SORT OUT WEHEARTIT!

WeHeartIt is a pretty site, that lets us share photographs, illustrations, and graphics. However; nine times out of ten these images are not credited to their rightful owner. This is something that bugs me personally, although I know alot of people who feel the same way. Something needs to be done. Something like the 'share on tumblr' button, that automatically lets you post an image to weheartit, with all credit included. Anything! I will not rest until something is sorted. This is against the laws of copyright, and I will not have my career ruined by my photos being pasted round the internet. It may seem ridiculous, but people really make money out of these pictures. Without credit, they are not making a living.
I want to shut this site down, or change it for the best.

  • morgan It is very unfair that people can use the photos on WeHeartIt and not be forced to give the correct credit to the artists who the art/photos belong to. The rightful owners see it somewhere and just feel completely deflated and honestly quite angry. It's great the art gets recognized and shown off on this site but unless you make adding/keeping the credit mandatory,then this site is honestly a joke and should be shut down immediately. It's illegal to steal art.

  • Elisa I hate it when someone posts a picture on Tumblr and I see the "source" is weheartit, because it doesn't give any credit to the right photographer, editor or artists who put a lot of effort in creating that picture or work. This has to stop.

  • Eleana I had my photo stolen and this really pissed me off
