.php?1,54…

Evening everybody! As you're probably well aware, art theft is a huge problem on the internet, let alone deviantART. But I have very recently learned about two websites that help you copyright and protect your property. And the best part? They're free! If you want to learn more about registering your works, be sure to check them out. www.safecreative.org/ myows.com/

I also have a contest to promote. The contest was created because an artist recently heard some very incorrect ideas on what the female body should look and be like as a character in the comic book industry. The contest aims to have participants create a female super hero with a realistic and healthy body type.

If you have the creative chops to do it, check out the original journal that has all the information [and is written much nicer] here: kxhara.deviantart.com/journal/…

Thanks for your time. :aww:

In most countries, copyrights are granted upon original product creation.

My bet is that this still Whittaker. It's been done before, but with a different form of service.

Great idea on the links, but how credible are these sites?

The first two are used by an artist on DA who recently had to deal with an art thief. Thanks to the artist using the sites they have a winning legal case against the art thief. I unfortunately no longer have a link to the artist's journal that describes this issue, but I watch them and maybe they'll make a new journal I can link you to in the future about the subject.
