Im assuming you mean memes (though you could just mean all pictures with captions). In that case, take 3 minutes of your time to watch this video that shows both sides of the argument more closely. www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9Zysw…

I don't mind demotivational posters because some people are able to create something that many other people can relate to.

 

HOWEVER they don't belong on dA or any other art sides!

Love the humor here and some butthurt about what's art and what isn't. Pfft! XD Your comment pretty much explains how effortless it is to make them. And nowhere does it mention against Demotivationals with images the person himself/herself drew since you said Copyrighted image XD

Art can be anything. 3D images, paintings, drawings, sketches, comics. But demotiovationals... Not art. It's a picture with text.

Art can be funny, but just because something is funny doesn't mean that it's art.
Demotivational posters are when people steal the artwork of others. That is not art, it is stealing.

people DO give credit so it's NOT stealing

FAQ #306: Does "Crediting" let me use whatever I want? If you actually educated yourself, you would know that giving credit ≠ getting permission.

It depends really. Not all demotivational posters use copyrighted images. The ones that do however should be removed.

That still doesn't mean it's not art and besides if you took all the stolen art from a gallery you'd be left with an empty room.

...art in a gallery isn't stolen.
Demotivational posters are not art because you take some art someone else made, slap a black border around it, and throw on some words. You don't do anything artistic.

Oh, yeah, it's art, to be certain.

Just not anything special.

A picture would be art. So, a picture surrounded by a black box with white text at the bottom would still be art. It just looks a heck of a lot worse. It's like a child's coloring book. The pictures usually look better BEFORE the child gets to them.

Haters-Gonna-Hate I have to say that you are being somewhat hypocritical, you are saying that Demotivational Posters do not deserve to be on this site. However humor is in fact an art form, just like dancing, singing, acting, drawing, writing, and photography. True its not an original piece but they never said that it was. They were not claiming the image as their own. And if you did not notice the site admins/owner don't seem too upset by it or worried by the Demotivational Posters. If it really bothered them don't you think they would ban any account that did that? Besides there are plenty of people (not bashing anyone here) who basically recopy art, especially scenes in anime where they take a still shot and line for line and color for color recreate the art piece...if Demotivational Posters are so wrong wouldn't people who copied anime art also be in trouble for unoriginal art, after all they are not creating their own piece, they are re-drawing what someone else already drew. Same with music, what do you think a cover is? (its the same song sung by anther person, its not against the law or should be bashed as long as they don't take credit for the song itself, just their own unique twist to it) Another thing, if they bother you so much then just avoid them, the way this site is set up it is fairly easy to bypass them and look at the other art...its kinda like the people on you tube who purposely look up music they hate just to bash the artist. If it bothers you so much then avoid them and spare those who enjoy them your rant on how they are not art and people who create them are lazy and/or have no real talent. Its not fair and its not nice!

The site copyrights the deviation to the person who submits it. By using copyrighted photos in their demotivationals and uploading them, they are stealing. They have banned people for demotivationals. I've seen it happen.

Perhaps, still site admins don't seem to worried about it, its not any of our concerns who is banned and who isn't. But you are being hypocritical, you are hating on something when your name by its very nature is kinda bashing haters.

Well your actions say other wise, and if they are such a danger to the site then why are there so many demotivational posters, wouldn't they be more careful to ban users and delete the offending "art" so to speak.

They are deleting them but there are millions of other stolen works on here, not to mention other deviations that are not allowed like porn, self harm, hate art, etc. This site's full of that stuff.

"Literature (from Latin litterae (plural); letter) is the art of written work and can, in some circumstances, refer exclusively to published sources."
-Wikipedia
Not to mention that literature doesn't use images that are (more often than not) stolen.
