Important Notice, RE: Image Packs
Posted 17 April 2012 - 11:17 AM
This will primarily be an issue for Stock Image Packs (rather than those for people and films/TV shows). Unless the artist who posted the image pack took the pictures themselves, assume that any image is a potential copyright violation. There will be obvious "safe" images from Deviantart accounts that have "stock" in the name, images from stock websites, etc. but images from flickr and from other Deviantart accounts may get you into trouble, so it is better to take the time and do the research rather than find yourself warned, demoted, or banned here on TDA.
We will be removing old image packs from the site and will be scrutinizing other stock packs very closely. Please avoid posting stock image packs that contain images you yourself have not taken in the future unless you are 100% certain that all the images it contains are safe for sharing.

There are some older packs that didn't have any credits at all in them, those are the ones to worry about

I only mention this now because I've finally had the chance to upload a pack of my own to the site, and it's a safer upload then sendspace or mediafire.
