✧Hewo, it doesn't occur often, but there is Art theft sometimes. Art theft/stealing is not a good thing. Maybe people put lots of work and love into their art and is rude when someone just takes it.
✧Sometimes, others don't know that they are stealing art and you can offend them by telling them rudely. Be sure to tell them calm and collectively so no feelings are hurt :)
✧When someone is stealing art, don't go around telling the world. Don't "blame and shame".
✧its important for you to know that it isn't 'illegal' to steal someone's art on scratch because of the Scratch Terms and Agreement. But it is something you can get banned on scratch from doing.
✧This studio is made for the people who want to help and victims of art theft. For more info on how to join, what to do, and how we will help, read below

"Art theft. Art theft is usually for the purpose of resale or for ransom (sometimes called artnapping). Stolen art is sometimes used by criminals as collateral to secure loans. Only a small percentage of stolen art is recovered—estimates range from 5 to 10%. This means that little is known about the scope and characteristics of art theft." ~ Wiki
"Art Theft. Its usually when some very disrespectful person decided to use someone else's art in a project without getting permission and/or credit" ~ @BrightStarii-

✧When reporting an art theft you must:
1. Tell the user who stole the art that the art was stolen
2. If they dont take it down, report it and add the link of the original project
3. If the stolen art wasn't from you, alert the user who got their art stolen about the problem and let them handle it. Dont get involved any further, you have now done your part :)
✧If the art was stolen from you and you cant find a way to report it or prove the art was your, come here for help :D
✧We are only selecting a few managers but you can ask to curate in the comments

✧After we have this, anonymous accounts will be used along with a report from the scratch team so everything will get straitened out.
