Have any of your images/movies been stolen by porn sites?

Go to Google, reverse image search. Upload an image you made or a .gif. I found some of mine had been used for porn banners; one of them on a Marvel/DC porn site, (I think it's gone now) some of them on some shitty obscure Russian site. Motherless had gotten some too, and I found one of my .gifs weirdly uploaded in to a four minute video, even though it was a three second loop. Why. I'm not bothered and I find it kind of flattering. Is there anything I could do legally against these people for taking my work and using it in adverts? I wouldn't - because I'm not a greedy fuck - but I'm just curious about what the law might be. Just makes my stuff more mainstream and that makes me happy ;p

Yes, many of our members have dealt with this and there's nothing you can really do about it besides contacting the site's administrators or hosting providers and hope they'll remove it.

I from time to time encounter my work on other websites or people tell me someone stole my work. I don't put much effort in it, since there is nothing one can do about it.

Unless you copyrighted it you can't really do anything legally, the best defense I can think of its Copyrighting it or Posting your name onto the gif. IF you did copyright it OR made it clear that you own it AND it cannot be used for anything, you can file a Law Suit against them, although it'll be really ackward for everyone you can still do it.

I was pretty surprised to see my video on xhamster :D I simply decided to put watermark in next works.

None of my images have ever ended up elsewhere, I don't know if I'm lucky or disappointed.

I've been drawing porn for over a decade and seen entire xxx YAOI paysites plastered with my smut. I'm talking about artwork i've made. Drawn artwork and 3D poses differ a lot and if you haven't made your models, props, textures and scenes from the scratch, you don't have / can't have it copyright protected. DMCA laws may help a bit, but you'd need to contact the host and be really convincing about it. Which wouldn't be too good for you if they'd found out you're making your artwork from resources that are / may be violating EULA laws. You can't do much, so my advice for everyone is, take it as a free advertising. Those kind of paysites need a LOT of work before they could accumulate any kind of serious cash. They're going to be fucked in the long run anyway, so have no worries. <3 If you're annoyed about random sites grabbing your stuff and benefiting from it, plaster watermarks all over the images and make sure it's not going to be easy to remove. Use low opacity and fill the entire image with watermarks.
