DeviantArt can now inform anyone whose art has been used in NFTs without permission

There are numerous instances in the Web3 world where projects contain stolen art that has been turned into NFTs without the consent of the creators.

DeviantArtan online art and design community founded in 2000, is now opening its NFT security tool to everyone.

Until now, that tool was only available to members of the DeviantArt community. But now any artist can sign up for it.

Here’s what you get: The free version lets you upload 10 images and get alerts if someone uses your art as NFT. You can pay $9.95 per month to get protection for 1,000 artworks with a maximum size of 50 GB.

The company told me that its tool can also detect similar art where someone has moved some elements or changed their style. This prevents projects from creating derivative works of your art.

Here’s how to protect your creations:

  • go to the DeviantArt Protect website.
  • click on Join the beta
  • Sign up for the security service with your email address.
  • Once you’ve done that, you can upload 10 PNG or JPG images of art you’ve created.
You can upload 10 artworks for free on the platform.
