I'm Richard Kurbis, a Canadian animator and 3D Artist.
I came to AO to help fight image theft and Image Gallery Exploitation.

I would be very happy to be allowed to expose such sites that have "Terms of User Agreements" or "TOS"'s that basicly erase the artists rights (Artists, especially young enthusiastic ones) blindly go into Online Art Galleries, uploading their work without reading or understanding the power they lose by doing so.

I've already been Banned from one site (AnimeOnline.com) because I put their own TOS in my signature exposing the well-worded exploitation.

Artists work very hard at their craft and its a shame to see other artists being taken advantage of.
