|Stolen stuff galore

Teen Titans Graphic Theft

I was browsing Google for stock art, but look what I found instead!
It looks like some little webpage designer took it upon herself to steal artwork and "mess with" it (looks like MS Paint to me). She uses this art in one of her PhotoShops without credit, and just by the style I can tell it was made by hyoungeun on the TitansGo oekaki. I don't know how long this page has been up with the stolen art, but you can find the page here. She removes the artist's name which was once in the corner or the drawing.
But wait! There's more! On her other pages, she displays a lot of other originals of TGN oekaki art and doesn't give a lick of credit to the original artists. The original of hyoungeun's drawing is there, plus others. Maki's Raven light drawing and friends photo; this one by an unknown artist; this and this by someone I don't know, though I recognize the style; this by Shiankra; and this by brittany. Those are all that I could find.
There's also a lot of screenshots stolen from World's Finest and Animarion Insider, plus some icons I don't recognize. They're probably stolen, but I don't know who would have made them.
But Jesus Christ, it's a lot. It's time she's been found out, and it doesn't look like she had permission from the artists to display their work at all. We should try and contact her and/or her site host, plus warn the original artists. What a beautiful way to start the new year >_>
