Seriously. I know he probably won’t get caught for some time. I mean, its been 10 years and he’s still stealing artwork from people around the world. AND from big companies like Capcom, DC, Marvel and Dreamworks. But I really hope the law do thing about this.
If he doesn’t get caught and the law won’t do anything about this crime. Welp, I’m taking down all of my artwork. Just gonna make a website and put it on there maybe. -sighs-
Here’s a list of 4252 images that the douchebag stole for his art4love website.
The art4love website is down but he made two more websites and is continuing stealing artwork…
I know this is a lot of images and pages to go through but please check and see if your work have been stolen. (I’ve seen a piece on here so far that was made up of a bunch of photoshop brushes, very basic stuff. If he can steal this piece and sell it, then he might have steal from any ol’ body.)
I’m going to continue posting stuff like this because I care about my fellow artists. I want to get as many people as possible to spread this around, so please help!
Copied from my friend’s DA journal. PLEASE READ!
Art4love.com is a site (it’s now down) FULL of stolen art. The worst part is the guy who ran it was quite well known apparently. His name was Chad Love Lieberman, the nephew of Joseph Lieberman. He’s stealing from many artists here on dA, the list is quite long, but I’ll post a link for it at the bottom of this journal.
He was never caught (by any professional people or the media), just people here on dA.
He seems to be getting away with this, that is just sickening.
My work wasn’t stolen, but it infuriates me to see this guy is getting away with something so large-scale and illegal. Especially with other people’s hard work. Hard work they never gave permission for him to use or sell, so that means he’s keeping ALL of the profits.
Apparently this has been going on since 2006, but it’s just gotten A LOT of attention recently. Please, if you see other people’s artwork stolen from this guy, please notify them.
There is a person organizing a lawsuit for this case, and I will provide that link as well.
Thank you for reading this, and I hope we can all somehow resolve this case!

People are trying to get Colbert to say something about this crime.
He’s stealing images from DeviantArt, Tumblr, FurAffinity and who knows what else.
Also, he’s not just stealing from popular artists guys. He’s stealing from unknown artists as well. People who only have one favorite or comment, he’s stealing from them too. So please spread this around! He must be stopped!
