In wake of the end of the Miraculous Black Out event on Tumblr, I've done a lot of thinking about art theft and how I'm going to prevent my comic from being stolen in the future. I've got some ideas, and the one I'm really focusing on is going to completely change to way I upload the comic. I shouldn't have to explain why art theft is such a big deal. A ton of ML fanartists have quit drawing for the fandom because of art theft. Specifically, people monetizing off of their work. The thought that some people might actually being making money off of my comic made me briefly consider discontinuing it. Granted, I may have unknowingly given permission to let these people reupload my comic. Regardless, making money off of someone else's work is wrong and scum, regardless if you are dubbing or translating it.
That said, this redesign around how I'm going to upload the comic from here out is going to take a long time to get done. This is all to prevent future art theft, so you can thank them for further delaying updates. Some of you may not understand why art theft is such a big deal, but that's probably because you've never had your hard work snatched from under your nose. :/ Drawing fanart is supposed to be for fun. It shouldn't have to come to point where we have to put it under lock and key.
Permission to upload my art will always be denied.
Questions about when the next update is will always be ignored.
If I find out people are actually making money off my comic, I will discontinue it.
Salty fancomic artist out.
