Changes to the TOS (Terms of Service)

Following on from our recent article which detailed proposed changes to the Terms of Service, we've closed the consultation period and finalized the changes to reflect some amendments which were provided in feedback from the deviantART community.

The finalized changes to the Terms of Service can be seen below (click):


We have also made a change to our Etiquette Policy, which can be read here, which reflects the BETA release of Groups. Further helpful information about Groups can be found in the FAQ and elsewhere on deviantART.

If you would like to review all of the FAQ's on Groups you can go to help.deviantart.com and in the left-hand navigation, click on "Groups." You can view the full Terms of Service here.

We'd like to thank everyone for taking time to participate and for providing such valueable feedback during the consultation period.

Sincerely,
Fiona Hooley, aka $chix0r
Director of Community Operations, deviantART, Inc.

I'm still a bit confused (mostly because I really don't have the time to look over much aside from the new policy), but how in the world do we confirm our e-mail status? I'd look into it, but like I said: time. (That said, thanks in advance to anybody who answers.)

So, say we're moving out. We're not permitted to put a list of things for sale on our journals or a list of our eBay auctions or even COMMISSIONS OFFERED VIA OUR JOURNAL? Or is that not considered "commercial activity?"

I Was looking at the new terms of service when one of those fake virus scan pages popped up. I hope they fix that crap soon it shouldn't be on a respectable site.

OKay. Now this is just BULLSHIT!

Did Facebook/Myspace/twitter&sh1tty-co. buy this site too or something? There is a reason why I don't use my livejournal so much anymore, don't give me this shit on DeviantArt too!

The URL to reach this page (h t t p : / / c l . e x c t . n e t / ...) embedded in the notification e-mail looked very much like a phishing attack. I wasted a half hour trying to confirm what would happen if I clicked on it. Given the rampant fraud-by-click on the Internet these days, I would hope the staff at deviantART would simply resort to deviantART.com URLs instead of giving people who know something about this stuff a heart attack, just to review a TOS.

I am quite confused about reporting stolen art - now it looks exactly same as myspace terms for example. Their response is not very quick, they barely read emails and it`s extremely annoying contacting them. I thought previous system was good, not too complicated, not annoying and quick. Hm?
