It's only digital art... no photography... :(

i think it is great to display some of the best art and prints DA has to offer.

To all of those who think that they should be promoting unheard prints, I think that is just jealousy speaking. I mean, WHO bought all of those prints to make those prints featured in this journal? Obviously a large portion of the DA community. And guess what, the same people are featured in the journal, the same people who work JUST as hard as you do.

So for the few who are complaining, stop it. It is like you are saying their art is less art because it is popular. You might not mean that, but when all I read is "bitch bitch bitch", that is exactly what it sounds like. This isn't top 40 radio, this is deviant art, and I respect deviantart's decisions.

They're all gorgeous works. Not to be a bitch though, but isn't the one of the Tardis fan art (which you can't sell according to policy) that's been deliberately categorised as not fan art so it can be sold?

Speaking about the All of Time and Space by `alicexz print specifically, the police call box was chosen for the show Doctor Who because it was such a common place object when that show was created. [link]

While this image is directly inspired by that show, it still is of a technically common place object.

Looking at my Blu-ray collection I see Indiana Jones. If this were a picture of a brown fedora and a whip, it would still simply be a fedora and a whip. While it may bring up images specifically of Indiana Jones in your mind, a fedora and a whip together does not infringe on Indiana Jones copyrights.

Copyright/trademark law is incredibly complex. If it invokes a feeling of, or if it references in some fashion, it still could potentially be OK. I have spent some time studying it so I have enough knowledge to answer your concern with enough certainty, but I know others may be able to explain it in a more technical manner. =p

I hope I was able to help you with this question. :)

I see, I see. Good point... And thank you very much for your polite explanation; I appreciate that.

It still feels like twisting the rules to me though given that she said herself it was a Tardis made out of stars and it has been submitted to a Doctor Who fan group. That's really stretching it. I suppose a more direct example would be the one =Diamond4girl reminded me of, which was the BBC Sherlock one that was a best seller last year (and interestingly enough has had ALL references to the show removed from the deviation description since). That's a very interesting and specific loophole.

But still, you've answered my question and given me some insight. Thanks :)

For this Tardis I can turn a blind eye on, as your explanation can be accepted since this one is a bit tricky, but many, many are supposed to be an instant no and yet they've been selling for years. There's absolutely no valid excuse for the Sherlock one, no matter how artistically, differently, in their own unique style someone presents it. I like Alice's work very much and wish her the best with earning with her (fan)art, but her and many others here are example and proof how dA is profiting from fanart prints and these artists are too, while we, the rest of the community are told fanart can't be sold as prints plus that extra explanation of why we might see fanart print and how it will be rejected which is a lie as there are many that were never rejected and are selling, some of them are best sellers. I, personally, simply want fair and equal treatment with the rest of deviants and not that some of them have a special privilege to sell and profit from their fanart because dA lets them and I and others can't - that's not fair is it?, stop being lied to when reality presents me with facts and proofs that things are not the way dA wants us believe and that's it.
