“Art Lovers” Alien Grand Admiral to add Imperial Academy reject terrorist to his latest art collection?

The two caught canoodling between the paints aboard a Star Destroyer during interrogation…

“Suspicious paint stains on uniform,” confirm two Imperial Loyalty Officers. 

“Those colors aren’t regulation!”

Neither was that position!

Does this incident spell the end for the Grand Admiral and all aliens that serve the Empire?

“All our human officers are held to a high standard. That holoimage appears to be fabricated by the Rebels to taint a good man’s name.”  holocommunique send from Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin’s office.

“I knew Sabine Wren at the Imperial Academy on Mandalore, and I remember when she was expelled. I always wondered who her patron was. Now I know. He is a good man. Maybe all of this a misunderstanding and he is trying to reclaim our lost members?” confirms Baron Valen Rudor, support of the marriage species equality act.

Maybe it is a misguided effort, but we need to understand how Thrawn’s alien culture may view this precarious situation and determine what the best course of action to take toward a wayward, misbehaving Mandalorian girl.

Thrawn on Batuu about Din’kartay

Thrawn needed provisions from a developed, first world planet different from the isolated planet lost in the Unknown Regions for any sentient society. But not one directly affiliated with the Empire or the rumors he’s heard, First Order. He could procure weaponry, ships and component parts.

But what he could do is reconnect on Batuu with any Mandalorians. He found…

Fan art on Tumblr

Some people’s blogs, like ALL OF MINE feed into Facebook, Twitter and Google+

That means exposure of your art to a reach of 50K+ people. 

When you act salty toward me about not putting your full name, date, serial number, credit card, etc. because I may have obtained the image from other sources, then that means to me in business that I will cut your ENTIRE LINE OFF from access to ANY of my blogs. Basically, your art is unshareable and unworthy in my mind.  It’s worthless. Maybe I might pin it. Most likely not.

I don’t deserve POOR TREATMENT from artists who are crazy when I’m returning a marketing reach of 50K+ exposure. You want to make money, but your art on watermark and society 6 or deviant and go from there.  That is the way it is. 

Trust: we love SOME fan art

But we need more conceptualization.

When you ONLY draw what you’ve seen it shows you’ve not read and you’re not well read.

This is why EU fans are angry, because ALL their art was from a book cover and a description of maybe what a character looks like. No games. No nothing. Just a book description and not a good one at that.

Like a tkun… Or a coufee…. Or a vua tumor? Or a qang qahsa?

Heck, what do Umbarans look like naked?

Or ThyChani?

Or Baby Chiss to Old Chiss?

This is what frustrates SWEU fans with new fans. When we’ve read over 200 books we know the Star Wars outline. Fans that rolled around prequels, still don’t have NJOE, FOTJ and LOTJ background.

So please, when you bash blogs about posting your FAN ART, consider JAINA SOLO and your laserbrain sithspawn ideas.

Fan art attributions on social media

Not crediting the work that artists feel it is theirs is NOT copyright infringement.

Copyright infringement is when a piece of work is taken VERBATIM and passed off as one’s own for PROFIT without request or attribution.

FAN ART is art made by fans of a previously media request. A company, in our case Lucasfilm, commissions work by artists that it will pay them to produce works for their use with a contract. The works are then released, most likely a movie, TV show or novel (games too), and then FANS who are artists use Disney Lucasfilm trademarked items to create derivatives of work. 

Since the items are trademarked to Disney Lucasfilm, they are the only ones who can assume any “copyright” or “infringement” and they do, sometimes.

Fans who use these trademarked items cannot assume a trademark or copyright on their derivative works for any major remuneration. Sorry. That’s how it is. 

Some of that is changing on how it works online.

Best thing fan artists can do is: 

WATERMARK the art. 

DO NOT POST it online, ever.

REQUEST attribution with no snarkiness

Or you can allow people to share your art. You can also put code in the electronics that lead to your online store. Unsure how to do that.

But all of these take a business plan.

This cannot be about emotional discharging of morals. This is about business. We are about business and what hate-filled rage attack post rants do is HARM business owners. There is ZERO emotion here. Just professional logic in business.

If you require services of a lawyer to protect your art, please, by all means, get one.

Other than that, aggressive behavior is meted out by a block. That works for us, well. If we encounter hate-filled anon rage posts, we block, refuse to answer and kick out the few out of the 300 million blogs that are on Tumblr.

We will aim to attribute as much as we can and when we do not know, we will put it out there because a Google search, which is a different company than Tumblr is not as accurate as you’d think, but reporting and killing blogs for an erroneous assumption on YOUR PART will make our lawyers SUE you for VIOLATION OF OUR FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION and a just cause to do legal-tendered business.

Here, buy something: bit.ly/SWStuffWAG77

Star Wars Actors Guild 77 will no longer share or reblog certain artists’ fan art unless we commission it.

We have paid for art before. So we will put our money where our mouth is. At the moment our reach is 30,000 people cross platform.

LET US BE MORE BLUNT: YOU HAVE NO PROTECTIONS ON FAN ART UNLESS YOU ARE PAID BY LUCASFILM!

COPPING A SQUAT ON INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS ON PREVIOUSLY COPYRIGHTED MATERIALS WILL GET YOU SUED OR A CEASE AND DESIST LETTER. I’ve seen Lucasfilm do that before.

SINCE LUCASFILM DID NOT ASK YOU CREATE THE ART, YOU CANNOT MAKE ANY DEMANDS ON ITS USE. SORRY THAT’S THE NAME OF THE ENTERTAINMENT GAME! You do not own the rights to the material.

WATERMARK YOUR ART. SAD BUT TRUE. We make a derivative, we do it. That way, we don’t care if someone lifts it.

On our commissions, SWAG 77 as a legal business entity, a Limited Liability Company, has affiliations with several other businesses that permit us to do things that other individuals might not be able to do. We have worked at this for 5 years and have had a Fan Table at Star Wars Celebrations for 2 years.

If you do not understand what I’m saying, then you need to BLOCK IGNORE BAN this blog and all our associated blogs. Because you will NEVER understand. I am responsible for what I say, not what you understand. There is a thing called Google.

Tone police me and I will block ignore ban your account on all my social media and make a post of the atrocity. This is business.

This post is not about attributions. We strive to give as many attributions as possible. THIS POST IS ABOUT SHARING ART TO A BROADER AUDIENCE NOT MATTER THE POST CONTENT. DON’T WORRY, WE PROMISE WE JUST WON’T SHARE YOUR ART AND WE WILL TELL OTHERS NOT DO IT ALSO.

Point of clarity: If you are earnestly trying to understand what we’re saying here, please feel free to email us at info@swag77.com

Thank you for your cooperation.
